We are proud to announce our first release, Luigi Porto’s new album
in collaboration with the Italian label
LA LUMACA DISCHI.
Seven years after SCIMMIE (2014, Cineploit/Snowdonia) the Italian composer from NYC comes back with an album of songs in English language, that features several talented guests: from Swedish singer Alexandra Linde to composer and multi-instrumentalist Ray Lustig, Italian songwriter and guitarist Al the Coordinator, drummer Massimo Palermo, the woodwind guru Mirko Onofrio and others.
Dedicated to the neighborhood of Washington Heights – together with parts of Harlem, the last working class outpost on the island of Manhattan – TELL URIC is a collection of stories and musical frescoes that deal with the concepts of predestination and class.
It includes the main theme of ULJHAN – THE KNOT, an Indian film directed by Ashish Pant and presented this year at Marché du Cannes and Santa Barbara Film Festival: a story of clash between the cast system and the social class in modern times India.
TELL URIC will be available in LP and CD in stores and on online platforms starting May 7th.
