Huge Tip! Fame di Vento is Manuel Zurria's latest work. A triple CD to evoke the many suggestions and projects that have taken place in recent years, full of collaborations, of the Sicilian flautist. Fame Di Vento is also an idealized homage to Alighiero Boetti, a nomad by culture and vocation. In his footsteps, Manuel draws on the most diverse cultures, from the Lithuanian mystics to India and Sicily, from just-intonation to European-style minimalism. As he has already done in the past, Zurria immerses himself in the music that responds to his personal interests, making it his own, regardless of the instrumental destination and proposing it with personalized versions, built in the studio on multitrack. A thunderous photograph of the moment to reflect on the movements taking place with a still sound image of rare power.
