AlmamegrettaOne of the most accomplished and celebrated bands in the field of contemporary, unclassified pop music, Almamegretta are masters in combining a wide range of elements such as dub, funk, reggae, world music and electronica, all filtered through their own deep southern Italian roots. The band from Naples is now back with a new album, mixed by the dub master Adrian Sherwood, who had already been involved in their mid-nineties-masterpiece “Sanacore”. This new work consists of ten tracks, nine originals plus a well chosen cover of an old Neapolitan hit by Nino d’Angelo transformed into a lovers rock style song. Almamegretta’s original line up of Gennaro T Tesone, Paolo Polcari and Raiz is augmented by a great list of collaborators and the result is a strong and multi layered set made of Afro-funk numbers, reggae ballads, and other riddims, while the British dub influence remains central within the group’s wide sound palette. The title “EnnEnne”, which means No Name, is inspired by the acronym used for those who are born from unknown parents. The right title for such a highly dense picture based on the combination of contemporary sounds and social topics.
