Pippo Pollina

Italy

It seems to be like a view into the studio: someone is working, thinking about things, picking up the guitar, sitting down at the piano. Songs come into being, associations follow the inspiration of the moment. Memories and reflections from a private perspective, personal, appreciative, emotional. “Nell’attimo” (At the moment) is the sketchbook of a cantautore who looks for diversity in small things, in the clarity of touching, melancholic songs. It is a celebration of the moment, sung with the devotion of a musician who can capture the world in words and melodies. Pippo Pollina is about intensity and presence, but not necessarily just about harmony. After all, not everything is calm, not every song is a pat on the back, even if reconciliation could be a leitmotif in his music.

The album “Nell’attimo” is a determination of position with topics that still concern Pippo Pollina today. It's about the relationships between people, man and woman, parents and children, about friendship, also about one's own place in the world and about the contrast between poor and rich countries, up to the inability to compare prosperity with poverty to be able to deal with. There are just a few passages where Stefania Verità (cello), Gianvito Di Maio (accordion) and Roberto Petroli's clarinet replenish the songs, this album is exclusively designed as a solo album that unfolds its power through the compositions, the voice accompanied with an instrument. It is also the starting point for a solo tour that Pippo Pollina will take through the halls and theaters through Europe next spring.
