Le note di un vecchio classico di Angelo Branduardi, con la lira al posto del violino, rivisitate all’insegna della tradizione musicale popolare calabrese. E’ l’originale scommessa a cui Gabriele Macrì, giovane polistrumentista originario di San Vito sullo Jonio (Cz), ha dato vita con il brano “Il violinista di Dooney – quando suona la mia lira” prodotto dall’etichetta CalabriaSona e che ha incassato anche il placet del celebre cantautore che aveva reso omaggio nel 1986 al poeta irlandese Yeats e alla musica celtica.

Il brano è in uscita oggi su tutte le piattaforme digitali a cui seguirà il videoclip che sarà diffuso in anteprima l’8 aprile su Calabria Sona Tv e il 9 aprile sul canale YouTube dello stesso circuito.Macrì, sin da bambino, ha calcato i palchi più importanti e, grazie alla sua passione, riesce a suonare qualsiasi strumento tradizionale. Oggi, a 22 anni, arriva l’esordio da solista dopo aver completato gli studi classici in accademia approfondito la tecnica della lira. E’ cresciuto suonando con grandi del calibro di Mimmo Cavallaro e Ciccio Nucera, è stato al fianco anche di Nour Eddine Fatty, noto musicista del Marocco e, dopo qualche anno trascorso a Milano, ha fatto ritorno in Calabria fronteggiando la chiusura forzata del covid con la creatività musicale. “Insieme a Pietro Procopio, al basso e chitarra, e a Maddalena Grosso, voce e chitarra battente – racconta – abbiamo registrato il brano in un giorno.


L’idea è stata quella di riarrangiare il brano di Branduardi con gli strumenti tradizionali calabresi e traducendo il testo in dialetto rispettandone il significato originale. E’ una ballata che ben si coniuga con la musica etnica popolare e del Mediterraneo, lo stesso Branduardi ci ha ringraziato, ci ha fatto i complimenti e ci ha detto che condividerà volentieri la canzone sui suoi canali social”. Questo è il primo tassello di un progetto più ampio ideato insieme a CalabriaSona e al suo CEO, Giuseppe Marasco: “C’è la volontà di lavorare su un più ampio repertorio omaggiando il cantautorato italiano – conclude Macrì – da rileggere in chiave etnica e popolare con le nostre peculiarità e sonorità inconfondibili. Anche se non possiamo ancora suonare dal vivo, non vogliamo stare fermi e le difficoltà del momento non devono essere un pretesto per fermare la passione”.
