Aparecidos - Palitobombonhelado (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU AltrOck 031
Completely charming album that should appeal to folks who love the more acoustic-based 'avant/progressive-yet-tuneful' stylings of L'Ensemble Raye, Feliu i Joan-Albert, 3 Mice, etc. This has definite Italian as well as South American folk influences and has ties to the very fine Calomito. The line-up is as follows:
Facundo Moreno: classical guitar, charango
Santiago Moreno: classicalal guitar
Tommaso Rolando: contrabass, electric bass
Marco Ravera: electric guitar
Santo Florelli: drums
Manuel Merialdo: percussions, glockenspiel
Great, unique instrumentation and simply a delight from start to finish: hugely recommended.

"Palito, Bombon, Heladooooo!"
It's the typical shout of “heladeros” in the street of Buenos Aires and South America. Cities and places that preserve the memory of times when ice for icecream was only imported from England and United States of America.
Argentinian brothers Santiago and Facundo Moreno of Buenos Aires arrived in Italy after the economic crisis of 2001 and integrated themselves into the musical scene of Genoa, giving life to the “Aparecidos” project, mixing jazz, folklore, milonga and experimentation. Those who have seen their concerts knows that there's a kind of magic, musically and also because of the close partnerships of the brothers with the world of circus and street theater...
South America, Andean music, tango, the narrow streets of Genoa, the port, improvisation, cumbia, milonga, the concerts in the streets, the magic of circus and its melancholy, all this is 'Aparecidos'."

Beautiful recording, much more joyous and uplifting than most mathematically dense rock oriented instrumental albums. This stuff is catchy as heck and provides a buzz not unlike some of Egberto Gismonti's best work. Likely to become a desert island disc for most people who manage to hear it.
