Joan Baez, Vinicio Capossela adn Xavier Rudd for Emergency
Written by Redazione   
This year, once again, is being renewed the appointment with Live for Emergency in Saint Mark's Square, born of the collaboration between Emergency and the Municipality of Venice, organized and produced by Barley Arts, which sustains the Salam Cardiac Surgery Centre in Khartoum, Sudan; all profits of the event will go to the Centre.

 

On the 22nd of July, on the large stage to be set up in the Square, starting at  8.15 p.m. will perform Joan Baez, Vinicio Capossela and the Australian master of all instruments Xavier Rudd: three great artists from three different continents, brought together by this important Emergency project.

 

The event will be initiated by Rudd, a young revelation, a singer-songwriter of international fame. Rudd is a confirmed supporter of the cause of the Aborigenal people, he has studied their music and rythms, as well as a refined composer and an incredible one man band.

 

Following him is Joan Baez, the American folk rock icon, involved in social and political causes since the 1970s. Having initiated her career very early, in 1959, Miss Baez, with her acoustical notes and extraordinary voice, will remind us of the peace movements and the struggles for the defense of human and civil rights. In Venice, accompanied by Erik Della Penna at the guitar, Dean Sharenow at the drums and percussion and Michael Duglas at the bass, will present a selection from those numerous hits that made her famous all over the world, passing from child ballads to spirituals, from refined songs to folk and country songs.

 

The evening will end with one of the most original contemporary Italian artists, Vinicio Capossela. A composer, musician, actor, writer, internationally well-known, he has won numerous awards and acknowledgements. The artist will be accompanied by Vincenzo Vasi at the theremin and percussion, Alessandro Stefana at the guitar, Zeno De Rossi at the drums, and Glauco Zuppiroli at the double bass.
