Andrea Poggio (Art-Pop, Milano) + Itaca (Duo) (Italo-Pop, Berlin)
präsentiert von Italia Music Export-SIAE, The Postie & ByteFM
Andrea Poggio is full of intriguing contradiction. Throughout his music he challenges the traditional, while having a classical Italian air about himself. Just like Milan, the city he lives in, he combines sophistication with innovative and forward thinking.
His solo album “Controluce” (2017) is a lyrical and musical treat for those who appreciate elegant and sensitive narratives of everyday life tided up with original, synthetic sound.
"Poggio, who corresponds to a Lombard Wes Anderson, produces distinct and valuable pop that is both cultured and cosmopolitan" - Le Monde
Itaca are Ossi Viola and Lo Selbo on their relentless odyssey. They met for the first time in 2011. Back then, Ossi lived in Rome studying sacral music. Lo Selbo visited Rome regularly. Shortly after, Ossi and Lo were a couple and began to sing together in Itaca. Although both live in Berlin, they decided to sing in the language of their first meeting: Italian. Itaca developed their peculiar style, that is influenced by Italian cantautori of the 70s (Battisti, Battiato, Dalla), Europop of the 80s (Yazoo, Human League), and Avant-Electro of the new millennium (The Knife, Animal Collective).
