If you are staying in Corsica during the Christmas holidays, you may have the opportunity to attend one of the presentation sessions of the “Imaginà”-cd in two Géant supermarkets on the island. This will take place on December 21 in Mezzavia, nearby Ajaccio, and on December 22 in Furiani, nearby Bastia. This will start at 17.30 hr on both days.
Ticket sales for the three Dutch concerts in Amsterdam (April 8), Heerlen (10 April) and Tilburg (April 11) has also started. Check the concert agenda for the details.
“Pace Santa” is one of the most impressive songs of the last CD “Imaginà”. Last week I Muvrini performed the song in Antwerp as follows:
Since Wednesday I Muvrini is staying in Belgium to lighten up the concert halls there with their music. The reviews are very positive, as this review shows of the first concert in Bruges of last Wednesday. Almost all concerts are already sold out, so hurry up if you want to participate in this extraordinary experience!
The reviewer says: “But the essence of I Muvrini is what makes them unique. These are the slow songs, the ones which go back to the Corsican polyphony, a style that thanks to this band has been given a modern identity in European music”.
Wednesday I Muvrini will resume their Belgian tour which they started with great acclaim on the third of November in Liège. Sometimes people ask me why I attend so many concerts, and if I am not getting bored with them. The answer is simple and straight: because each concert is such a great experience, with so much emotion and passion, that it never becomes boring. It is even stronger, I am drawn towards them, like a magnet. This sounds a bit exaggerated, and I realize it myself, but on the other hand, it is what you often hear from people who attend concerts of I Muvrini on a regular basis.
Fortunately movies show you much more than words can explain. Therefore this movie of “Ùn ti ne scurdà” of the concert in Liège. It takes 12 minutes, and contains everything the band stands for: great vocals, a guitarist who has undertaken the sitar, a drummer with masterful rolls, and above all a bass player who can sing so wonderful and is enjoying such an extremely catchy solo show, that the whole audience is carried away. Because bass player César Anot steals the show in this one, and he is also allowed to steal the show, because that’s also I Muvrini, the brothers grant the stage also to their musicians. As I said, the audience is carried away, on the boat, to Corsica, Ivory Coast, the native country of César, and back again to Liège. And we sing loudly with him “Pays-Bas”, “Anima”, et cetera, et cetera.
The motto of the song: “Never forget the day of your return, never forget the day of your return…” So, let’s not forget the day of Wednesday, the day when I Muvrini come back to the cold north, and undoubtedly will fire us all up with enthusiasm.
