A guitar and a male voice a ukulele and a female voice, the music of Ilaria Graziano and Francesco Forni is an original mix of blues, folk, country, Argentine tango, Neapolitan songs and dolce vita, sung in English, French, Spanish and Italian , a fascinating journey through Naples, Mexico and Texas. Their concert is a show difficult to forget, a continuous exchange between the warm and enveloping sound of the guitar and the voice of Francesco, the amazing vocality of Ilaria, which seems to come from another time and space and two Stomp Boxes to mark the heartbeat of their songs.
Ilaria Graziano and Francesco Forni have three records. "From Bedlam to Lenane" wins the MarteAwards2012 award for "best record". Some songs become part of the hit soundtracks of the hit films: "La Strada" and "On Y Va" of "The Art of Happiness" by Alessandro Rak (awarded by numerous international awards, the most recent the European Film Awards), "Mad Tom Of Bedlam" of the sentimental comedy "Maldamore". On December 5, 2013 the second album, "Come 2 Me", was released, which was received very positively by the critics. Eleven original songs, dedicated to love, war, death, the world of dreams, the journey: they seem to come directly from an imaginary linked to the novels of pirates, westerns and rural blues. "Twinkle Twinkle" is their third album, three years after the previous one, written and conceived on tour. And it could not be otherwise because in the last two years they have been around the world, from Budapest to Prague, from London to Montreal, from Geneva to Brussels, with more than 70 dates in France and a tour with the show "Angelically Anarchists" "By and with Michele Riondino,
The new songs and arrangements, always essential and minimal, but with a range of sounds and scenarios more varied, take inspiration directly from the road traveled, reflecting the correspondence between the time they were living and the emotional universe that was driving their choices, talking about living emotions.
The title refers to a simple but eternal melody and represents that particular spark, different for each one, that star that shines in the night and that indicates a direction in every condition of obfuscation, of confusion, of darkness.
Even the image of the disc reflects this movement, not a pose, but a suspension, something that recalls the darkness and the light present in it, which represents their emotional journey and their state of mind, opening a crack, a crack from which you can look inside those small and subtle moments of intimacy ...
