During the last decade Alessandro Mannarino became famous all around Italy as the modern embodiment of a traditional way of making music. Growing up in Rome, he brought the old style of the traditional Roman singer “de borgata” to the attention of the whole Italian public. He crafts beautiful songs that bring the listener in fairy tale-like atmospheres, undersea travels, or directly teleport them into the narrow alleys, crowded taverne and lively small squares of Monti and Trastevere, some of the oldest neighborhoods of Rome.
Alternatively singing in Italian and Roman accent, his raucous voice has become now unmistakable, and Mannarino uses it as a tool for the most different styles, from ballads to spoken-word stornelli to, in its most recent works, more pop-style songs.
Elisir d’Amor – Lyrics
From Mannarino’s first album, Elisir d’Amor makes the listeners believe to be in a crowded street a Rome where a street seller is selling a special love filter that would makes everybody happy and life easier and less stressful. It is almost impossible to listen to this song and not start moving at the rhythm of the music.
