So much happens in Europe that we is just off our radar here in the "isolated" USA. There has been great pro A Cappella in Italy for years. Cluster is now signed to SONY, after a successful run on "X-Factor" over there (the European equivalent to "American Idol"), and will be having an international release soon, hopefully. If you haven't heard the "Ghost Files" project, definitely check that out. Other groups that have been running for years, such as Mezzotono, are also worth checking out. A Cappella is all over Televisions and Radios in Europe (at least compared to here)!

Actually, it happened the other way around - Neri Per Caso were one of the earliest INFLUENCES on Basix, and Basix' first album was recorded and produced by 2 of the members of NPC.

I want to thank all the people at rarb for being such an awesome community, and especially the reviewers who wrote very kind of " Angoli diversi", our latest album.
Let me thank also Benjamin, he realized that my english isn't that bright and, with a little help in italian, he addressed me on how to send the cds for the review.
Angoli diversi was relesead on february 15th and it came out after 6 years of silence. It took us about 2 years to record it. Even if you don't know them, the 11 artists that sung in this album are extremely popular here in Italy...you can imagine how hard was to let them sing for us.
In other words we are so proud of Angoli diversi. Even if there's a huge crisis this album sold about 50000 copies ( gold record in italy is 35000).
Your review is the cherry on top of this beautiful cake.
Thank you very much.
Gonzalo Caravano- Neri Per Caso.

Ben che tuo inglese forse non sia perfetto, Gonzalo, penso che sia sicuramente meglio del italiano degli americani! E la musica, non si deve dire che e meravigliosa. Al prossimo album!
