'A Canzone 'e Partenope

"A sunny, yet intimately melancholic album. The music flows like an easy chat on a summer's eve. Something tells us that this duo has a few more tricks up their sleeves.." - De Standaard on 'A Canzone 'e Partepone (****)


The tale about the founding of Naples is surrounded by a poetical atmosphere and is based on the myth of Odysseus. This classical hero sailed his ship past the sirens (half-women, half birds), without being mislead by their enchanting voices. Because of this, their spell was broken and the sirens turned into rocks. Except for the siren Partenope, whose faith was different: she threw herself into the sea to drown. On the shore where her body washed up, Naples was founded. Reality obviously tells us a different story, but it is extraordinary nonetheless that Naples turned out to be the city par excellence when talking about cities with a unique musical tradition.
