    "Suspiro" is the first recording of the trio "Suonno D'ajere", Gian Marco

    Libeccio (guitar), Marcello Gentile (mandolin, mandola, Mandoloncello), Irene Scarato (vocals). Young and passionate about tradition, they elaborate their repertoire with a careful research of the Neapolitan singing path giving life to this work.

    The project of high cultural value was born in 2016 from the need to know and enhance what the city of Naples has produced in its vocal musical history. Even though they had different musical experiences, from jazz to light music, from popular music to the classic one, the members of the group have always been confronted with the Neapolitan song, remaining deeply fascinated.

    Their research explores all the Neapolitan repertoire from ' 600 to the present day, proposing arrangements that combine stylistic rigour with the cues of contamination. It makes a contemporary execution spring but still keeps the feet firm in the tradition.

    The Suonno D'ajere choose to propose even less diffused or unexplored pieces of the repertoire. The intention is to restore dignity and depth to this tradition, untying it from the image of showcase to offer it to the public in a thorough form. The choice of the equipment recalls the formations from the "Posteggia" of the first ' 900. The execution has, however, a more classic approach, often far from the street versions. The result is a mix between popular and classic and is representative of the continuous exchange between the two worlds, the cornerstone of Neapolitan music.
    On March 2019 they published the firse album:”Suspiro": Ten Songs for the debut of the Neapolitan trio. The album was produced entirely in Naples at the Novecento Auditorium in the halls of the historic Phonotype record label, founded in 1901, the first in Italy. The choice is not accidental, in those halls the most important authors of Naples, at the  beginning of ‘900, gave life to their musical works. The tracklist retraces the period of the Neapolitan song proper called "classical", presenting the different stylistic nuances. Just the last track “Suspiro”, it’s an own original song written in Neapolitan classica style.

    The trio starts partecipating to the festivals of the city and in a short time begins outstanding artistic experiences. In September 2017 they performed at the 74 ° edition of the Venice Biennale; The recording of the song "Palummella" has been chosen as the soundtrack of the documentary "La Chimera – Notes for a film about “Le vele di Scampia ". In November of the same year they performed at the Teatro "Dal Verme" in Milan, taking part in the presentation of the Volume "History of Neapolitan Song", by Maestro Scialò.

The winning of the first prize at the festival "Sanremocantanapoli" 2018 brought them in December of the same year, as guests to the historic "Festival of Naples", where they collected great success of critics and audiences. Lately the band partecipating in the memorial “Je sto vicino a te – 64” in memory of Pino Daniele, famous neapolitan singer.
