Arsene Duevi, bass and guitar player, singer, choir director, composer and ethnomusicologist, arrived in Italy in 2002 and he is now an Italian citizen.
With a reputation for being a music shaman, in his second cd, Haya (Musicamorfosi 2016) premiered in Rome at Parco della Musica and in Milan at Blue Note, he sings in Ewe, Italian and French. Songs by Fabrizio De André and Boris Vian are performed in a peculiar afro style next to his original compositions, sharing the same message that comes directly form the “Southern” hemisphere: choose life, don’t let yourself be used by money, never give up, let’s hug, stand up, sing and let your voice sound in a sea of other voices. Haya in Ewe means “Rejoice” and it is his new moving Hymn to Life
