With kind thank you to Grisù @moon_grisu, here’s translation of the latest interview with LP. Thank you so much!
Q: You’ll sing “Pizzicarella” a typical traditional piece of music, what does our “Pizzica”, our music gives to you?
LP: For me the particular thing of this music is that it sounds like an ancestral music, something that brings us back to the origins, a music that is passed on from mother to son and that goes backwards to our ancestors; it’s also a very celebratory music of the traditions and so this is what I feel.
Q: What will you bring with you about this experience in your music? Perhaps could we find some hint of “Pizzica” in your next songs and so could you become a “Pizzica” testimonial?
LP: Honestly I think so, maybe not in this album, probably in the next and the reason is that I feel very attached to this music, there is something that I feel connected to me, to my origins; as I said, it brings me back to something ancestral and, besides this celebratory music nature, I feel a strong energy.
Q: What space do you think nowadays have popular music in musical language in general?
LP: I think there’s a return to the roots again, so the effort is to go back. There’s in music in general an attempt to always be original, but the originality in my opinion is found in the combination of ancient elements and new elements; so let’s go back and look inside, look inside our heart and it’s here where we find originality, looking introspectively at what we have in our heart.
