On the routes of migrants: the Eritrean tradition meets the Mediterranean

The meeting between the musical traditions of Eritrea and the sounds of the Mediterranean.

This is the new project of Selam Yemane, poet, singer, artist, which will be presented in world premiere December 14, 2013 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica.

A talent cultivated in the silence of her beloved land, Eritrea, for a young woman arrived in Europe, like many others, with the flourishing of the Third Millennium.

A project that is a collaboration with singer Barbara Eramo and musician / producer Stephen Saletti (oud, bouzouki), founders of the Piccola Banda Ikona.

The result is a music that reinvent the musical tradition of Eritrea making her encounter with the vocals and instruments of the Mediterranean who join the krar, Eritrean tool.

A journey in music, on migration routes, a new concept of integration.

Cultural dialogue, human and artistic from the shores of Africa arrives in Europe and gives a concrete meaning to the concept of world music, as music can encounter.

For several years in Rome, Selam was immersed in the peace of everyday life can and discovered that her thoughts in verse could turn into songs. She studied music, she met the nuances of her own voice.

Songs of love and thoughts veiled nuances of a great nostalgia for her homeland. Selam, in fact, writes and sings the melodies of an ancient tradition, that of Eritrea. But it also tells of an encounter with a culture, that of the West, with whom he has long ago decided to mingle.

After her first CD "Nafike" released in 2012, the art project involves the construction of a new album, which Selam Yemane is already working with Barbara Eramo and Stefano Saletti, which will be published in 2014.

Saletti Stephen and Barbara Eramo: For years present on the Italian and international scene in the music world, ethnic and folk songs, the multi-instrumentalist Stephen Saletti and singer Barbara Eramo work to the rediscovery of the melodies and the sounds of the many countries that face the Mediterranean. In their original compositions sung in Sabir, the language of the dialogue between the peoples of the Mediterranean.
