I am 21 and in the study Theatre Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, the audience awaits the arrival of Selam Yemane, the Eritrean poet and singer who has captivated audiences with her latest CD 'Nafike'.
I am struck, from the first moment, the variety of languages and cultures of the viewers of this show.
So, clearly, it is clear that Stephen Saletti, producer and multi-instrumentalist, had told me a few minutes earlier during the interview, the music, as an art and passion, is one of the powerful means by which one can find a meeting point between populations of the Mediterranean, has always been in conflict with each other due to the many political and religious differences.
And this is precisely the message that music Selam Yemane, thanks to the contribution of Stephen, of course, and the wonderful voice and enthusiasm of Barbara Eramo, unable to send.
A tongue of union, of course, that despite the difficult to understand for people like me it was the first time they are approached, it is now to be a warm tongue, a language that welcomes and approaches, which unifies, a language which, while not knowing we can understand its meaning: "Diversity should not scare us, even to the diversity we should draw near with a passion and freedom that nothing like music can express."
