cafeAmaro = Diane Peters+Apo( tech)
Diane Peters - harp and vocals Andrea Ponzoni - electronica and keys
(LA VERSIONE ITALIANA, SOTTO RIPORTATA ) Born out of an improvisation duo of d.j. and harp, cafeAmaro has now become an album of all original music, and an articulated electro-acoustic project with no boundaries of genre, floating between ambient, soundscape, electronica, nu-jazz and pop.
A dreamlike journey of harp, voce and electronica. The live performance is accompanied by faded random super 8 images, giving a special atmosphere to the nocturnal lounge sound.
“cafeAmaro is a successful combination of art between video, elettronica music, voice and harp , poetry and emotion in the moment. ”
Vincenzo Zitello “ ... I heard moments of Cinematic Orchestra e Craig Armstrong, Bohren und der Club of Gore and Angelo Badalamenti, Pat Metheny, Tortoise and Dead Can Dance.” A.Giulio Magliulo
“..a constant exchange entwined with information resulting in a high end refined instrumentale music….including layers of detached avantguard electronica, exploring the use of the harp resulting in a discovery of a music of high quality” Marco Zordan- review
