In 1949 Renato Carosone founded is own band, almost unknown in an Italy rebuilding itself after WW2. In the next ten years he would go on to write a new page in the “Canzone Napolitana” throughout the world. In his own version of the neapolitan dialect and irony he was deeply influenced by his previous ten years in Addis Ababa. He had been directing bands of the new genres of the epoque: swing, cha cha cha, mambo and rock and roll. His recordings of the fifties were such a hit that Carosone turned into a global icon: his fusion of styles charmed all five continents...even China! Sixty years later in Barcelona, the Mediterranean capital, a multicultural group of musicians recreate the recordings that made Carosone's music a cultural heritage. Like a team of restorers on an old canvas Carosones is a sextet that tries to pick the compositions of the Maestro and preserve them without simplifying the original sound. This EP from Los Carosones includes: Tu vuo fa l'Americano, Maruzzella, Pigliate na pastiglia, Guaglione, 'O Sarracino. The band songbook inclueds: Caravan Petrol, Scapricciatiello, Mambo italiano, Luna rossa, Malafemmena, La pansé, Chella lá and Torero and more unforgettables tunes.
