Sweet, evocative, touching. One of the sweetest melodies I ever heard. Piano, strings and electronic music melts perfectly in this ballad.
Manuel Zito began playing and studying classical music at the age of five. In 2002, after listening to the Coldplay album "A rush of blood to the head" he also dedicated himself to listen and play "non-classical" music too.
Parallel to the study of the piano, which will led him to the graduation at the Conservatory "S. Pietro a Majella" of Naples in 2012, he starts to play with different groups of various musical genres around Italy. In 2010, he collaborates with the PiccolaOrkestraPerPrestazioniOccasionali group. In 2014 he treads the stage of the "Meeting del mare" in Marina di Camerota (Sa), opening the Gogol Bordello's concert. In the same year he also treads the stage of the Mei in Faenza.
In the meantime, he focused his attention about the study of music and audiovisuals. In 2017 he attends the Music for Film's course at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. He realizes that he has a passion for Nordic-European music that will lead him to record his first album entitled "Fernweh" at the "Sundlaugin Studio" (where artists as Sigur Ros, Damien Rice, Yann Tiersen, Bjork among others recorded their works) in Mosfellsbær (Iceland) in August 2017.
His first album "Fernweh" will be released on April 27th 2018.
