  Every now and then I decide to share a musical discovery, today is one of those days. In the past few days I have been listening to the latest CD by Marco Calliari. It is a CD of traditional Italian classics.

    Marco Calliari is a Montreal based musician of Italian origin who has taken a long side trip to rediscover his Italian roots. For about sixteen years Marco Calliari was in a heavy metal band called Anonymus. The band was quite successful on the Quebec metal scene. They toured extensively throughout the province. It is in 2004 that his career took a turn and this year he left Anonymus to devote himself to his solo career.

   Mr Calliari released his first solo album two years ago. The album was received well by critics and his fans, some who followed him from his metal days. The album was done entirely in Italian  and consisted of original compostions and has a world beat/jazz style to it. I actually saw him in concert supporting the album in the summer of 2005, it was a great outdoor show on a hot Saturday afternon in a park, lots of fun.

  Marco Calliari released his second solo album about a month ago. It is quite well done and has many Italian and Neapolitan classics done a la Calliari. Music is made to be listened to, so I suggest the following two links to get to know the music of Marco Calliari, enjoy.
