Above The Tree & Drum Ensemble Du Beat
A new collaboration for Marco Bernacchia aka Above the Tree after the one with E-Side in 2012: now it is the turn of the Drum Ensemble Du Beat, a percussive duo formed by Edoardo Grisogani and Enrico "Mao" Bocchini. A tribal picture taken by the history, a history in which people still didn't sail with the wind at his back for fear of the unknown. A stage where the wind was more important than oil and deserved to use weapons to conquer them. A stream that tells of a silent journey to distant peoples who quietly take possession of a territory and that always silently, observed only by the "scary" nature all around, conquered until more powerful forces of more prepared people made it silently disappear not to leave almost no trace in history.
