«Ballate per poveri Cristi». American preview

While waiting for «Ballate per uomini e bestie» to be released, Vinicio Capossela went on tour in the United States. The tour's name was Ballate per uomini cristi, a folk journey between Italy and America hanging on a trio made up of guitars and a piano, on the routes of those "poor devils" who crossed the fronteers between rural world and the city, between man and animal, between the living and the dead.



5th May 2019. Vinicio Capossela at Washington Kennedy Center.

With Alessandro "Asso" Stefana and Victor Herrero.
