Connection and quality

He said that this project “It arose as a result of the isolation due to the covid-19 pandemic” which caused the immediate suspension and paralysis of all kinds of musical and cultural activity, with the aim of “doing something that could help alleviate all the damage that the pandemic was doing at an interpersonal and social level.”

Federico began by deliberately composing musical pieces of a “positive and cheerful” nature so that they would be liked by as many people as possible, that would invite people to meet and dance, and that would also have a musical quality, both in composition and in content. their execution.

Band with musicians of various nationalities

Later he created a band with musicians of different nationalities as “a gesture of brotherhood between nations in such difficult times.”

“The objective of creating this band is to regenerate the social fabric through musical concerts, to create spaces for encounters, for communication, for sharing,” the musician stressed.

In addition, the project considers the commitment to quality, the consumer society and the industry that has absorbed the musical phenomenon “reducing it to a mere consumer product”.
