As I promised on last weeks Sunday Song post Buon Ferragosto I am going to feature the three Italian male singers individually over the next few weeks, starting today with Sergio Cammariere.

Sergio Cammariere was born in Crotone, Italy in November 1960 and is now regarded as a talented singer pianist within the genre of jazz and pop. He takes his inspiration from Italian composers, Latin America and the music of both classical and contemporary musicians. I have included a list of all his released music below, the first full length album 'Dalla Pace del Lontano' appeared in 2002. For more information on some of the music mentioned, just click on the blue links below the album artwork. It was in this year that his career really seems to have taken off and he won a number of prestigious awards.In 2003 he participated for the first time in the San Remo Song Festival with 'Tutto quello che un uomo' He comes third winning both the 'Critics Award' and the award for 'Best Musical Composition'.
2004 saw the release of his next album 'Sul Sentiero' a mixture of soul, Latin American rhythms and instrumental jazz. It is not until 2006 that his third album 'Il Pane, Il Vino e La Visione' is released another beautiful musical journey of love, the only language that needs no translation. The next album he released in 2008 was called 'Cantautore Piccolino' and is a compilation album of songs chosen by his fans.
I decided to include last weeks choice again,' Estate' but with a different video, as I found it so relaxing. It is after all the most appropriate for the time of year as it is still 'Summer' at least for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. My second choice is 'Sorella Mia' another one I personally found very summery.
I think it is very likely that I will be featuring Sergio Cammariere here again on Sunday Song in the future.
