As a visual artist, I get excited when I see something I’ve never seen before. It applies to music too. I love those who do things others don’t. I fell in love with Italian musician Vinicio Capossela when I picked up his last album L’Indispensabile at Virgin Megastore’s International section in 2003. It is so original and so surprising. Now this for so long almost unknown outside of Italy musician is becoming internationally recognised with his best-selling latest album Ovunoque Proteggi. He is about to undertake a world tour, which I’ve heard will bring him to New York City.
