“Sirena” is his first solo effort where he wrote and produced all of the tracks. “I put melody, arrangement and composition first and then integrated the guitar. It’s not just a “riff fest”, but rather an all around fun musical experience. With Renato’s assistance, we then combined World/Latin rhythms with hip-hop and electronica grooves to create something new, fresh and an exciting addition to the World Music genre”.
Also on board are vocalists Liz Raquell, contributing hauntingly beautiful vocals on “Sirenity”;
Lisa Taylor on “Chiamila Gypsy” and featured on bass is Steve Uccello on “Partenope” .
