"CGS shows exactly why they are still alive after so many years, they play at a fabulous high level and this album is like a storm in my head, taking over my brains and heart. With typical influences from the (Southern) Italian traditions, but also with sounds and rhythms from other mediterranean regions and Africa, they create a kind of Italian folk 2.0 and again they are leading the way to the young generations of bands and musicians. All of this played at a constant high level with passion and craftsmanship, with feeling for tradition and modern times. One of the best Italian albums I added to my collections in a long time"
While we’re waiting for the coming Live concerts in France and Belgium, we’re pleased to see that “La voce Toa” is in France Inter’s playlist!!!
