DURI I BANCHI

(October 1993) The second album represents a step forward in the band's ongoing interest in the fusion between the rhythms and music of the southern hemisphere and the form of the song that sees one of its highest expressions in the Italian tradition. So, beyond the ever-present reggae, this album blossoms with the colours of zouk, salsa, ragamuffin, rai and gypsy, all blended naturally with the Italian melody interpreted by the soft and unmistakable voice of Skardy. It's a step that required the skill of musicians with these rhythms and colours in their blood; and it was why Pitura Freska went to Paris to meet Moroccan drummer Mokhtar Samba (Salif Keita and Ultramarine) and Willie N'for, bassist of Mory Kante's group and Ghetto Blaster.
