The singer-songwriter will perform at the Arena del Mare of the Porto Antico, as part of the Goa-Boa.
Genoa – Sounds, words, evoked images, emotions. F.rancesco Motta returns to the Goa-Boa festival, Monday 30 August at the Arena del Mare in Porto Antico, and does so to present the new album “Semplice”, in addition to all those songs that have made him one of the best rock songwriters of current Italian music. Opening Emma Nolde. The concerts will start at 8pm.
The festival is organized with the support of Mibact and Siae as part of the “Per chi Crea” program. At the entrance it is possible to undergo free buffer to enter the live.
What emotion did it feel to return to the stage?
“Total. Live has always been my true dimension. In my career I started touring even before making records and songs. And then with the band, at this moment, a special union was created. It is as if all together we are reacting to everything that has happened in these two years. The new album “Semplice” was born to be brought live and we are finally succeeding ».
«With the seated audience I have already had the opportunity to compare myself, in the past, for some dates in theaters. I like a certain kind of attention. I’ve never been a stage diving person (smiles, ed), but what I don’t like is the difference between us and the rest of Europe where the concerts are picking up just as they should be. Having said that, I feel that those who come to a live really want it, have the need and all this creates a special atmosphere despite the restrictions. It seems to be all a group of superheroes who just want to get excited after a difficult period ».
“I find nowadays maybe sticking to the rules has become a lot more punk than anything else.”
«Yes, I wrote it exposing myself on the question of the Salmo concert organized in Olbia. I too have the balls for what is happening in Italy, for those rules, to which the world of music is subjected, which we are now the only ones to respect. The gatherings for the victory at the Europeans were hallucinating, but no one intervened. But all this does not justify doing the same, it is useless and endangers other people, which is why I do not agree with what Psalm did. Punk is always labeled as “breaking the rules”, but perhaps when these are absurd and senseless, the most counter-current act is to respect them by meeting the promoters and organizers who are risking so much this summer to make concerts following the standards “.
«It is a narration of my three discs with a particular attention to the last one. This year we hit the lineup right away, it’s a precise and solid story that goes from quieter songs to psychedelia. I believe that the song “Simple” is really made especially for us, for everything we are experiencing. And then there is “A te” with which we open the concert: I am thrilled to play and hear it ».
He wrote the soundtrack for the film “La terra dei figli”.
«A wonderful experience, a path on which I want to continue because it has reconnected me to the craftsmanship of making music. Working on a soundtrack is like dealing with a band, we all have the same goal and we give everything to achieve it ».
At the opening of the concert in Genoa there will be Emma Nolde.
“Is fantastic. A young artist who deserves a lot of attention, I hope that the public will arrive soon to listen to her and if possible, as happened in Milan, we will play a song together ».
