A Canadian singer-songwriter whose music is a personal exploration of the Italian diaspora and its folklore, Montreal’s Marco Calliari rings in 2011 with a New York City return at The Living Room on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 8:00pm.

The concert doubles as a special open-to-the-public APAP Conference Showcase for the Quebec-based artist. Following 2009 Gotham sets at Joe’s Pub and (Le) Poisson Rouge, Calliari will serve up a US preview of his new album of original compositions “Al Faro Est” (At the Eastern Lighthouse), which was released in Canada in the Fall of 2010.

During the Summer of 2010 a remix of an earlier Calliari track “L’Americano” by Montreal DJ MC Mario became the surprise international dance sensation “We No Speak Americano”, racking up over 1 Million YouTube views and debuting in the Top 40 of the UK Pop Charts. A polished performer on the live circuit in North America and Europe, Calliari has shared the stage with top flight Italian artists such as Zucchero, Carmen Consoli, Vinicio Capossela and Peppe Voltarelli.

Calabria's PEPPE VOLTARELLI in NYC Concert on November 11, 2009.

Southern Italian singer-songwriter, composer and actor Peppe Voltarelli will make his New York City concert debut on Wednesday November 11, 2009 at (Le) Poisson Rouge.

Born in Italy’s Calabria region, the 40 year-old Voltarelli’s work is a modern Italian’s musical take on the diaspora of tight-knit Calabrian immigrant communities that continue to thrive throughout Europe and the Americas. At (Le) Poisson Rouge Voltarelli will offer a set drawn from his first solo album, 2007’s “Distratto ma perĂ²” (Distracted But However), a project which the Rome-based musician has supported with over 200 live shows in Italy and Europe, the results of which were released on his 2008 live album “Duisburg, Nantes, Praga”.

This New York appearance is part of Pan-American tour which will see Voltarelli perform for the first time in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Toronto and Montreal.

New York filmgoers have already had the opportunity to see Peppe Voltarelli in a leading role in the 2006 mockumentary feature “La Vera Leggenda di Tony Vilar” (The Real Legend of Tony Villar), which showed in official selection at the 2007 TriBeCa Film Festival. The semi-biographical plot follows the path of a contemporary Italian singer (Voltarelli), on the trail of a crooner from his Calabrian village (Vilar), who found fame and fortune in 1960’s Argentina and eventually disappeared into anonymity in the Bronx’s Italian community along Arthur Avenue. Directed by fellow Calabrian Giuseppe Gagliardi, “La Vera Leggenda di Tony Vilar” will be screened on Tuesday November 10, 2009 at NYU’s Casa Italiana as a preview to Wednesday’s (Le) Poisson Rouge event.

Voltarelli and Gagliardi previously collaborated on “Doichlanda”, a 2003 documentary about Italian immigration to Germany -- their ongoing music and film relationship producing numerous award winning video clips.

The opening act for Peppe Voltarelli’s (Le) Poisson Rouge date is the Montreal-based Italo-Canadian singer-songwriter Marco Calliari. The Calabrian-born, one time Latin American star, now based in New York, Tony Vilar will make a special guest appearance in Peppe Voltarelli’s set.
