Italian Superstar JOVANOTTI Announces First Round of 2012 US Concert Dates

North American Label Association with ATO Records

Italy's best-selling singer, songwriter and rapper Jovanotti ( ) announces his first round of 2012 US concert dates and new North American label association with ATO Records. As Italy's ambassador to the global music scene, in 2011 the superstar Tuscan made the first-ever appearance by a new generation Italian language artist at a major US rock festival, performing at Bonnaroo on a stage curated by Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hütz. Jovanotti's scorching set in the Tennessee heat was unanimously lauded by American music fans, industry and critics, marking the artist as one of the discoveries of the storied event's 10th anniversary edition.

Jovanotti spent the rest of 2011 reaffirming his position as Italy's number one artist where his 12th studio album Ora (Now) debuted atop the the charts, going on to sell over 500,000 copies, accompanied by over 50 sold-out arena and stadium dates.

Slated for Spring 2012, Jovanotti continues a string of firsts with his debut album for ATO Records, ( ) the noted artist-focused label home to a diverse roster of acts including Rodrigo Y Gabriela and Primus. The career retrospective will feature new material for the American market and is being produced by Ian Brennan (Tinariwen). In March Jovanotti sets the stage offering a preview of what's to come in 2012 with a coast to coast swing of club shows in select cities with his transatlantic band.

Kicking off on March 10, Jovanotti will make his long-awaited Miami debut at the city's newest hotspot Grand Central. Well-known as a pop-star throughout Latin America in the 1990's, an appearance at Colombian mega-star Juanes' 2009's Paz Sin Fronteras concert in Havana, Cuba sparked a re-discovery of the Jovanotti throughout the region. It also revealed a connection between the artist and the new generation of Latin-Alternative acts including Bomba Estereo, Los Amigos Invisibles and Ana Tijoux, who grew up on Jovanotti's music and now shared the stage with him on recent US shows. In the first half of 2012 recorded collaborations between Jovanotti and Paz Sin Fronteras founders Juanes and Spanish superstar Miguel Bosé will be released worldwide.

On March 12th and 13th, Jovanotti returns to his adopted home town of New York City offering a pair of intimate club shows at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg and Manhattan's Bowery Ballroom. Before his own downtown headline show on March 13, Jovanotti will head uptown to make a 1 song guest appearance with TV On The Radio at Carnegie Hall, as part ofThe Music of The Rolling Stones' Hot Rocks 1964-1971 concert line-up. This will be Jovanotti's debut performance on the prestigious Carnegie stage.

From March 14 through 16th, Jovanotti heads to Austin, Texas and the SXSW Music Festival, where he is expected to be reunited with musical friends and collaborators such as Michael Franti, among others. Jovanotti closes his Stateside sweep on March 17 in Los Angeles at the historic El Rey Theatre. Summer festival dates to be announced.

Patrizia Laquidara-- Italian Singer & Songwriter Makes Her Debut In New York City.

Italian singer and songwriter Patrizia Laquidara unites the world’s most seductive cultures in one spell-binding sound:
Born in Catania, Sicily and raised in Italy’s Veneto region, it was a post conservatory hiatus in Brazil that set Patrizia’s artistic course through a transatlantic musical love affair that connects Italy and the Iberian peninsula with South America. Patrizia writes and performs her own captivating pan-Latin mix of Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Her most recent album, 2007’s Funambola (Tight Rope Walker) was produced in New York City by Arto Lindsay and Patrick Dillett. It features musicians such as Mauro Refosco (David Byrne, Forro in the Dark, Bebel Gilberto) and Smokey Hormel (Beck, Tom Waits). In addition to Patrizia’s originals, Funambola includes compositions by some of Italy’s leading new-generation writers such as Pacifico and Joe Barbieri

Patrizia’s voice can be heard in film and television soundtracks in Italy, Spain and Portugal. A musician’s musician she has competed in Italy’s Premio Tenco and San Remo Festival, the country’s two leading events for both critics and the public. A seasoned festival performer, Patrizia was chosen by fellow Catania native Carmen Consoli to appear on an all star-women’s tribute concert at 2007’s Etna Fest.

Her musical sound is truly unique and very soothing, a wonderful mix of genres. I know New York will welcome her with open arms. She's currently touring parts of California and Seattle, but for the New Yorkers who haven't seen or heard of her yet, this will be the debut. Listen to her myspace music page for a preview of her gorgeous voice.

She's also making a guest appearance with our very own talented and unique, Italian singer & songwriter: Jovanotti. Check the listing below for concert info.
