Every night you would hear Sergio Cammariere on the Bellavitae soundtrack. A native of Calabria, Sergio has a unique compositional style — one that blended very well with the ambiance of our restaurant.
After a career as a niche musician, distinguished by his collaboration with poet and singer/songwriter Roberto Kunstler, he appeared at the Sanremo Festival in 2003 performing the song Tutto quello che un uomo. He placed third and won the Critics’ Choice award.
My favorite album, Sul Sentiero, was released a year later, in November 2004. It features rich string arrangements, fiery jazz influence, and syncopative point – counterpoint. Two years later, Cammariere released his first self-produced record, Il Pane, Il Vino e la Visione, collaborating with several well-known jazz artists, including Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins and Bebo Ferra.
Many of his songs are not available in the United States via MP3 releases, but you can click below to sample / purchase some of his music:
