Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Roberta Carrieri is an interesting woman. She’s a performance artist, clown and stilt-walker who sings for the group Fiamma Fumana. Her album’s title means “I say this to everyone” and I’ll take her word for it since my Italian’s bad.
Mia madre (My mother) is sweet at least in sound and with a warm vocal and a persuasive melody.
Se Potessi is quite lovely, Carrieri singing forcefully and with great feeling to a strident backing.
Bianca is kinda fun and poppy, Carrieri’s cool voice coming to the fore well. She really has her own style.
The closing title song brings the album to a fitting end, Carrieri sings in relaxed fashion to a soft melody. She’s a gifted performer and her album’s a treat.
