The promoter behind the initiative is Matteo Cappella himslef, the singer-songwriter who, with his "context album", talked about himself, setting the form of the "concept" to the different soundscapes he lives and had lived, from the metropolis to the Apennine province.
Matteo Cappella | Metropolia, is a “Context Album”, a walk through the streets of a new city, the mapping of 8 districts of the metropolitan spirit. Matteo Cappella seted his songs in the different soundscapes he experiences, music played between the Apennines and the city.
Matteo Cappella was born in Rome in 1990. When he discovered the guitar started playing and writing music and lyrics. From Bellegra, the town where he grew up, around 2011, he moved to Rome, allowing himself to get in touch with the different musical realities of the capital between academies and independent circuits. He collaborated with various songwriters and instrumentalists in Lazio, Campania, Abruzzo and Sardinia carrying out a research that ranges from local culture to world music. Pervaded by travels, meetings and studies in Italy and abroad, the singer-songwriter composed his songs by setting the form of the concept to the different soundscapes he experiences, from the metropolis to the Apennine province. Thus was born his first "Context Album": Metropolia.
