With a personality that goes over the top accompanied by a plot of madness, Alessandro Orland presents himself on the occasion of the release of his first album.
Orlando | Ogni cosa accadrà certamente (Everything will certainly happen): (artistic production by Danilo Cherni) will be presented by the constant entering and leaving from one painting to another through texts, places and evocative images with which the artist plays with.

"About three years ago I was convoked by Alessandro Centofanti (he was the artistic director of the Urban 49 label) with the presence of Stefano Mastruzzi (director of Saint Louis music school and executive producer of the label) and I was given the task to hold the artistic production Alessandro Orlando's record (aka "Orlando"). I immediately tried to arrange two pieces that I chose from the demos I was given and then Orlando began to sing them. The beginning was not the best because we did not agree on the choices of sounds, musical and rhythmic parts and I was not convinced of the part he had sung.
In the end, even a little discouraged, I tried to face another piece and miraculously a light sparked: the song was "Io bevo (Cointreau)" and here we immediately agreed and a long creative period began that led to the final drafting of the record.
Thanks to the collaboration of numerous friends (Maurizio Perfetto, Giovanni Di Caprio, Valentino Cervini, Fabio Pignatelli, Guglielmo Senatore, Dario Zema, Cristiana Polegri, Andrea Casali, Roberta Lombardini and Marta Cherni) we managed to create a record that, in my opinion, contains three elements that are a bit rare in recent years: quality, originality and poetry."
Orlando | Ogni cosa accadrà certamente: listening carefully to this first effort of Orlando, you will immediately perceive these elements because Orlando is a very special guy, both for his culture and curiosity, but above all for his sensitivity and artistic maturity.
It is no coincidence that Orlando is a great music listener, passionate reader of books and all this is reflected in the poetry and originality of the lyrics, where you will surely find phrases and thoughts that you have formulated in your mind but you have never had the opportunity to express .
I invite you all to listen to this work with curiosity, especially in a historical moment in which there seems to be no more wonder and diversity.
