To make new with old: this is the credo of Nu Guinea. Neapolitans and proud of it, Lucio Aquilina and Massimo Di Lena resurrect the music that made their city (and then the world!) shake in the 70s and 80s. What’s in store for Nuits Sonores? A disco-boogie that makes you want to sway while snapping your fingers, all enhanced with Afro and jazzy influences.

Because yes, at the turn of the 70s and 80s, Naples – Italy’s enfant terrible – was the epicenter of intense musical activity. Artists such as Tony Esposito, Pino Daniele, Tullio de Piscopo or Napoli Centrale jumped head first into the cosmic expanses of Italian disco, blurring the boundaries between disco, electro and jazz. It is this synthetic and sunny disco that the duo Nu Guinea reappropriates. Noticed in 2016 with the album The Tony Allen Experiments – a tribute to the famous Nigerian drummer -, Lucio Aquilina and Massimo Di Lena made a comeback last year with a new album entitled Nuova Napoli. This opus, entirely sung in Neapolitan, is the result of an important research work to restore the sounds of the time.
