Saravà means “force that moves nature”. The same force that illuminated Danise during his journey across Amazonia and turned the composition of the new album into a spiritual journey. Sa-ra-và means “Hello” in Portuguese, that is “Ave” in Latin, but in afro-brazilian cultures it has got an even deeper meaning. For this reason it is used as a mantra: Sa indicates Force and God; Ra, Ruling and Movement; Và is Nature and Energy. In Danise’s vision, it becomes poetry. Ten original compositions following a refined musical research, able to merge classical tradition (like “La mia villanella”, reinterpretation of the profane songs appeared for the first time in Naples in the XVI century), mediterranean jazz (“Shunya Tango Mediterraneo”), instrumental sperimentations (in “Araliya” with the rammer drum, a Neapolitan variation of the hang drum, but made in copper, “ramm” actually), melodic ballads (as the melancholic “Partenope tra le onde”), folk energy (in “E ‘Ca Tarantella” accompanied by the bass of Massimo Moriconi, a musician who used to play with Mina, and who has collaborated with her in almost 30 albums, since 1983), atmospheres from the far Brazil (as in Saravà, the track giving name to the whole album, with the participation of the singer Mbarka Ben Taleb). Danise shows that the distance from Naples and from the African percussions that make up the rythmic structure of the whole album, is just physical. And therefore negligible. When he sits at his piano he repeats his personal mantra: “When the soul on the instrument is real, the emotion resounds in the same way somewhere else in the world”. “Saravà”, released by the Neapolitan record label Full Heads, is available in both physical and digital stores from February 10th, thanks to Audioglobe and Believe who distribuited it. In the same days of release, Danise has been performing his tournée across Brazil, where everything started.
