    MEDITERRÁNEO - Julyo

    “Mediterráneo EP” review by Music8 Magazine of Bulgaria (Milen Moshkow) translated:

    “Smooth, Latin, Classical, Exotic... these are just a few words that could sum up the guitar playing of renowned Italian Award winner fusion guitarist Julyo.
    Studying and collaborating with the likes of Mike Mangini (Steve Vai, Extreme), Cindy Blackman (Carlos Santana, Lenny Kravitz) and Szalay Péter (Korai Öröm, ColorStar) made him a name stay in the guitar players community and with the release of “Guitar (2004 - 2014) LP“ (produced by the European Union ERDF fund) he was solidified as one of the most popular acts in the Mediterranean and East European scene.
    “Mediterráneo EP” would take the likes of his previous works and expand his style and venture off into the slots of creativity. The songs are about the environment and landscapes of the main port cities of the Mediterranean Sea: Scilla e Cariddi (Italy), Balad Al Unnâb (Algeria), Preveza (Greece) and Corniche (Egypt). The EP will be followed by an LP release during early 2016.
    Kicking off the album with “Scilla e Cariddi,” Julyo creates a very exotic atmosphere alternating Classical guitar melodies with Portuguese mandola haunting solos. What you'll notice immediately is the entrancing nature of the song. "Scilla e Cariddi" is named after the Straits between Reggio and Messina in Italy. The two places at the mouth of the ‘Strait of Messina’ were famous in ancient times for the difficulties that the sailors had to overcome when they came in that part of the sea. Scilla and Cariddi were two goddesses causing the whirlpools and the rough sea that killed the sailors in the ancient times.
    "Balad Al Unnâb (Jujubes City)" creates another dreamy atmosphere, opening with a Moroccan like beats on percussions. Soon enough, a menacing guitar arpeggio comes in and chill wave drums create a sense of melancholy. “Balad Al Unnâb” is named after Annaba, a city in the northeastern corner of Algeria near the Seybouse River. Most of the people call this city Balad Al Unnâb (“the Jujubes city”), because of the abundance of jujubes fruit in the area.
    You are then swept off your feet by one of the stronger songs on the album: "Preveza”. This song just completely takes you places. The fast plucking on Greek Bouzouki played by legendary Hungarian prog-rock virtuoso Szalay Péter at the beginning is a superb start and the addition of bachatón percussion is just incredible. With this piece, Julyo steps away from the chill-out atmosphere of the first two tracks and takes you away with a Greek Bouzouki - Classical Guitar duel. The music is inspired by Preveza (Greek: Πρέβεζα), a town in the region of Epirus, northwestern Greece, located at the mouth of the Ambracian Gulf. Is the native city of Odysseas Androutsos, a hero of the Greek War of Independence.
    With the next track "Corniche”, you'll immediately notice a more smooth side of Julyo’s playing style reminiscent of his studies and collaborations with Kazumi Watanabe and Armando Corsi (Paco de Lucia, Fabrizio de Andre). The dreamy chimes sounds at the beginning really set the mood for the whole piece. With this number, you could just as easily layout and sit out in the sun and dream about Mediterranean landscapes. The piece is about the Corniche (الكرنيش Al-Kurnīsh), a waterfront promenade corniche in Alexandria, Egypt, running along the Eastern Harbor.”

Track Name: Crêuza de mä - "Muletrack by the Sea" (Fabrizio De Andrè)
CREUZA DE MÄ

Umbre de muri muri de mainé
dunde ne vegnì duve l'è ch'ané
da 'n scitu duve a l'ûn-a a se mustra nûa
e a neutte a n'à puntou u cutellu ä gua
e a muntä l'àse gh'é restou Diu
u Diàu l'é in çë e u s'è gh'è faetu u nìu
ne sciurtìmmu da u mä pe sciugà e osse da u Dria
a a funtan-a di cumbi 'nta cä de pria.
E 'nt'a cä de pria chi ghe saià
int'à cä du Dria che u nu l'è mainà
gente de Lûgan facce da mandillä
qui che du luassu preferiscian l'ä
figge de famiggia udù de bun
che ti peu ammiàle senza u gundun.
E a 'ste panse veue cose che daià
cose da beive, cose da mangiä
frittûa de pigneu giancu de Purtufin
çervelle de bae 'nt'u meximu vin
lasagne da fiddià ai quattru tucchi
paciûgu in aegruduse de lévre de cuppi**.
E 'nt'a barca du vin ghe naveghiemu 'nsc'i scheuggi
emigranti du rìe cu'i cioi 'nt'i euggi
finché u matin crescià da puéilu rechéugge
frè di ganeuffeni e dè figge
bacan d'a corda marsa d'aegua e de sä
che a ne liga e a ne porta 'nte 'na creuza de mä.

Creuza*: Qui impropriamente tradotto mulattiera. In realtà la Creuza è nel genovesato una strada suburbana che scorre fra due muri che solitamente determinano i confini di proprietà.
Lévre de cuppi**: Gatto.
