In Harmony: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Roberto Cassani...
Updated: Jul 7, 2021
For the latest podcast Ali spoke to musician Roberto Cassani about his sensational album Ansema We Stand, his incredible life in music, and how he came to settle in rural Perthshire.
The two also discuss how the young Roberto discovered the double bass was 'his instrument', how he became the darling of Italy's musical royalty, the importance of his Lombardy childhood to this album, the positive consequences of travel, writing and recording the album against the constraints of COVID, his love of Scottish music and musicians, and and a whole lot more.
Ansema We Stand is undoubtedly one of the best records of 2021 and it was fascinating to hear Roberto's journey to making it, and the stories behind it.
You can find out more about Roberto's music, and get your own copy of Ansema We Stand, from his own website - robertocassani.com.
