Belmont Library presents a live concert featuring a very special Italian performer, Michela Musolino. Please come and join us on Friday, November 22nd from 3: 00 pm -5:00pm. at the Belmont Library. Come join for an enticing evening of Sicilian and Southern Italian songs by Musolino Michela!
Michela Musolino, American-born-and-raised, has been carrying on a love-affair with Sicilian music. It's no secret, though. Known for her fiery and passionate interpretations of both traditional and contemporary Sicilian folk and roots music, Musolino turns world fusion songs into timeless pieces and infuses her vocals with the emotions of life. Musolino enchants with a voice that seems to float between the ages. Peter Covino, Pen America prize-winning poet and the University of Rhode Island Assistant Professor of English said about Musolino, 'Can you imagine the wild soulfulness of Tina Turner and the earthy yet ethereal voice of Neapolitan songstress Teresa De Sio combined? Well imagine that; then think even more vibrancy, more urbanity, in songs that somehow also feel impossibly intimate... No wonder Michela Musolino has such a devoted underground following; full divahood seems scarily within reach.'
