Iconic Italian Musician CARMEN CONSOLI Returns to the United States

I. i. (November 10, 2019)
November Concert Dates of the Sicilian-born Singer-Songwriter in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco

Ms. Consoli is a remarkable combination of rocker and intellectual.” — The New York Times
 

Carmen Consoli is the most successful female singer-songwriter Italy has ever produced.  Throughout a 25 year career the musician has been defined by her unflinching emotional live performances of songs that examine broad themes of love, illness, solitude and friendship from a feminine — and feminist — perspective.  Her innovative mixture of Italian song with indie-rock influences, bossa nova rhythms, traditional Sicilian musical styles and jazz and blues-inspired riffs have engendered a generation defining sound unique to the Italian music scene.  

Consoli’s November tour marks the Sicilian-born artist's return to the States after nearly a decade.  The North American dates are part of Consoli's Eco Di Sirene (Echo of Sirens) world tour which will touch down in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco following stopovers in Havana, Cuba and Santiago, Chile.  Eco Di Sirene is Consoli’s critically acclaimed 2018 live album and Italian concert tour project in which the “Cantantessa” performs from her career-spanning repertoire accompanied by a female string duo consisting of violinist Emilia Belfiore and cellist Claudia della Gatta.  This female trio forming a metaphor the Trinacria symbol of the Sicilian Island.  

Highlights from Carmen Consoli’s remarkable career include being the first female artist to perform at Rome’s Olympic Stadium, the only Italian artist invited to take part in a Bob Marley tribute event held in Ethiopia and headlining in New York City’s Central Park.  More recently Consoli has been Concert Master of Puglia’s “La Notte della Tatanta” and appeared on Italy’s Sanremo Festival.  Consoli has been awarded Italy's Tenco Prize as well as Davide di Donatello and Nastri d’argento awards.  She has also served as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador and is an Amnesty International Italy prize winner.  Additionally Carmen Consoli has been bestowed the honor of Knight of The Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
