Jovanotti Live at KUT Four Seasons Showcase
Until now, American audiences have had to make do with mere glimpses of the brilliant career of one of Italy’s most famous contemporary artists, the Tuscan singer and songwriter and rapper Lorenzo Cherubini, professionally known as Jovanotti. Over the past twenty years his recorded and live collaborations with Michael Franti, Ben Harper, The Beastie Boys, Juanes, Sergio Mendes, and Bono, among other well-known names, have occasionally caught the ear of the adventurous listener. Delivering lyrics in a half-sung, half-spoken style that pays homage to the Beats, Jovanotti uses the rhythm and the ricochet of consonants and catchy melodic hooks to create songs that are instantly accessible to an international audience.
