One of the Italian music icons, an unique and unmistakable voice - Anna Oxa performed at the prestigous St. Michael's Fortress' stage this summer!
Italian singer was able to forsee the changes in music by proposing ethnic, living, human and industrial scents in own arrangements that have characterized them as urban sounds. Anna Oxa, magnetic queen of voice and authentic experimentation, in 2006 brought to the Sanremo Festival a song Processo a me stessa. A song combines an orchestration of violins and various strings with ethnic sounds of the rhythmic part and creates a tense emotional balance exploiting sonorities that today critics and music classifiers define as urban or world music.
Oxa has pursued this drive for sound experimentation even in later work. These tendencies has been brought to the maximum by her 2010 album Proxima. It was none other than the prelude to the musical gem L’America non c’è, written by Oxa herself. The intrinsically spiritual-philosophical verses are combined with an arrangements focused on the rhythmic part of the orchestration that furthers in depth by Oxa's vocal always capable of bringing new dimensions.
