Mexico City (EFE).- The Italian group Il Volo arrives in Mexico, where it has its most loyal audience, to offer its first tour after the covid-19 pandemic, in which it will honor artists who sing of love, such as José José, Luis Miguel or Julio Iglesias.
“We are all in love and we can dedicate a love song to the people we love,” Gianluca Ginoble said in an interview with EFE.
Both Ginoble and his other two companions, Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone, agreed that his return to Latin America after several years could not be otherwise than with romantic themes.
In addition, they said they were followers of the artists they cover on this album, such as Luis Miguel, José José or Ricardo Montaner, whom they called their “greatest idols”.
“That’s why we decided to include more romantic versions of these artists, sing them with our voices, bring this style also to young people who sometimes forget that love is a very important feeling,” said Ginoble.
Voices that transcend generations
In “Tres voces un alma” the renowned trio of tenors of the genre called “classical crossover” contains great classics of romantic ballads that have transcended generations.
It recovers hits from the collective memory of the contemporary adult public, but also looking for emerging generations.
It is, they said, the legacy of great Ibero-American composers and performers, from Julio Iglesias, Roberto Carlos, Luis Miguel, José José, Juan Carlos Calderón, and Alejandro Jaén, among others, to Carlos Rivera and Leonel García, passing through the legendary José Alfredo Jimenez.
“The idea was to bring our culture and the traditions of our country. Latin America has always had a special place in our hearts, and with this album we wanted to give away the culture of Latin America – fused with the Italian, in its way of covering”, said Boschetto.
Ginoble went on to say that the singing of the artists they honor on their album “should come back.”
And although they would like to win over a young audience, among which they already have numerous followers, Boschetto opined that if someone follows them, it must be because they really like Il Volo.
“Between followers and artist a synergy is created, a connection that there is no way to explain,” he shared.
“We want that, if someone has to follow us, it is because they really like what we do. (His listeners) They can be closed on our music and they can be opened with our music,” he added.
Il Volo in Mexico
For more than a decade, when Il Volo was born, Latin American fans have been the most dedicated to them, especially in Mexico, where they will have three concert dates, the “shows” with the largest capacity of the entire tour.
Although there are already hundreds of concerts that they have to their credit, each one is special, they confessed.
“For a singer every occasion is different, the way you feel on stage. Every night is an inspiration, you can create a direct contact with the public. It is an emotion to return after four years, after the pandemic, for us it is the best way to express our emotions and everything we have inside. It’s a gift to us too,” Ginoble finished.
