Everybody knows ‘Volare’, but what about ‘Soldi’?
The aim of this course is to give students a wider knowledge of modern Italian music, which is also an engaging way to follow the changes of Italian society. Throughout the 8 classes you will listen to a number of popular Italian artists and music genres as well as established musicians/bands of the last 20 years that are lesser known abroad. The teacher – an Italian professional singer-songwriter and music nerd – will give information about the socio-cultural context and on the careers of such musicians, go through some of the most significant lyrics and provide the students with critical articles/reviews/interviews from Italian music magazines.
For participation in this course a minimum level of B1 is required.
