Corey Harris

Corey Harris
Embodies & transcends blues tradition
“Magnificent. Harris is as powerful a vocalist as he is a string-bender, capable of varying his deep, rich voice from wind-through-the-treetops sighs to thunderclap howls to beautifully controlled crescendos.” – Chicago Tribune

Rose Tatuata
Sicilian roots music
“Imagine the wild soulfulness of Tina Turner and the earthy yet ethereal voice of Neapolitan songstress Teresa De Sio combined, then think even more vibrancy, more urbanity, in songs that somehow also feel impossibly intimate. No wonder Michela Musolino has such a devoted underground following!” – Peter Covino
