ZAPPA ZIPPA ZUPPA ZEPPA!

 

ZAPPA ZIPPA ZUPPA ZEPPA! has born directly as a multimedia project, as the CD and the DVD must be seen as a whole thing. Thanks to a wider musical vision, and to a variety of sources of inspiration, past and present of the band find a new path for convergence and continuity. You start with the baroque a cappella doggerel “Superpezzi” and end up with the reissue of King Crimson’s “Larks’ Tongues in Aspic – part 1”, which is part of the DVD. A continue astonishment that grows up track by track, video by video.
