Cesare BasileWere announced the finalists of the various sections of the Targa Tenco 2015. The news was reported in recent days in all the media and, in general, the expectations have not been betrayed, because many of the best Italian artists were selected for the finals nominations. This year’s edition will be dedicated to Francesco Guccini – winner of the Tenco Prize in 1975 – and, for the occasion, many artists (including Roberto Vecchioni, John De Leo, Bobo Rondelli and Carmen Consoli) will play some songs from his repertoire. The Targhe Tenco, instead, will be awarded during the three nights of the event, which will take place, as of tradition, at the Ariston Theatre in Sanremo October 22 to 24. The finalists for the Targa “Album of the Year”, reserved for songwriters, are: Paolo Benvegnù, with the album “Earth Hotel”; Carmen Consoli, with “The habit of return”; Fabi Silvestri Gazzé, with “The master of the feast”; Mauro Ermanno Giovanardi, with “My Style”; Iosonouncane, with “Die”; Max Manfredi, with “Dremong”. As for the section that interests us more specifically, or the one for “Album in dialect”, the finalists are some of the most original interpreters of popular repertoires, as well as often the authors of many of the songs in the album in question: Caesar Basile, with “You take the love you want and do not ask again” (remember that in 2013 the Sicilian singer refused the Targa for best album in dialect for dissent against SIAE); Alessio Bondi, with “Sfardo”; Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, with “Forty” (the album that celebrates forty years of the ensemble of Salento, which has been talked in this section); Enzo Gragnaniello, with “Mysteriously”; Giuseppe Moffa, with “Terribly old-fashioned” (Moffa, multi-instrumentalist, researcher and author, has been among the most appreciated by the critics for the work he has done in recent years, both as a soloist and with his band of bagpipes Zampognorchestra); Salvo Ruolo, with “Canciari patruni ’un è l’bittà”.
