IL SOGNO (THE DREAM) was born as a special project of Nuove Tribù Zulu. The book with the CD “Il Sogno” – Sounds and Visions of Love and Struggle”, was published by Editrice Zona and presented for the first time in Turin at the International Book Fair in 2007, with the aim of enhancing and creating poetry through music.
The line-up composed by Andrea Camerini on voice and silver flute and Paolo Camerini on double bass, bass and loop, defines an original, lean and essential sound, in which the loops created with bass and voice, enrich the melodic and harmonic sound texture of the compositions.
Today IL SOGNO continues its artistic research in the territory of musical contamination where ancestral mystery sounds blend with voyages between darkness and light, narrative plans suspended between wakefulness, sleep and deep dreaming; transcendental states of consciousness, barriers and patterns to break with vocal and instrumental incursions and improvisations.
A different dimension in which everything is possible: rules are evaded and new creative forms and visions find their place. The dream as a reality in which the deepest aspirations of the self emerge through signs and symbols in all their urgency. Singing, music and poetry thus become a total artistic act and an expression of the soul.
Over the years the group has performed in festivals and theaters such as the Teatro Pavone in Perugia, as part of “EstArte 2017, estate in Pomezia” in Torvaianica (Rome), in the Church of Santa Maria Tricalle in Chieti for the festival “Infinito Presente 2018”, at the festival “Suggestiva, musica pura per luoghi straordinari” at the Auditorium di Mecenate in Rome, organized by MArteLive in December 2019.
Il SOGNO is working on the realization of the new album “Kavi: the Poet is Alive”, out in 2021.
The brothers Andrea and Paolo Camerini have always played together. Co-founders of the Cyclone psycho-rock project in the late 80s, in the early 90s they created Nuove Tribù Zulu, a pioneer group of the encounter between cultures, starting to experiment and mix rock, jazz, pop, punk, ska, gypsy, taranta and world sounds.
In 2007 NOW, Nomadic Orchestra of the World was born in India: a fascinating meeting with the musicians of the nomadic tribes of Rajasthan that brings the group on tour in Italy and India in 2009 and 2010. This project releases two albums that mark the artistic bridge between West and East. “NOW” receives the Sounds of Border Award organized by Amnesty International for the best live cultural integration activity, within the MEI, meeting of independent labels that takes place in Faenza.

The enclosed CD is an evocative and original journey in an unprecedented and eclectic threesome with Paolo Camerini on double bass, Roberto Berini on drums and Andrea Camerini on vocals.
