[Xenam] 0010 - Totobito Group - Girotondo nel Mio Cuore
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:24:45 PM »


Hello everyone!
Antonio Lauritano is an author I have never heard before listening to this LP, anyway according to the SIAE database 389 tracks are credited to him.

"Girotondo nel Mio Cuore" is a very enjoyable album, the compositions are intense and heartfelt, the music is melodic and rhytmic. Overall it is a smooth and pleasant listen.
It came as a surprise for me, with the right approach I was able to enjoy it more and more.

The first side reveals the intimate nature of Lauritano's compositions.
There are very nice tracks like "Cambio Vita" and "Vita Rallentata", in the balance between melodic Italian music and synth-pop, the solar "Drummista", the dreamy atmospheres of "Il Mio Cuore" and the emotional crescendo of "Fuga in Bolero".

The tracks on side two are various and funny, apart from "Tunnel" which is complex and dramatic.

Like the cover says, "Gira che ti rigira nel mio cuore c'Ŕ musica e spontaneitÓ" (it goes round and round, in my heart there is music and spontaneity).
Enjoy!

[Xenam] 0010 - Girotondo nel Mio Cuore - Totobito Group - music by Totobito (Antonio Lauritano) (1990)

Thank you Rocco. This is such a rarity, and an absolute news to me. Never heard anything from Xenam.
Based on my mood this morning, side B is my favorite. "Dintro" and "Mambos".

What a surprise this is!
And the presentation is so thoughtful and nice. I really enjoyed reading the exciting story behind the record.
You should really make a library music magazine!

Thank you very much, Rocco. :)
