It is the smile that is the key for reading the musical universe of Beppe Gambetta. An open and disarming smile that is also the contagious and irresistible smile of a person who invites you to a musical journey with a light heart and curiosity. The destination, as for any traveller, is not totally defined because it is beautiful to find ourselves where we never would expect to be. With the horizon's line as a challenge and attraction, Beppe is continually composing his personal mosaic of sounds and tastes. From his unique background as an Italian musician in love with both American roots music as well as the music of his native country, Beppe has travelled the world to dazzle and charm music enthusiasts everywhere.

In a world dominated by the trends and logic of the market Gambetta's playing and singing stand out for their intimate emotions, communication, tone, sobriety and humour. An inspired music that modestly avoids relying solely on technical bravado, but also reveals the innermost feelings of a playful mind that is always exploring and innovating while staying firmly rooted in tradition.

With America in his heart and his roots in the sun and the olive trees of the Mediterranean sea, he naturally and seamlessly bridges the shores of the two continents, creating a musical fusion where American roots music and Ligurian tradition, emigration songs and folk ballads, steel string guitars and vintage harp guitars not only co-exist but interact, weaving a deep dialogue.

Beppe has just released a new cd, The American Album, a tribute to the great American Roots with a different vision.
