ITALY?S NUMBER ONE RECORDING ARTIST REKINDLES LATIN CONNECTION IN WEST COAST DEBUT
JOVANOTTI
TO HEADLINE CONCERTS AT STERN GROVE AND SANTA MONICA PIER

Special Warm Up Show at Legendary Viper Room
Guest Openers will Include Ana Tijoux and Bomba Estereo


Chart-topping Tuscan singer, songwriter and rapper JOVANOTTI (a/k/a Lorenzo Cherubini) will make his West Coast debut with two festival concerts at the Santa Monica Pier on July 22 and at San Francisco?s Stern Grove on July 25.  He will also perform an exclusive club show at Hollywood?s Viper Room on July 21.  Chilean buzz act Ana Tijoux will open both LA dates and Colombia?s Bomba Estereo join Jovanotti at Stern Grove.

Italy?s iconic pop star took an unusual route into the US market.  Rather than play the obligatory round of venues typical for a major Italian language artist, Jovanotti, an unabashed fan of New York City, took up residency in the Village and spent the summer of 2009 working out a mostly US-based band in the downtown club scene.  The national media attention generated by Jovanotti's string of 16 sold out dates spurred the demand for a wider North American tour, the first leg of which resulted in a run of eight more sold out dates through the Northeast and Midwest in April and May 2010.   An adept stadium and arena headliner in Europe, Jovanotti's trans-Atlantic fans were treated to the rare club set by a superstar artist in some of the most renowned venues for rock and world music on the North American continent.  

Also unusual is Jovanotti?s relationship to the Latin music world.  Unlike compatriots Laura Pausini and Eros Ramazotti, the Rome-born artist found success in the mid-nineties in Latin America with Italian language hits ?Serenata Rap?, ?L'Ombelico Del Mondo?, and ?Penso Positivo?.  His fascination with Latin music and rhythms has led Jovanotti to collaborations with Jorge Drexler, Jarabe de Palo and, more recently, with Sergio Mendes.  He performed a warmly-received set at Havana?s ?Paz sin fronteras? concert in September 2009 as Juanes? special guest.

Jovanotti?s July visit to the US will also bring him to New York?s Central Park SummerStage on July 31 to headline a concert with openers Natalia Lafourcade and Los Amigos Invisibles.

Jovanotti?s first American release ?OYEAH?, is a double album collection featuring all new live versions of original repertoire drawn from his generation-long career plus 3 unreleased studio takes on classic Italian songs re-interpreted for today's international music market.  ?OYEAH? was released on the Verve Forecast label in December 2009.

Jovanotti backgrounder:

Until now, American audiences have had to make do with mere glimpses of the brilliant career of one of Italy?s most famous contemporary artists, the Tuscan singer and songwriter Lorenzo Cherubini, professionally known as Jovanotti.  Over the past twenty years his recorded and live collaborations with Michael Franti, Ben Harper, Juanes, The Beastie Boys, Carlinhos Brown, Sergio Mendes, and Bono, among other well-known names, have occasionally caught the ear of the adventurous listener.  Delivering lyrics in a half-sung, half-spoken style that has something esthetically in common with a downtown reading by a Beat poet, Jovanotti uses the rhythm and the ricochet of consonants and catchy melodic hooks to create songs that are instantly accessible to an international audience.

Jovanotti launched his musical career in the late ?eighties from a dj stint on Milan?s popular Radio Deejay network to become a commercially successful, if not critically regarded, pop rapper/dj.  Throughout the ?nineties, Jovanotti steeped himself in international influences which, not unlike Manu Chao, he synthesized into a uniquely modern version of the traditional Italian singer-songwriter.  As his music evolved, so did his lyrics, as he began to use his songs to address philosophical, religious and political issues.

Jovanotti was the first Italian to work for MTV.  The term ?world beat?, used to describe foreign language music with a groove, had just come into vogue as the singer took to the role of Fellini-esque master of ceremonies on the early 1990?s MTV program ?Earth to MTV?.

His public commentary on politics became more pronounced on his sixth studio album Lorenzo 1994 and both his critical and international acclaim increased.  The song ?Serenata Rap? was the most frequently shown video on MTV Latino in that year and Jovanotti made two live concert appearances on MTV Europe. In the late ?nineties, Jovanotti made a direct leap into the arena of world music, recording a portion of his seventh album Lorenzo 1997 in South Africa with local musicians and guest stars.  He also released a greatest hits album in Spanish with lyrics translated by Jarabe de Palo and Oscar-winner Jorge Drexler.

Jovanotti has recorded eleven studio albums; the four most recent releases have all gone to number one in Italy.  His most recent studio album, the award-winning, multi-platinum Safari (March 2008) was recorded in Los Angeles, Tuscany, Rio de Janeiro, Hannover, Germany and Milan.  The CD has been certified as Italy?s #1 selling album of 2008 with more than 600,000 copies sold.  The name Jovanotti is taken from the plural form of the Italian word giovanotto (?young man?).  Lorenzo had once used the Italian-American ?Joe Vanotti? as an artistic name before morphing it into his famous moniker ?Jovanotti?. The spelling of Jovanotti is anglicized, as the letter J is not used in Italian.
