Multilingual songwriter and artist Piers Faccini has created a new Mediterranean hybrid music, drawing on his mixed Italian, French, English, and Roma background, with influences from north Africa and elsewhere. Faccini blends these strands into songs that are expressive, pensive, and joyful. His singing is elegant and a bit raw--well suited to this performance with percussionist Simone Prattico. He performs live in the WNYC studio and talks with David Garland about his music, his painting, how those endeavors connect, his European perspective, and much more.
