Biography: Angelo Cavallo played guitar while very young. Since 1976, underage, he played in live festivals, opening concerts for important Italian progressive bands, like the Area with Demetrio Stratos, Napoli Centrale, James Senese, Moni Ovadia and Il Canzoniere del Lazio.
His due for call-up will change everything. The sea and the jobs at the sea would replace his passion for singing, for the guitar and for musical composition. In 1990 he teached at the Chamber of Commerce in training courses about tourism, then he created several companies: the Blue Animation Team (animation and shows), Suoni dal Mondo (live management of World Music) and Voce del Gargano (record label). In his city, Foggia, he opened a live club (the Nessun Dorma) in '92 and then a literary café (the Caffé del Bando) in 2002. After, he wrote nine books distributed by Feltrinelli, worked with some artists from Naples (Eugenio Bennato) and Puglia (Matteo Salvatore), with whom he shared 20 long years of work and sincere friendship. After his storyteller friend’s death in 2005, Angelo dedicated to him a biography and the award “Premio Matteo Salvatore”, held for various years in Foggia, which also included Club Tenco and Rai Trade as partners. With the last one, Angelo produced a live CD in 2011. He’s been also active for theater, he produced and created some shows: Antonio Albanese performed the first plays with his texts; in 2013 he wrote with Sergio Rubini the play "Di fame, di denaro, di passione”. In 2015 he retired from the scenes for personal reasons, but thanks to providence, in 2018 he came back, realizing that a guitar could let him spread simple and direct emotions to an audience. Hence the need for making an album, the first record of his life, as coming back from another world.
