Cristiano Cosa, Kyoto, Proto, Rossana De Pace, Isobel Kara, Lit up Fuse, RicordaCassandra and Shabby are the eight finalists of SEI D’Autore. Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th (9 PM – free entrance) the atrium of the Castello Volante of Corigliano d’Otranto hosts the third edition of the contest dedicated to young Apulian singer-songwriters promoted by Coolclub‘s SEI festival. The project is intended to support new talent by giving the opportunity to eight under 30 artists (singers, composers and authors – in whole or in part – of the songs) to perform to conquer the stage of SEI, which during summer will offer a rich program of concerts and events around Salento. After an initial selection, the double date in Corigliano d’Otranto will designate a winner who will be included in the line up of the 18th edition of the festival characterized by the claim Perdersi per ritrovarsi. From 6:30 PM on the terraces of Nuvole, cocktail bar and bistro of the Castello Volante, it will be possible to taste an aperitif and appreciate the renewed menu proposed by chef Diletta Bagordo, sipping a drink from Michele Contini’s carefully chosen list.

Friday, June 28th(9 PM – free entrance) on the stage will alternate Cristiano Cosa, multi-instrumentalist from Taranto with an artistic path with a strong singer-songwriter imprint, contaminated by brit pop, rock and funk influences; Kyoto, a solo musical project by singer-songwriter, drummer, producer and performer Roberta Russo, which blends beatbox technique with dark and cinematic electronics; the singer-songwriter Proto studied singing and piano since childhood and in the following years also approached guitar, ukulele, bass, percussion and other instruments; Rossana De Pace, a voice rooted in the Mediterranean, combines pop art music with the lyrics of modern songwriting.

Saturday, June 28th
(9 PM – free entrance) before knowing the name of the winner, the second night will see the following confront each other Isobel Kara (Chiara Ritelli and Emanuele Balsamo), a musical and theatrical project rooted in classical, sacred and popular music reaching to the sounds of pop; Lit up Fuse, band mixes the raw directness of punk with the energetic drive of techno and the typical warmth of hip-hop samples; RememberCassandra (Alessio De Sangro) with sounds derived primarily from the European scene, ranging between electronic and the domestic and international alternative world; Shabby (Sabrina Cagnazzo), a singer-songwriter who offers songs (in English and Italian) that reflect her personal experiences and feelings, with the goal of making the listener feel understood and connected.
