The internationally acclaimed singer, Patrizio Buanne, arrived in South Africa this morning.
This is the tenth time that he visits our country. Boasting multiple platinum record sales, he is known for his unique voice and energetic performances. It comes as no surprise that this one of a kind singer has an enormous fan base worldwide and is known as South Africa’s favourite Naples pop crooner.
The acclaimed heart throb, known as the Italian Tom Jones, will be in South Africa for three weeks to promote his latest CD, Viva La Dolce Vita and to perform at Classics is Groot on 30 July in Pretoria. This show is produced by Coleske Artists, the guys behind the successful Afrikaans is Groot shows, and will focus on classic hits but with a modern twist. Patrizio will perform along other favourites like Jannie Moolman and Corlea Botha. Tickets for this show can be purchased via www.ticketpros.co.za
The album is a celebration of the ten years since he released his first international album, The Italian.
Viva La Dolce Vita is his forth international album, and like all the others, has already reached platinum status abroad. This is remarkable, seeing that music sales are very low worldwide. Well known Italian and English favourites like ‘Surrender’, ‘Al Di La’, Il Mondo, Mambo Italiano, Un Angelo and some new songs can be heard on the CD.
The album releases in South Africa as a double CD. Hits with local singers like Liefling’ with Steve Hofmeyr, ‘Always on my mind’ with Juanita du Plessis and ‘Ek mis jou elke dag ‘n bietjie meer’ with Corlea Botha can be heard on this special CD.
According to him Viva La Dolce Vita is the perfect name for this album because it personifies his outlook on life. “La dolce vita means ‘to live the sweet life’. And that is my life. Not that my life is perfect, there is a lot of sorrow around us, worldwide. But I prefer to have a positive outlook on life, and that is what it is all about.”
“Romance is about following your heart without thinking about it too much. What’s in your heart needs to come out of your mouth, and that’s what I want to sing about.” – Patrizio Buanne
