Lo ZOO di Berlino is an Italian trio, with keyboards, Fender Rhodes, bass and drums, mixing tre great tradition of Italian progressive rock and jazz rock with contemporary sounds, post-rock and soundtrack music. Their latest album, “Resistenze Elettriche” was recorded with Patrizio Fariselli, keyboard player of the most legendary Italian band ever, Area – International POPular Group, commonly known as Area, led by the incredible singer Demetrio Stratos.
The album includes three radical improvisations over classical Area themes, “Elefante Bianco”, “Arbeit Macht Frei” and “L’Internazionale”, the world famous workers’ hymn, together with unreleased songs and an unique version of “Bella Ciao”, the tune of the Italian partisans that has been turnerd into a spy story abstract funk.
The band is also active as production unit and the two founders, the brothers Andrea and Diego Pettinelli have worked and gained respect from artists like Gianni Nocenzi, Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, Balletto di Bronzo and Italian medias consider Lo ZOO di Berlino as the direct heir of that great season.
The band is featured on the number 100 of international magazine Prog with a review and on the covermount CD with “Bella Ciao”.
Their sound is described ad a “Lively sequence of loose – limbed, improv – heavy excursions, these richly dramatic pieces sometimes evoke Soft Machine circa Seven, as they burn through fiery riffs with rhapsodic passion”. These words come from Sid Smith, jazz rock expert and author of King Crimson’s official biography “In The Court Of King Crimson”.
