fabrizio-de-andréThe great Genoese singer-songwriter Fabrizio De André, Faber, to his friends, loved to travel. Especially in the latter part of his record production, from “Creuza de Mä” to “Nuvole,” the musical influences from distant countries are so evident that these records can be categorized as well-executed examples of world music. Prior to “Nuvole,” De André purchased a sailboat (which he christened Jamin-a, after the 1984 song contained in Creuza de Mä) and embarked on a two-and-a-half month sail around the islands and coast of Greece with singer-songwriter and friend Mauro Pagani. This photo shows him at the helm in 1986.
