DIVAE PROJECT-PROG WILL NEVER DIE feat Vittorio e Gianni Nocenzi

DIVAE PROJECT-PROG WILL NEVER DIE feat Vittorio e Gianni Nocenzi
After the acclaim obtained by the Mini Lp "Stratosferico" (published in June 2021) Universal “Prog will never die”, manifesto of a music without boundaries and out of time.

The six songs, for a total of 43 minutes, explore the sound codes born in the late 60s, when non-classical music, thanks too to the classical, it started to “complicate”. Six stories suspended between rock and experimentalisms, capable of connecting prog, hard-rock, psychedelia, jazz-rock, tango, classical music, acoustic instruments ed electric, vintage and modern sounds, melody and never static rhythms.

The project was born from the union between Guido Bellachioma (critic musical, director of the magazine «Prog Italia» and del Progressively Festival since 1993) and by Davide Pistoni (multi-instrumentalist and composer of superfine talent), who together have developed ideas to propose compositions that mix borderline music without too many blinders. In the Divae Projects there they are some of the best Italian musicians, as well as high-level guests absolute like the Nocenzi brothers (Banco del Mutuo Soccorso). The Divae Project are the heirs of the Roman Divae, which in 1995 with the album "Determination" were one of the most appreciated realities of the post-70s Italian prog scene.

The cover is a painting by Lorenza “Pigliamosche” Ricci, one of new emerging figures of international comics.

Original & Instrumental side

Totally instrumental, it wants to tell the journey from the sixties to today of what has been termed progressive rock, which began as mestizo music, therefore of strong contamination between genres, perhaps the first crossover accomplished. We start with the ethnic impulses of origin Latin to go to the lesson of the electrification of jazz, yes contaminates with funk, finally the symphonic-progressive vision developed into an accentuated melody, after a romantic one piano introduction.

Tango zoppo

It combines popular music, such as tango, using the accordion, and the rock one, in particular the hard guitar. The fact of being odd (11/4), therefore not very reassuring, gives it an aspect obscure that usually the melodies coming from the tango do not have.

È pericoloso giocare con il fuoco

When electrified jazz meets rock and funky. The song, played live, it explores the English-speaking offerings of the early 70s with the rock approach (the guitar certainly has Allan in its DNA Holdsworth and Scott Henderson) and psych-prog (see the acid solo by synthesizer, which no one would expect in such a groove funky). The power energy of the execution is a further touch of contamination to open up to a true fusion of the elements stylistic.

Prog Will Never Die

After having touched the station of ethnic and jazz culture on the journey- rock-funky we arrive at the summa of progressive rock, or the symphonic, romantic and melodic moment, without dampening the power approach. A mini-suite that does not force the technical aspect- executive and odd times.

BMS side

Homage, in an original key with well-finished but spontaneous arrangements at the same time, the Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, one of the icons absolute rock of the 70s, not only Italian. It does so with three songs quite different from each other: a chiaroscuro pearl from “I was born free” (“The thin city”, signed by Gianni Nocenzi), which a he will be 50 in December; an absolute classic and heartbreaking in its own right romance from “Darwin!” of 1972 (“750,000 years ago… love?”, by Vittorio Nocenzi); a forgotten song, very current, poignant and poetically angry in the harsh denunciation against the war, taken from the underrated “Il 13”, 1994 album (“Bambino”, focused on victims of bombing in Sarajevo, including very many children. The music is by Vittorio). The lyrics are of the unforgettable Francesco Di Giacomo; through them yes also sees the stylistic evolution of this great “player of words”, both as a vocal performer and as a writer. The extraordinary nature of "The thin city" and "Bambino" lies in the fact which for the first time the two Nocenzi brothers play on a disc le songs of Banco del Mutuo Soccorso… that is not the work of BMS!

La città sottile

Gianni connects the first part to the third, both electric with one splendid grand piano, recorded at the Forward Studio of Grottaferrata, one of the best for this instrument.


Vittorio has created a sort of sound preface with the digital piano, preparing a great sound, to stand out from what Gianni did on acoustic. He found a song that, despite both of him, she had almost forgotten… still understanding of more than what was written 30 years ago.

750.000 anni fa… l’amore

This extraordinary moment of poignant and painful romanticism sees the presence of the classical violinist Natalia Dudynska, hailing from Ukraine, which emphasizes both parts more rarefied (only violin, piano and voice) than 7/8 in the more section rock, where the rest of the group enters. It is one of the epic ballads of the progressive rock ever, few can afford to interpret it.
