Sacri Cuori - Douglas & Dawn

The first album by Sacri Cuori. led by two Italians: guitarist/composer Antonio Gramentieri and the percussionist/drummer Diego Sapignoli. Both are from the verdant hills of Emilia Romagna, not far from the hometowns of both Fellini and Mussolini. Light and dark. Featuring the likes of James Chance, Marc Ribot, Howe Gelb and members of Calexico

SACRI CUORI strain folk, blues and psychedelia through a cinematic cheesecloth clogged with the bits and pieces of an emerging international gestalt. Where Nino Rota ends and John Lee Hooker begins is anyone's guess. SACRI CUORI have multiple credits involving studio recordings, live concerts, art installations and soundtracks for both TV and film. They have played and recorded with Dan Stuart and JD Foster, Australian singer/songwriter Hugo Race as members of The Fatalists.

SACRI CUORi have shared the stage and occasionally recorded with many friends, including Dan Stuart, Howe Gelb and Giant Sand, Marc Ribot, Steve Wynn, Robyn Hitchcock, Isobel Campbell, Richard Buckner, Chris Cacavas, Bill Elm of Friends of Dean Martinez, Vinicio Capossela and dozens more. DOUGLAS and DAWN is titled after a hallucinatory sunrise on the Mexican border. Relocating to Tucson, they enlarged the ensemble to include John Convertino and Jakob Valenzuela of Calexico, Howe Gelb, Thoger Lund, Massimo Sbaragli amongst others, and recorded at Wavelab Studio. The result was handed over to John Parish who mixed it in Bristol, England for some truly transglobal beauty.
