Llargo, led by Italian songwriter, guitarist and producer Christian De Cicco, is an open ensemble that explores a common ground through downtempo/ambient reminiscences, jazz vocals, electronic beats and folk guitars. Influenced by the work of Bon Iver, The Cinematic Orchestra and Massive Attack, he manages to create dreamy and captivating soundscapes through his music.
Christian says: “I’m always searching for new ways into music and sounds, always pushing outside of my musical comfort zone.”
Recorded in London and Milan, alongside musicians Ivan Segreto (synths, arrangement, programming), Lele Garro (double bass), Evita Polidoro (acoustic drums), and featured artist Heidi Vogel (The Cinematic Orchestra) on vocals.
“I wrote ‘Clouds’ with Heidi’s voice in my mind. I’m a huge fan of the tone of her voice and I thought she would have been perfect for this song as her voice would blend really well with all the other instruments. We then met and recorded her vocals in London. What a magical experience!”
