Niccolò Fabi: 'A singer is not happy about popularity and autographs, but if people share emotions'

«In music I have always chosen to share even the difficult sensations, the changes, the seasons». Also the great pain for the disappearance of his daughter Olivia, in 2010: «Mourning often makes you aggressive and closes you off, I tried to do the opposite».

In an interview with Oggi, on newsstands starting tomorrow, Niccolò Fabi talks about his career, from his early days at «Il locale» behind Piazza Navona to the big concert at the Arena last October («Before singing, I chatted for a quarter now, as if to invite everyone to be comfortable, as if to say: let's talk for a moment because I have to see if I can do it first'), to the new album Less for less .

 !P!Today!IS!0050.2022!N!50 COVER VERGINIA OK!E!.pdf IN AFRICA WITH CUAMM - The singer-songwriter talks about his travels in Africa, which have often created the story of his songs. «They called me in 2009… I had never done a testimonial of anything and instead of lending me to take a picture, I asked them to take me with them to Uganda. From there I made 15 or 20 trips to Africa and visited ten different countries. I have the honor of being part of the Medici family with Africa Cuamm… Before, I had the “starlet” complex. For me what matters, in being close to certain realities, is not going there, taking a picture of myself, singing a song and showing that I am an artist sensitive to the poverty of the world. A singer is not happy when everything is resolved with a: 'and now let's face a song!', with popularity, an autograph'.

MUSIC TO DEFEAT THE MOURNING - And he explains: «In music I have always chosen to share even the difficult sensations, the changes, the seasons». Also the great pain for the disappearance of his daughter Olivia, in 2010: «Mourning often makes you aggressive and closes you off, I have tried to do the opposite. That historic moment of mine served to bring people closer to me, I simply invited friends to my room, as happens at fairs, because music is basically a fair. Here I am, today I'm making you the record that makes you dance and tomorrow the one that makes you cry. They entered my stand, my little shop and we shared that thing». And finally she confides: «Try to be a good father. This is the most important goal of my life.'
