Guano Padano, composed of Alessandro “Asso” Stefana (guitarist and involved in collaborations with Vinicio Capossela and P.J. Harvey), Zeno De Rossi (drummer who collaborated with Vinicio Capossela) and Danilo Gallo(bass), formed in 2007. The group’s music gets close to the timeless melodies of Morricone’s soundtracks and adds jazz, folk, and psychedelic harmonies.
Guano Padano’s most recent project is Americana, published in 2014 by Ponderosa Music & Art.
Americana is the third artistic effort by Guano Padano and it’s not only a new record but also a project, a very peculiar concept album, deep and important. The title draws inspiration from the Eighties novel Americana, a collection of a few American writers translated in Italian.
