Mariano Schiavolini

“Musica for Africa”

Italian composer and producer, Mariano Schiavolini is releasing the newest material from a global collaboration that began in Johannesburg, SA nearly two years ago.

Originally titled “Musica for Africa”, and featuring elements of gospel, soul, jazz and progressive, the project saw Schiavolini recording with the world-renowned Soweto Gospel Choir and a host of talented musicians from all around the world.

On September 29th two new singles featuring soul sensation, Clayton Bryant (in collaboration with the Soweto Gospel Choir) will be available in online stores.

Known as “The voice behind the legends”, Clayton has collaborated with an impressive roster of artists including: Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Sting, John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Michael Jackson, & Whitney Houston.

The Soweto Gospel Choir has worked with greats such as Queen, Bono, U2, Eurythmics, Celine Dion, Peter Gabriel, Amy Winheouse, Jimmy Cliff, Diana Ross, Josh Groban, Aretha Franklin, Harlem Gospel Choir, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Robert Plant, Eddie Grant, Wyclef Jean and many others.

Video for “Where Will It End”:

“Where Will it End” is protest for peace in the face of reoccurring violence throughout the world. It features Clayton Bryant delivering a passionate vocal performance, while the Soweto Gospel Choir provides a magnificent harmonic backdrop in Zulu. 

The song was written in response to a number of violent acts and massacres that have been occurring in recent years. In 2015, 148 people, almost all students, were gunned down at Garissa University in Kenya. Thirty five Coptic Christians were killed on a bus in Egypt in May, including many children. Massacres occurred in Paris, Nice, and Manchester, not to mention devastating acts of violence throughout the world. Just days ago, dozens of people were gunned down in Las Vegas, proving to be one of the most brutal acts to date. This song calls on young militants and killers of all kinds to reflect on why they kill innocent people, without cause or reason. An excerpt from the lyrics says it plainly: “tell me how you can hate me when you don’t know me”.

A music video was filmed, on location, in New York City. It starts at Ground Zero to highlight a sense of rebirth and hope for the future. The song is a hymn for peace, respect and equality among all people and creeds.
