Marco Ruggiero pumps your veins full of good vibes with ‘Angioletto particolare’
The last year and a half have been difficult for a lot of people and, for many, the struggle continues. Marco Ruggiero is here to offer a little hope in this difficult time with his single ‘Angioletto particolare’. With a flow of soft rock, he brings a beautiful message and vibe to your ears while painting a picture of delicate angels all around us.
Drawing on years of experience, Ruggiero creates soulful music that sticks with you for long after the sound has faded. This release aims to bring hope and a sense of confidence in life to listeners.
‘Angioletto particolare’ bubbles to life and takes you along for the ride from the first second of the track. There is such a bright energy to the music that it lifts your spirits and fills you with good vibes without you even realizing. The initial bubble of sound relaxes for a smoother melodic flow that is utterly beautiful. The soft rock flow comes through in the guitar that soars in the background while the keys shine with a neon light. As you tap your toes to the beat and sway to the rhythm, your spirit will feel full of light and happiness. When the music sinks for a soft moment, you can’t help but smile and relax into the sound before you fly with the guitar.
Weaving between the neon lights of the melody is Ruggiero’s vocals. While the lyrics are in Italian, the message of the song shine through his performance. There is a rough edge to his vocals that brings a touch of Eros Ramazzotti only to be eclipsed by the smoothness that is purely Ruggiero. As you fall into the Italian lyrics, his performance brings a shining light of hope and good vibes to your soul. Even if you don’t know the language, you are going to feel the need to sing along.
Marco Ruggiero pumps your veins full of good vibes that put a smile on your face and have you relaxing into the neon lights of ‘Angioletto particolare’. The melody is captivating as it spills across dark streets to light a path to good vibes. While the vocals are in Italian, you will feel the urge to sing along and feel the positivity of the track flow into you.
-The Other Side Reviews-
Marco Ruggiero, geboren in België op 16 maart 1970, leerde als kind gitaar spelen en gezien zijn Italiaanse afkomst zong hij eerst traditionele Italiaanse en typische Napolitaanse folk met liedjes van Eugenio Bennato en La Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare.
Na de middelbare school werd hij geselecteerd om te studeren aan de Academie voor Dramatische Kunst “Studio Herman Teirlinck” in Antwerpen. Als zanger werd hij klassiek geschoold door Aria-Antica zangdocent Hilde Mulkers.
In 1993 richtte hij zijn eerste band op waarmee hij optrad in verschillende muziekclubs en festivals, met een repertoire van zijn eigen liedjes en covers van andere Italiaanse artiesten.
In dat zelfde jaar startte hij zijn studies in alternatieve geneeswijzen met o.a. Shiatsu, Cranio-Sacrale Therapie, Aura- en Chakrahealing en nam hij deel aan Traditionele Native of American Healing Ceremonies.
Zijn nummer "Fermi i pensieri" (Stop de gedachten) werd in 1996 uitgebracht in de compilatie Planet Flanders (Pan Records).
Vanaf 1997 begon hij samen te werken met verschillende professionele muzikanten zoals Dirk Schreurs, Roman Korolik, Koen Van Den Driessche, Stijn Norga, Roberto Mercurio, Angelo Bisceglia, Roeland Alen, Jan Servaes en Michel Bisceglia.
Marco's lied "Un paese stellare", naast andere liedjes van Salvatore Adamo, is opgenomen in de soundtrack van de film "Mineurs" van regisseur Fulvio Wetzl, met onder meer Valeria Vaiano en de wereldberoemde acteur Franco Nero.
Zijn muzikale repertoire bestaat uit eigen versies van Italiaanse en Napolitaanse traditionele liederen en eigen nummers ontstaan uit ervaringen met een diepe verbinding met het leven op Aarde, de Aarde zelf en de Kosmos.
De nummers zijn afwisselend ritmisch en sensueel, waarbij de ziel altijd wordt aangeraakt, aangesproken, herinnerd en aangemoedigd.
Elk nummer en elk concert is een ode aan de hoop en het vertrouwen in het leven.

The songs are alternately rhythmic and sensual, with the soul always being touched, addressed, remembered and encouraged.
Every song and concert is an ode to hope and confidence in life.
