A journey like a fairy tale. The basic plot: an overworked young man can’t take it any more and his back gives out, so he uses music to help him through his convalescence. Broken Back quickly won over its audience, and the rise was meteoric. Starting out with his classical guitar, his songs tinged with hope and resilience extend to electro prods, for a sunny result that we’ll be delighted to see again at Docks – for the third time already.
David DiAlma is rekindling a soul flame rooted in a long global tradition that has been less explored in Switzerland. With his distinctive Paolo Nutini-style voice, the funk-inspired multi-instrumentalist composes tracks that are definitely retro. At this concert at Docks, he’ll be performing his tracks in a duo formation for a more intimate feel.
