This album was born of travels and meetings - it’s a mix of our stories, new and old, of our personalities and our roots. From the American tradition to the Italian and in particular the Neapolitan, just like the dialects and accents that change and grow when different cultures meet, our music comes from finding the places where our stories speak of the same loves and losses, fears and dreams, and of course the dance floor where everyone can feel a good rhythm. This album is our first offering, our first exploration of the place in these stories where we live.
Our name comes from a traditional Italian breakfast food, (still popular in Naples) which is made from adding milk and pieces of old dry bread into coffee to make a zuppa di latte, or 'milk soup.' Just like Italians love to treasure the specific way their Nonna made a pasta, we try to keep alive the old songs and traditions in our music, but always using fresh ingredients and our own taste to guide us.
Thanks to Paolo and his Marizza Studio, for recording mixing and mastering this record and thanks to
