A great (the greatest) Italian songwriter

Fabrizio "Faber" De Andre.

This is one of his last concert, the lyrics are taken from an old genoese rhyme (mother goose?) against the war.
I found the whistle riff really amazing.

-It is all settled beneath the chatter and the noise. The silence and the feeling. The excitement and fear. The sparse, erratic flashes of beauty. And then the wretched squalor and the miserable man. All buried by the blanket of the embarrassment of being in the world.- (Jep Gambardella)
