Let's take five musicians and let's try to let them play in an unusual way! Capone & BungtBangt is a team with the passion for music and the purpose to amuse people shocking them with a lively and groovy sound created by the leader Maurizio Capone , totally supported by the strength and the energy of his musicians. This project was born few years ago with the idea of going away from standard ways of playing and that's just for this reason that Capone decided to look for tools that could play as good as normal instruments can do. The music is created with waste products that become instruments, every kind of objects that live again transformed into real instruments: piece of wood mounts with 4 elastics for tailor substitute double bass, classic broom mounts with an elastic band play as an electric guitars, polystyrene box with 5 elastic bands play as an harp, plastic garbage / can big metal /can metal sheet replace a real drums set, loops played with big metal can / plastic garbage/ can / pots / metallic pipes, a spanner set becomes and plays as a vibraphone , different sized pans, pieces of recycled wood all enriched by hand beating and energetic sounds coming from their physical expressions. Capone is a singer and a songwriter too. The lyrics are full of deep messages. The music is a mix of funk, hip hop, reggae, soul, techno, tribal and Neapolitan style. There is no band that sounds like that! Capone&BungtBangt had played in festivals, theatres, Tv shows and RadioNetworks in ironical, amusing, amazing and harmonically way to let people fly in a no-borders journey around the world. This is just to show that music cannot be do in usual standards but they can be used to let our imagination and art take different directions and cultures. Also they went abroad in Tokyo, in Cuba, in Switzerland where the project was very much appreciate
