...“ His overwhelmingly penetrating emotions, dreamy voice aims straight for your heart"...
Jimmy Norman, The Coasters - Hit Songwriter (Rolling Stones, Bob Marley)
BERGAMOT – (BER-ga-mat) a lively, upbeat recording of original, folk, Italian classics and classic American hit songs, all sung in the Calabrian language. The vibe is a hybrid of Flamenco and Mediterranean tempos, preserving Michéal’s southern Italian culture.  


Michéal CASTALDO, the independent classical-crossover artist has scheduled his album release just in time for summer with a release date of Tuesday, June 25, 2013. The album is entitled, BERGAMOT, subtitled A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. Poised to be another best-seller from CASTALDO. 

However, the album's lead single, a traditional Calabrian folk song, now re-imagined by CASTALDO, is “CALABRISELLA MIA”, due to make its US video debut on Tuesday May 28, 2013 on Youtube. “CALABRISELLA MIA” will premiere on TV during the cooking show Everyday Gourmet with chef Cindy Barbieri Anschutz on June 16th on NBC Connecticut Affiliate stations (for air time, check local listings). Link to the TV show at www.cindystable.com.

The album, BERGAMOT, serves up 12 songs (Classic Italian songs, Calabrian Folk songs, American Hit songs, an Argentinean Classic song and a Spanish Hit song) all sung in the Calabrian language. 

All these songs were handpicked by CASTALDO who also serves as producer and executive producer of the album along with co-producer and long-time collaborator (fellow Berklee College of Music alum), Norwegian born Stein B. Svendsen. Listeners will feast their ears upon familiar classics all recorded in the Calabrian language. “We’re keeping the song list a secret as it will ‘blow your mind’ when you hear some of them” says Michéal.

This album will be very unique & creative – the songs are sung in Calabrian, going back to Michéal’s roots. The Flamenco and Mediterranean tempos bring in a flavor of Greek, Byzantine and Spanish influence.  

The CD will be available on June 25th at all e-tail stores such as Amazon.com, all digi-download stores like iTunes.com and various mom & pop stores like E. Rossi & Co in Manhattan's Little Italy, Sorriso's in Astoria, Queens NY and Cavallo's International Importing in Waterbury, CT.
