Nights at The Roundtable with Italian Nueva Hipster singer-songwriter Mimmo Locasciulli from his 2006 album Sglobal with "Correre Baby".
May 23, 2011

Mimmo Locasciulli - tasty in the Nueva Hipster department.

Mimmo Locasciulli has been around for quite a while. With 15 albums to his credit and huge reputation in Europe, he's been associated with the likes Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. But strangely, his name doesn't seem to register as easily over here in the States. Too bad.

I'm considering devoting this week to checking out what's happening in the Global Music scene, as I've been remiss the last few months really digging around to see what's new and interesting coming out of the non-English speaking part of the world. As is always the case - lots.

Tonights Mimmo track is from his 2006 album Sglobal. The tasty, hypnotic and oh-so mysterioso Carrere Baby was issued (I think) as a single. But it's kind of a moot point. It's a great track and further evidence there is a lot going on in the music world besides Lady Gaga.

Check it out and check out his other stuff and stay tuned for more of the World Tour this week.
