Neapolitan Nu Genea, formed by Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina, is one of the most charming groove phenomenons of recent years. The band’s impeccable way of retro-futuristically combining disco, boogie, electronic music, funky, Afrobeat, Italo disco, dub and folk makes the listener surrender to the rhythm. Nu Genea came to the attention of rhythm music lovers with the 2015 album The Tony Allen Experiments, made together with Afrobeat legend Tony Allen. The band’s first own album, 2018’s Nueva Napoli, became a real cult hit, being the second best-selling vinyl on the Discogs online platform in 2019. The group released their second album Bar Mediterraneo in 2022. According to their own words, Bar Mediterraneo is a place where people meet and fuse together, an imaginary space that leaves its doors open to travellers and their lives, always exposed to the whims of fate.
