Entrevista a Litto Nebbia (I)

por Manel Gausachs el 15/10/2018

Litto Nebbia actuó el pasado 18 de mayo en Barcelona dentro de una pequeña gira española de cuatro conciertos en pequeños locales. Aprovechamos la ocasión para hablar con él poco antes de cumplir los 70. En esta primera entrega de la entrevista, que publicamos en dos partes, hablamos con detalle de seis de los siete discos que ha publicado en estos últimos tres años. Seis obras de géneros muy diferentes que demuestran, una vez más, que Nebbia trasciende los límites del Rock y del relato juvenil que se le adjudicó en sus inicios. En la segunda entrega, que publicaremos próximamente, hablaremos de su faceta como productor, de su nueva autobiografía Mi banda sonora y de lo cerca y lejos que está a la vez entre sí todo el mundo hispánico de la música.
