"Cairo Primo" is Alberto Boccardi's third solo album and his comeback since 2014 "Fingers" (Cassauna / Important Rec). After several collaborations and releases along these years, Alberto emerges with his personal memories of the time spent in the Egyptian Metropolis. Past and present merge into mystery. Tension and calmness become energy.

"Alberto Boccardi's story with Cairo has been all but silky. His not-so-romantic profession threw him in the arms of the humongous African metropolis where he managed to not pass unnoticeable. With multiple musical collaborations, he has also been the driving force behind the Canale Undici live series that - arguably - opened the way to house gigs in the city.

During his time in Cairo, he crossed paths - at least in a hypothetical way - with Egypt's dreary Football legend, Mahmoud 'Bibo' Al-Khatib but that is another story. His stay in the country did not however change his distaste for garlic.

Cairo Primo
stands as his meditative tribute to the City that never sleeps. Laid out over nine tracks featuring his subtle sound signature, this Electro-Acoustic album full of delicate and accomplished compositions possesses many dimensions and depths that will surely demand more than one listen in order to fully digest it. Cairo per noi!" - Hicham Chadly / Nashazphone Records
