Talk About is proud to announce the release of “I’m not dead yet,” the new album of the Sardinian one man band Big Bon. This seven tracks album is a like a heated discussion that utilizes the common narrative key of Folksinging to deal with social justice issues related to the contemporary context of Sardinia island. Mirko addresses topics such as the military occupation of the island (The devil takes my soul), the crisis of the industrial work in Sardinia central area (Let It Burn), using the great American musical tradition (Cotton Field, Gambler's blues) as the expressive vehicle for his path in music.
The Album is recorded and produced by the legendary Sardinian bluesman River of Gennargentu, and it’s available in 100 Limited Edition CD copies. You can also stream and download it from Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Deezer, Pandora, Napster and many others.
