Gio Moretti's music is a percussive blend of acoustic rock and jazz and features her soulful and expressive voice. Her straightforward and moving songs of life and love are reminiscent of the early works of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Tracy Chapman.
Animacustica's highlights include some stellar collaborations with Moretti teaming with celebrated artists from various cultures and musical styles including Brazilian Superstar Ivan Lins on the romantic duet Il Sole Dell'Anima. Another gem is Gio's playful exchange with legendary guitar innovator Toninho Horta in Estrela Guia, the reworking of Horta's classic Liana. Contemporary jazz heavyweights Mike Stern and Special EFX's Chieli Minucci lend their signature sounds to the project as they support and inspire Moretti during some noteworthy moments in the rhythmic anthems When You Love Somebody and Let's Talk About It respectively.
"ANIMACUSTICA" include special guest like: Ivan Lins, Mike Stern, Toninho Horta...and more..
