Gabriella Ferri songs of an Italian folksinger

gabriella ferri
Gabriella Ferri
After Vasco Rossi, Mia Martini and Rino Gaetano this is the last "damned singer": Gabriella Ferri, It was during the "Woodstock" and "Flower Power" era that she starts to become popular. I think Gabriella Ferri was the Italian "Janis Joplin". Her success arrives when she sings roman folk songs. Her popularity increases greatly after exposure on Italian television. For example, a broadcast performance of the traditional song "La società dei magnaccioni" results in disc sales of 500,000 copies! During the 1970's Gabriella Ferri is a muscial guest on many television variety programs. Her career suffers a slow decline for drugs and personal problems. She dies in 2004 from fall from a roof garden: we can only says: goodbye, Gabriella, we miss You.
