Loto has been played and recorded over the last few years by Taddei. He started on the drums – his instrument of choice – and then added more elements (guitars, bass, piano, keyboards), all essential in the songwriting phase, up to the voice, deliberately kept low in the mix, as if it were whispered to himself with the hope of being universal. The approach is as intimate as it’s instinctive. "Time has smoothed the new songs, defining a puzzle that has taken the shape of my life".
Everything, starting from the drawing on the cover, speaks about the attachment to the places in Tuscany where Taddei grew up and the nostalgia triggered by their memory: "I was born in the countryside, just outside Florence. Here I soon learned to play drums, to be alone, to cultivate silence and sense of discovery guaranteed by the surrounding nature. I developed a certain sacredness for these places".
