Cali's performance rocks Wuhan's night
Bruno Caliuri, a top French rock singer and songwriter, better known as Cali, performed at an open-air concert at Wushang Plaza on June 22. The music star, accompanied by his keyboard player, got their audience cheering and waving their hands to the beat.
In an exclusive interview with Changjiang Weekly, he talked about his music career and his stay in Wuhan. Cali said that he was heavily influenced by Léo Ferré, a Frenchborn poet and composer. "I think lyrics are more important than compositions," he said, adding that his songs are a mixture of rock and chanson, a lyric-driven French music style.
Cali expressed gratitude for the hospitality he has received in Wuhan, the only stop of his China tour during the Croisements Festival. Besides performing, he also took some time to meet readers at French Alliance to promote his new book. "I am looking forward to returning to Wuhan with my family next year," he said.
