Dopo aver conquistato il Festival di Sanremo 2017, Occidentali’s Karma di Francesco Gabbani è diventato un vero e proprio fenomeno: la si sente dappertutto, alla radio, al supermercato, ovunque. Abbiamo quindi voluto investigare le motivazioni di tale successo e scoprire qualcosa in più sulla genesi del tormentone, intervistando Fabio Ilacqua, autore del testo della canzone.

Varesino, nato nel 1975, Fabio Ilacqua si definisce un “contadino che odia i social”, ma la sua analisi della società contemporanea e delle sue contraddizioni parrebbe testimoniare una lucida interpretazione del mondo di oggi e una sua approfondita conoscenza.

“Occidentali’s Karma” ha riscosso un successo enorme, non solo a Sanremo ma anche nel pubblico italiano. Come mai secondo lei?

Il motivo del successo, parola che non amo particolarmente, di Occidentali’s Karma, è da ricercarsi, a mio parere, nella particolare alchimia creata dalla singolare convivenza di testo e musica. Quando si affrontano certi temi, il rischio d’apparire cattedratico, pomposo è sempre alto e presente. Nel caso di Occidentali’s Karma, la freschezza dell’accompagnamento fa da contraltare al contenuto, veicolandolo in maniera ironica.

Il testo del brano può essere interpretato a più livelli. Qual era l’obiettivo principale del brano? Arrivare a più gente possibile, scatenando la curiosità del pubblico, che poi si sarebbe andato a cercare il significato, o si trattava di un diletto letterario “alto” per un Festival come Sanremo?

Il testo di Occidentali’s Karma ha sicuramente diversi gradi d’interpretazione. Quello a cui penso mentre scrivo una canzone non è però un eventuale pubblico, né l’esercizio di stile; cerco solo di trasformare onestamente in parole le mie sensazioni, il mio particolare modo di vedere il mondo, di comprenderlo. Se questo miracolo avviene, allora anche l’ascoltatore riuscirà a percepire un’emozione. In fondo è solo questo che conta: trasmettere un’emozione.

La scelta della melodia, up-tempo e spensierata: c’era la volontà di far diventare il brano un tormentone?

L’impalcatura musicale è frutto del lavoro di Francesco e Filippo Gabbani insieme a Luca Chiaravalli. Non credo ci sia l’intenzione aprioristica di creare un cosiddetto tormentone. Di fondo c’è un approccio giocoso, divertente che, nella sua essenzialità e per sua stessa natura, ha la capacità di raccogliere il consenso di molti. Il segreto, immagino, sta proprio nella semplicità degli accostamenti, delle scelte melodiche, del ritmo incalzante.

State lavorando all’album. Dovremo aspettarci un nuovo tormentone?

Lavoriamo all’album che dovrebbe uscire, se non ricordo male, in Aprile. Non so nemmeno io cosa aspettarmi. Ci sono idee da sviluppare, da limare e vestire. Non so se ci sarà il tormentone, sicuramente cercheremo di fare il nostro meglio per proporre qualcosa di onesto.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    I think that everything published made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you were to write a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    but what if you added something that makes people desire more?

    I mean Fabio Ilacqua, autore di "Occidentali's Karma", ci spiega il motivo del
    suo successo (INTERVISTA) is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog!

    First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thanks!

    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
