March and December tickets valid for the summer date
Tickets for the indoor date in Rome (March 14, Atlantico Live) remain valid for the first leg of the summer tour, that of 13 July at ROCK IN ROME. Same fate also for the date of December 18, 2020. Those who bought tickets for the concert at the Palazzo dello Sport in Rome will be refunded or will be able to convert them for the ROCK IN ROME date.
The tour takes its name from the latest album by the Roman rapper and producer KETY, released on October 18 for Sony Music and already a listening champion. In addition to the special presence of Franco Califano in the already published “What is love”, the guest voices are those of Fabri Fibra, Tedua, Massimo Pericolo, Generic Animal, Noyz Narcos, Speranza and Franco126. The producers, however, in addition to the same Ketama126, are Chris Nolan, Drone126, Crookers & Nic Sarno, Nino Brown and Don Joe. The singer then produced the music of most of the songs.
Who is Ketama126?
KETAMA126 is the new phenomenon of the Italian urban scene. Recognizable for his rock attitude and for his unique style that brings together a direct use of language and a dark romantic streak. The twenty-seven year old in his songs tells his daily life without filters, no self-censorship in its verses: night stories, introspection, vices and pleasures.
The stage name of Piero Baldini, he is a Roman rapper and producer born in 1992. Member of the crew protagonist of the capital’s new rap scene, the Love Gang – CXXVI, whose name pays homage to the one hundred and twenty-six steps of the Tamburino staircase between Trastevere and Monteverde, a meeting point for its members.
In 2014 he released the “10 Pieces” mixtape with SeanyDelRey, while in 2015 he made his debut with his first official album: “Welcome to Ketam-City”, released by the Smuggler’s Bazaar label.
In 2016 he began working on his second album, “Oh Madonna”, which was released in June of the following year. The release of the album is anticipated by three singles, “Fiocco di Neve”, “Dolcevita” and “Piccolo Kety”. In 2018, however, he continued his career by publishing the third album of unreleased studio albums, “Rehab”. A concept album with a strong identity profile, a work that represents the mirror of a part of the life of the young Roman rapper, entirely written and produced by the artist himself.
In 2019 the artist signs with Sony Music Italy and, in May, he publishes the single “Scacciacani”, in collaboration with Massimo Pericolo and produced by Crookers and Nic Sarno. The song was quickly certified Gold Record and becomes one of the cult pieces of Italian rap in the summer.
At the end of September, he also duets with Franco126 and Franco Califano’s voice in “What is love”. Track that creates a surprising connection between trap and songwriting.
