Funkyland video preview failure, a journey from Jovanotti and Sorrentino

Tomorrow, Friday 24 June 2022the videoclip of the new single by Broken down, Funkyland per NyNa City 91 Records. One day in advance the video clip is now in an exclusive preview on All Music Italia.

Gianmarco Finizioin arte Broken down, was born in Naples. He starts playing guitar and writing songs in middle school, attending an experimental music class.
Between one job and another he performs live in the club and begins to self-produce his own songs to the DJ Fabio Stingowith which a techno / funk author’s musical journey begins.

His first real chance is when he attends The Voice of Italy reaching the television stage of the blind auditions. The artist also participated and won Sanremo area and reached the final at 1MNEXT 2021.

In 2021 he publishes What do you mean?produced by Mauro Spenillo (aka Socio M), to be followed in 2022 What have you got to light up? per NyNa City 91 record / Artist First. At the moment she is making her first album entirely produced by Leader and Partner M.

But let’s get to Funkylandreleased on digital platforms last June 10. Here’s how the song goes Broken down


Funkyland is my new single, produced by Antonio De Carmine and Mauro Spenillo, alias Principe and Socio M. As well as in the previous singles, also for my first album that we are producing, we travel on funky sounds of the late 70 ‘, putting in highlights musical instruments, such as the Rhodes piano, Fender Stratocaster guitars, Synths that recreate those atmospheres, contaminated by the Neapolitan sound I grew up with.

Funkyland is a tribute to the land of the funky, a story that quotes famous songs brought to success by names such as: Geroge Benson, Bee Gees, Diana Ross, EWF, Kool and the gang, passing through Jovanotti. For me an ideal place where you can take refuge, close your eyes and dance, between lights and colors. It is a journey on a planet made of music and diversity, free from any prejudice, when around us “reality is poor”, to quote another famous persognage and my illustrious fellow citizen: Paolo Sorrentino, in his film “It was the hand of God”.

That hand of “DioS” that we will find in the Funkyland video.

VIDEO PREVIEW Funkyland failure

The video clip of the piece is directed by Alessandro Freschi – Frè. Broken down. I have it tells the singer-songwriter:


In the video, directed by Alessandro Freschi, Funkyland, the land of funky, is represented by an ideal city: Naples.

Journey to Partenope, an ideal land, rich in contaminations, history, culture, breathtaking landscapes, where I am the protagonist, walking and dancing under historical monuments, among the tuff stones and the piperno, in the alleys and among the ancient buildings, brought back to contemporary thanks to the works painted on the walls, by a generation of young artists, who express new forms of art through images of illustrious personalities from history, sport, entertainment, music, cinema, culture, which have become representative, and true and own icons of Naples in the world.

In this tour around the city, among these infinite beauties, I close with the last tribute, to the greatest contemporary representative of Neapolitan music: Pino Daniele, and I do it wearing my magical “funky” glasses, as a visionary, adding to all these beauties around me, a thousand other colors.

Why “NAPUL’E MILLE CULURE!”, To quote precisely, Pino and his most famous song.

“FUNKYLAND: Naples is beautiful and mò abbàlla!


Here are the videos and lyrics of the song.

FUNKYLAND TESTO

Nobody ever asks
