L’arte parla, la cultura prende vita e lentamente, ma con stile e qualità, Area Fuori TEMA prende forma e presenta tre musicisti formidabili: Ivano Icardi, Elio Rivagli e Lorenzo Poli in un concerto interamente strumentale dalle atmosfere coinvolgenti e appassionanti. Per tutti i batteristi e follower di Planet Drum Elio Rivagli è un nome noto e rispettato, dal groove elegante, deciso e personalissimo al punto da contraddistinguere il suo sound facendolo emergere dal mucchio e rendendolo tra i più apprezzati e ricercati batteristi italiani. Lo abbiamo incontrato per la prima volta nel 2007 in questa meravigliosa video intervista e vi esorto, se avete la possibilità, a non perdere questa opportunità per apprezzare il suo stile.
