The Divinos: "A dirty crime family"
This is a musical project absolutely unique in its genre. It mixes many different styles of music: Rock, Jazz, Opera, Dance, Club, Blues, Traditional Italian, Latin, Folk and influenced by gangster movies, spaghetti westerns, musicals and Quentin Tarrantino. "The Divinos crime family" is neither a band nor a musical. It is a show mixing the past and the future, creating a new movement of music entertainment… In total: the DIRTY CRIME SHOW!
