Zucchero Weathers Storm for Great Show at Berklee

As wind, hale, rain and snow all mixed together in Boston, hundreds of Zucchero fans crowded the Berklee Performance Center on Saturday, October 29, 2011, for a show that will definitely remain in the hearts and minds of many.

The first half of the concert was dedicated to Zucchero’s latest album, “Chocabeck,” which in the dialect that Adelmo Fornaciari grew up with means “the empty noise a bird’s beak makes.” Zucchero himself explained the word and its significance at the beginning of the show, explaining how his father used to tell him there was “chocabeck” for dinner, and how Zucchero grew up believing it was some wonderful cake.

The second half of the show was dedicated to more known classics of Zucchero’s repertoire, ranging from “Con le mani” to “Misere,” during which a recorded Pavarotti sings some lines of the song.
