[…] Feb. 18: The Italian star Jovanotti (Lorenzo Cherubini) sings in a rich baritone and raps with a quick tongue. He’s had a long career and has borrowed from around the globe to flesh out his songwriting style. (One of his albums is in Spanish.) A committed pacifist, he at times sounds like Manu Chao lite. In addition to a solid following in Italy (his last four records went to No. 1 there), his fans include Michael Franti, Ben Harper, Carlinhos Brown, Sergio Mendes, and Bono, all of whom he’s recorded with.
