Ética del trabajo duro - L'Italiano y L'Americano (The Gypsy Queens)



How sweet! (and how commercial?)

Leí en Wikipedia:

The Gypsy Queens is a French pop band, originating from Nice (...)
The original band consisted of Didier Casnati, and Philip Jones, a duo of buskers.[3] The duo was so successful, that other musicians started joining, and the band has been a quintet since 2007. The band was made famous in the private party circles by Elton John, and more publicly by former president Nicolas Sarkozy, who saw them perform at the famous Niçois restaurant "La Petite Maison"[4] and who hired them for their personal events.

The band is known for performing 200 private parties around the world every year, and having played for 51 heads of States, amongst a vast list of celebrities and millionaires around the world. Didier Casnati's famous quote to describe the band is "we are the most famous band you have never heard of" The band continues to perform private parties around the world. (...) The band is associated with the famous jewelry brand Chopard. Casnati is also known for his hard work ethic, and has managed the band since its creation. The band doesn't use the help of managers, agents, or other collaborators. (subrayado por mí, Giovanni)

Estoy trabajando duramente en la preparación de un viaje a Los Angeles, para nuestro libro (el de Aafke y yo) sobre puertos. Al lado del Puerto de Los Angeles (LA) está el Puerto de Long Beach (LB) y sobre ese último puerto hay un libro interesante: Port Town. Creo que hay mucha gente con un "hard work ethic" y supongo que los autores de Port Town lo tengan también.

Tal vez os guste también esta canción (hay muchos italianos en los EEUU):



Me gusta (aún) más la primera versión de esta canción, la original de Renato Carosone, que escuché y vi hace años:
