FDI- Fratelli D’Italia
(Brothers of Italy)
FDI is a studio music group comprised primarily by Peter Paul Buhne and Tony Buono, who have been writing and composing original music since 1975. To date they have five albums to their credit, all exhibiting their extensive musical talent.
FDI worked with renown Italian poet Cristiana Maria Sebastiani to create a fusion between poetry and music. A result being a ten track album entitled ‘Bosco Dell Anima’ (Woods of the Soul). Since the release of this project in 2009, FDI have received numerous write ups both in Australia and Italy, as well as being featured on Teleambiente in a one hour tv special (TV Network Umbria, Italy). The album was presented at the Italian Institute of Culture Sydney, and received an enormous response.
2009 was a big year for FDI with three of three tracks being featured in the Australian Film ‘Two Fists, One Heart’ produced by David Elfick and directed by Shawn Seet.
Also ‘Egli’ a song written by Peter Paul Buhne and brother Lorenzo Buhne, has been featured in an American comedy series ‘Holt and Randy’ (2009), which received numerous awards both in America and Europe.
FDI have worked with many talented musicians over the years including The Late Maestro & Pianist Nikolai Sokolov, The Late Giuseppe Buhne, Lorenzo Buhne (ex-member of the American band ‘The Dickies’), The Late Shirley Thomas, Shane O’Farrell, Tatyana Dunlop, Peter Northcote & Lee Hutchings to name a few.
At present FDI has been working on a special project dedicated to The Late Giuseppe Buhne. It is expected to be launched in 2016. A song from the project has been released on YouTube in anticipation of the project – ‘Senza Di Lei’
