Papik is a musical project born from an idea of the Roman producer and composer Nerio Poggi, which ranges from Pop to Nu Jazz and from Bossa to Nu Soul. He has collaborated with various artists including Mario Biondi on the albums “Handful of Soul” and on the album “I Love You More” where he appears as an author in both. The choice of the name Papik originates from a nickname given to little Nerio by his mother, who after having seen the scene of the birth of the newborn Papik in Nicholas Ray’s film “White Shadows”, noticed the similarity between the two. In 2009 he released his debut album “Rhythm of Life” (Irma records) which contains the single “Staying For Good” sung by Alan Scaffardi ‘. The song is very successful and is broadcast in heavy rotation by the largest Italian national radio networks as well as by many English radios such as Jazz FM and BBC. He begins a close collaboration with the Irma Records label which leads him to the release of 4 other studio albums in his name, an album such as The Soultrend Orchestra, a live album, the soundtrack of the Japanese anime television series Lupine III the Italian Adventure, 8 volumes of a series called Cocktail in which he revisits important songs of Italian music with thematic volumes and genre albums.
