LI STRITTULI - COMPAGNIA DI MUSICA POPOLARE SALENTINA
The traveling festival "La Notte della Taranta" makes a stop in Cutrofiano on August 20 in Piazza Municipio. Now in its 25th edition dedicated to the theme "The tradition of the new," Italy's largest traveling festival crosses 21 towns in Salento from Aug. 4 to 25, with 43 pizzica concerts, more than 400 artists and will lead up to the long night of the Concertone on Aug. 27 in Melpignano (Le), with the maestro concertmaster DARDUST, in the midst of rehearsal activity these days at the Cinema di Calimera together with the Orchestra della Notte della Taranta. The sound journey between memory and vision of Concertone 2022 will be broadcast on RAI 1, Thursday, Sept. 1 at 11:15 p.m.
The evening starts at 9 p.m. with the musical collective Parafoné. In activity for 15 years, it represents one of the most active and innovative bands in southern Italy that is entering the panorama of new Italian world music. The recovery and re-proposal of traditional Calabrian music project the group to the rediscovery of "sound brotherhoods" beyond territorial borders, going back to the ties with the history of a region as full of contaminations as Calabria. The continuous search for sounds and forms and the experimentation between past and future, gives birth to a "proper" expressive language, involving both new generations and old players and singers, who recognize a common matrix between tradition and innovation. A sound, that of Parafoné, which projects a rich sonic treasure of the past to the ever pressing musical future. The group consists of: Angelo Pisani, ethnic woodwinds; Bruno Tassone vocals and beats; Domenico Tino, strings and bouzouki; Totò Codispoti, frame drums and organ; Omar Remi, bass; Antonio La Rosa, percussion; and Sergio Schiavone, strings.
This will be followed by the music of Li Strittuli - Compagnia di Musica Popolare Salentina. "Li Strittuli," were born in the summer of 1996, using typical instruments such as the violin, accordion, accordion, guitar and the Salentine frame drum to then carry out a search for songs from the Brindisi area, in their hometown of San Pancrazio Salentino where they become intimate with the local elders who make their entire musical repertoire available. From this long search, some of the most beautiful songs are extrapolated, which are still part of the proposal of "Li Strittuli," a repertoire of the Salento tradition, free of contamination. The group's main objective is to re-propose a journey through Salento folk music, made up of pizzica pizzica, pizzica tarantata, love stornelli, work and protest songs. The members of the group are: Giorgio D'Aria, tambourine and voice; Vincenzo Mancini, mandolin and voice; Giovanni Palma, voice and guitar; Antonio Melegari voice and accordion; Giulia Piccinni, voice and violin.
