Album MaggioThe National Award City of Loano, the most important award for the Italian popular music, will take place on 26 and 27 September 2015. In anticipation of the event, whose program has not yet been announced by the organizers, they were announced the winners of the various categories. Widespread reports are interesting, because, in general, reflect the jurors’ attention (remember that the Prize jury consists of sixty journalists) towards different views and different interpretations of the folk music of our country. Scrolling down the standings and the awards, in fact, shows the attention that has been devoted to the new proposals, but also the work that stood out for balance and consistency that characterizes their structure and, consequently, research and ‘ organization put in place by the artists concerned. The prize “Best Album Award 2014″ was awarded to “May” by Riccardo Tesi and Banditaliana (published by Visage Music/Materiali Sonori). The “Lifetime Achievement Award 2015″ will go to the launeddas player Luigi Lai, for the following reasons: “To Luigi Lai for his irreplaceable testimony, artistic and human, combining tradition and cultural dissemination. Direct descendant of the school of launeddas players and the musical and cultural heritage that comes from Villaputzu, Sardinia, has been able to maintain the interest for a tool that has resumed its journey in the contemporary world, in large part thanks to his campaign to teacher and adviser”. “Lifetime Achievement Award” for the Occitan band Lou Dalfin, crowning a long career characterized by research and experimentation. The other winners are the following albums: “Live” (Self production) of Orchestra Buttoni; “Crescendo” (Visage Music/Materiali Sonori) by Duo Bottasso; “Ansema” (Felmay) by Tre Martelli & Gianni Coscia, “Festa Italiana” (Helikonia/Egea) by Lucilla Galeazzi and “Isula ranni” (Finisterre) of Unavantaluna; “Amada” (Self production) by Renato Sette/Elva Lutza; “Mozart a sud di Napoli” (Radici Music/Egea) by Nando Citarella; “Stundai” (Felmay) of Liguriani; “Canciari patruni ‘un è l’bittà” (Contro Records) by Salvo Ruolo and “Xena Tango” (CNI) by Roberta Alloisio.
