“Quaranta”: the new album of the Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

CGS LiveThe Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino recently released “Quaranta”, the new album, as the title suggests, celebrates the long career of the ensemble of Salento. The album comes three years after “Pizzica Indiavolata,” which had been preceded by “Focu D’Amore” in 2010. Two works overtime to the general profile taking the music – both traditional and original – and for luck of the public and critics who have had. And that led the ensemble, founded in 1975 by Daniel Durante (which today is the coordinator’s son Mauro), playing all over the world, following a hectic schedule of events and appearances on the most important stages of the world and traditional music. With “Quaranta” the ensemble does not disappoint, in fact renewed (if possible and, especially, if necessary) the trust that the public has always placed in his productions, as well as the interest that, on an international level, it is generated around the music of Salento. What strikes the disc is the perfect balance between traditional repertoires and original compositions. As has been rightly pointed out by many critics, among the various sectors of the ladder emerges especially harmony, a reflection, that is, the ability of the group to organize a production line. As a part of what you feel in a state of not passive but “creative” listening. A state that comes from evidently overcoming more rigid musical categories and is configured as a flow, consisting of traditional tradition and of contemporary traditional music. Before which – thanks to the skills of the ensemble – is no longer important to understand where they come from (are of oral tradition? Are new? Are traditional performed in a modern form?), but rather to incorporate them in a new perspective. Suggesting a plausible future. A dynamic writing and a tradition button.
