From 11 to 14 February will be held at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, the Finisterre World Music Festival. Finisterre is an Italian label but also a management company that manages many artists who represent a good portion of the quality proposal of the Italian music scene. All are more or less united by a musical production of traditional matrix, traced through the experiences of individual artists to a more contemporary and dynamic music path. Among the musicians products from Finisterre we can certainly remember some of which have already been mentioned in this section and that, especially in recent years but in the past, have given rise to a very active movement of the revived folk music, such as Mimmo Epifani (among the most popular Italian mandolin), Giovanna Marini, Acquaragia Drom (a group that offers “Gypsy” music), Ambrogio Sparagna, BandAdriatica (Salento band of wind instruments, percussion and chordophones, which serves Italian marches and fanfares fromsome areas of Eastern Europe), Raffaello Simeoni.
The World Music Festival will also present the participation of four artists (also promoted by Finisterre) which, through their performances and their projects, define the profile of a very diverse and differentiated proposal. You will start the 11 of february with Mish Mash, a quartet of chordophones (violin, guitar and bass, but also Arab lute and kamanche) and Persian percussion, whose music ranges from klezmer Jewish communities askhenazite to the Judeo- Sephardic Romances (affecting a wide area that reaches from Spain to Turkey ), the traditional songs and contemporary authors of the Persian area. On February 12, will be the turn of Francesca Incudine, Sicilian singer-songwriter that we talked about a few weeks ago about his latest album “Iettavuci” and recognition that his two songs, “Iettavuci” and “Caminu sula”, they got all latest edition of Premio Andrea Parodi (critics Award, an award for the best lyrics and award for best music). The same evening will perform the Rocca-Benigni Duo, formed by Paolo Rocca (clarinet) and Fiore Benigni (accordion), which have a varied repertoire, ranging from klezmer to Brazilian choro, geampara by the Romanian modern tango -jazz, with constant reference to the Italian folk tradition. The final evening of the Festival, February 14, is assigned to the group Tammurriata di Scafati (together ensembles and neo-paranza), led by Nando Citarella and Antonio o’ Lione (both present with their individual projects on the roster of the label), which propose the popular repertoire of the Vesuvius area, consisting of tammurriate, tarantella and serenades.
