Scrolling web many music news that follow in this summer, you’ll find that in our country, and not only, festivals, exhibitions, meetings, events dedicated to folk music and some of their most interesting facets. They are very important, both quantitatively and in terms of quality. As has become a tradition of this section, the summer weeks are dedicated to the places and events in which converge a cultural and musical program revolt (though through points of view often very different) to popular music, and some of the most important artists of this scenario. I also find particularly interesting that some festivals do not run out in a few days compressed into a weekend, but cross all summer (or a good part of this). Interesting because this form of programming reflects, clearly, an expansion of interest in cultural programming in general. A convergence of intent, which sees cultural operators and administrations to follow the same directions, organizing programs more precisely articulated that, for an extended period, involving a city or a larger territory. To these factors is, in the best cases, the longevity of some events. So the circle closes with the most positive elements. This is the case, for example, of Orientoccidente, the festival that takes place in Tuscany, started this year on 4 July and going until 10 August. The subtitle of the exhibition is “migrants cultures and music” and all the planning going into this binomial broadly inclusive. Took turns until now artists like Massimo Zamboni, Cristiano De Andrè, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. From tomorrow you can attend concerts of Casa del Vento with Francesco Moneti (Terranova Bracciolini in the province of Arezzo), Banda Improvvisa (Saturday 25 Reggello), Ginevra Di Marco and Elena Ledda (Wednesday, August 5 in Newfoundland Bracciolini).
