Treglia e SparagnaWill take place on 16 and 17 January in Maranola and Formia (LT) the twenty-third edition of “The Bagpipe – Festival of Traditional Music and Culture”. The event, as it is known to most people now, is born from the tried and tested cooperation between Erasmo Treglia and Ambrogio Sparagna, and is set up as a great meeting place for musicians, instrument makers, scholars, enthusiasts. A space in which converge a bit ‘all the reflections of popular music – from the show to the meetings of study, by the instruments of popular craftsmanship to the prizes for young musicians – and that is confirmed, due to the longevity of the festival, as one of more followed in our country. Among the most interesting aspects we leave out at least two. One is the “Young Musicians Award”, the other is the focus on the music of Salento. Both are modeled on a much followed (and thankfully) in this area, through which tend to structure relations between subjects dealing with the themes and, second, to ensure the growth of interest in the forms of popular production. This last point – the active involvement of the younger generation – calls into question elements of social and cultural order not unusual but still important, which can also help to reconfigure the idea of ​​popular culture, no longer seen solely as a legacy but as a set of integrated elements in the contemporary world. Clearly, all this brings us straight to Salento, where this year’s program dedicates a particular space, with the concerts of Kalascima and the trio Villani-Cavallo-De Gennaro. It should also be placed a special focus on the various joints of the program, which includes the performance of the processional music, “devotional” songs, screening of documentaries, improvisation of bagpipes and a seminar on musette and sordelline by Eric Montbel.
