Folk Festival FolksIt was presented on July 24 the new edition of Umbria Folk Festival. The event – which this year celebrates nine years – will be held in Orvieto, at the Fortezza Albornoz, 18 to 23 August. As we have become accustomed, in addition to music (not only traditional), the billboard has several initiatives. How, for example, those related to wine and typical products, or the “folk trek” at dusk and dawn (which involves walking around the rock of Orvieto with traveling music group Le cornamuse del drago and the Orchestra Giovanile di Musica Popolare directed by Ambrogio Sparagna) and finally “folk Visions “, with presentations of books, shows (“Puppets folk” by the Puppet Company Aldrighi, is scheduled for Thursday, August 29 at 19). The program is rich and varied this year. There are artists connected to the folk and traditional Italian scene, but also foreign musicians which offer good shows. Among these we point Dharef Youssef, Tunisian musician and singer, tied hand in glove to jazz and the Sufi tradition, which manages to bring together in complex compositions in which excels the Arabic lute (the concert is scheduled for Tuesday, August 18 at 22.30). Wednesday, August 19 will perform Raiz and Fausto Mesolella, who will present “Dago Red”, the album released in the last months highly praised by critics and audiences. One of the most awaited is undoubtedly the one with Mauro Pagani, who will perform “Creuza de ma”, tracing the unforgettable songs of the album written with Fabrizio De Andrè and which marked the first real opening of the Italian music scene to the “ethnic” musical expressions in the Mediterranean. Finally, the review has been brought forward by a number of initiatives that began Saturday, August 1, and can be considered as a preview of the festival. The proposal, in this case, is of quality, ranging from Roberta Carrese Duo to Brazilian jazz Rossella Costa Trio, up to the Folk Pluggers (composed by David Breccia and Cristian Mei) and the Guna.
