Fatoumata DiawaraThe female vocal quartet Faraualla – born in Apulia in 1995 and dedicated to research on the use of the voice as an instrument and practice of polyphony – is organizing a series of seminars on the use of the voice. It’s “thematic” laboratories, through which confront technically, and through a contextualization of repertoires, many aspects of vocal popular. “Di canto in canto” is one of them and is open to women only. Its main purpose is the recovery of the musical tradition of the local communities. How to tell us in their own website, the work tends to actively involve participants, which, in this view, will not be “considered only as sources, but also” as “active protagonists of the search and recovery, for the purpose of awareness on the importance of knowledge and the survival of their own traditions”. The seminar is organized in three phases. The first is dedicated to the recovery of songs linked to local traditions, which will coincide with the study and analysis of the repertoires. In the second phase will be proposed to the participants some traditional polyphonic pieces, through which they want to give the participants a chance to go beyond recovery, dealing with some elements less widespread in local repertoires. The third phase consists of an exhibition of the participants. Even “Voci in gioco” is a seminar related to the voice. Has a connotation less “local” and revolves around the categories of “meeting”, “learning” and “interpretation”. In this framework we will analyze some traditional songs of different origins, explaining the technical and executive development. The seminar also includes moments dedicated to improvisation. In this framework, “each person is invited to express themselves through melodic, rhythmic phrases, syllables or sounds simple repeated, interacting with others and creating a sort of stimulating comparison, from which the real-time creation of melodies, harmonies and rhythmic crossings, the identification of specific groups of improvisation, their development, the arrangement”. This seminar will be offered in Forlì, at the cultural center Khatawat, Saturday, January 31 and Sunday, February 1st. Will be led by Gabriella Schiavone and Teresa Vallarella and all information can be found here.
