Cordas et CannasFrom August 29 to 31 will be held in Gravina di Catania “Insulae. The music in the midst of the sea”. The festival, now in its sixth year, aims to tell the music of Sicily and Sardinia, the two largest islands in the Mediterranean. The project is by Carlo Muratori, Sicilian musician and singer also very active in organizing cultural events, mostly related to the musical expression of the oral tradition of his homeland. With “Insulae”, however, opens and puts in a comparative perspective, through which investigate – from the common features of the two islands – the musical productions that identify them both in cultural and social level. As Muratori tells us, “we are interested in the history of the islands of the world, their people, their music and their singing, because we are children of an island, the inhabitants and custodians of that island that floats and yell too often in our soul”.

The program includes performances by many artists with different musical past. As for Sicily, will perform, among others, the Dioscuri, a group born in 1973 in Agrigento and closely linked to the theatrical traditions of Sicily (the musical comedy of 1978 “Pipino il Breve” by Tony Cucchiara, “The Baroness of Carini” 1980 and many others), a field in which they have enjoyed extraordinary success, both in Italy and abroad. Then will perform Taberna Mylaensis group, formed in 1975 in Milazzo, whose musical career is marked – if we exclude an initial period of exclusive adherence to popular music – from a mixed style, in which converge the suggestions of expressive culture of oral tradition and rework of the authors of the band. The Sardinian folk music will be represented by Cordas et Cannas, a group of Olbia born in 1978, in addition to a careful work on the music “in lima del poetar et cantadores”, who often collaborated with members of other genres, such as Paul Fresu and Antonello Melis. Will perform then the Folk Group Olbiese. Although this band was established at the end of the seventies and developed a project more folkloric, in order to enhance the dances and music of Gallura. There will, finally, the interpretations of the songwriting musicality island, with performances by Carlo Muratori and Alfio Patti.
