Accomplished trio from different musical backgrounds, Suonno D’Ajere unites in an expedition through four hundred years of Neapolitan song, offering a flamboyant mix between the popular and classical threads of its distinctive character.
24.00H – KALÀSCIMA
Kalàscima explores Taranta traditions reinvented with a wild mix of electronics and lysergic beats, enhancing the raw sounds of bagpipes, launeddas, accordion, baritone sax, bouzouki, and an arsenal of percussion to party-inducing effect.
