Invasion of the Italian Roots Bands: Taluna + Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments






Two compelling acoustic bands from Italy, north and south:

Turin's Taluna explore styles from around Italy, the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe. The band has been barnstorming around North America and Mexico; it will return to Mexico later this year to record its next album. After that the band is planning to return to the US and to New York for a big cd release bash at Drom during the fall 2014 NY Gypsy Festival.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS) from Salento, "the heel of the boot" of southeast Italy, keeps the focus on its own roots: The cathartic pizzica tarantata - the (literally) trance-inducing tarantella style from the band's home region. CGS is also on tour now: We'll hear the enervating outfit recorded live in concert earlier this year at Pace University's Schimmel Center - a taste of what to expect when CGS returns to New York to rock Joe's Pub on Thursday June 27th. (We heard the first part of the Pace concert tonight; the remainder will be broadcast at a later date.)

Massive thanks to Pace Schimmel Center engineer and radio-remixer extraordinaire Don Wood and to our illustrious WFMU studio engineers Gil Shuster and Glenn Luttman!

Special thanks also to John Seroff of Greenhouse, and Isabel Soffer of LiveSounds. Live Sounds produced the CGS concert at Pace and presents many great world musicky events in New York.

This band is great. Hope we can make the show on Thursday

Thanks Sheffbirder. I've seen them a couple of times, they are great - and really nice people too. I'll be at the Joe's Pub gig... and I think thanks to a little family-related travel I will also see them at the Concert of Colors in Detroit over July 4th weekend!
