Concert of Italian popular music with:

At 7pm Thursday, February 19, 2009
Place: Italian Cultural Centre, “Michelangelo Hall”
A vocal and instrumental project that lets us know intimately the compositional mastery and passion of performance of one of the most important musicians in the field of Italian folk music and a great virtuoso of the traditional accordion.
In this “Journey through Italian popular music” the repertoire explores the musical tradition of the Italian area through a series of original pieces composed by Ambrogio Sparagna and accompanied by a small orchestra of instruments that range from the traditional accordion to the shell, from the tambourine to the wheel fiddle, from the chitarra battente (Italian traditional guitar) to the violin and the trumpet.
The guiding light is the mythical journey of Giuseppantonio and his musical companions, embarked on in the early 1900’s, on foot, from Naples to Marseilles, narrated by Sparagna “with words and music”, between serenades and ballads, lullabies and courtship tarantellas, frenetic rhythms and saltarellos, always careful to involve the audience and make it “walk” on the music.
