"We propose to represent the present exploring the past," Massimo Donà in: "Philosophy of Music." The sounds that we propose, have originated in this land, "Lucania", a fusion of ancient customs and traditions, accomunanti the populations that live there, and who for centuries have marked important moments of everyday reality; fertility rites and ceremonies characterize the history and the existence of unknown rural reality. Music as a backdrop to a folklore characterized by the link between the world of the sacred, with its aura of unknown and transcendental, and the sphere of the profane tied to 'thrill of the party and to' surrender to the "body" as a symbolic act of Dionysian storage! Symbolic gestures, of which today is almost untraceable origin: "Lucania" ...
Training consists of Massimo Duino mandolin and vocals, Carlo Arvia guitar and voice, tambourine-percussionists Marco Massari and Gianfranco Marcontini, multi-instrumentalist and plays the Diatonic accordion Mario De Carlo, the multi-instrumentalist Luke Bannella and percussionist Giovanni Guarino.
