LE GRAND TOUR
Grand Tour Vol. 1 is the debut album of a 2-part project conceived Ensemble Sangineto as a tribute album to Italian traditional music with fresh interpretations of a folk tune from each of the 20 Italian regions.
From this release arises an involving performance which presents a musical trip exploring the all Italian regions through the reinterpretation of their varied music traditions. Ensemble Sangineto’s main purpose focuses on the melding of Italian folk tunes with an international modern flavor, in the perspective of a continuity and renovation of the Italian folk music drawing on other European countries’ traditions (especially, the Irish, French, Breton and Scottish).
Charming melodies, original and astonishing arrangements, the delicate polyphonic texture of the three voices and punchy vibrant rhythms, an innovative and unpredictable use of the timbral potentialities of the harp, the bowed psaltery and the bouzouki. A fabulous music journey not to be missed!
