BALLADS FROM ABRUZZO

The show of the songwriter Lara Molino takes its name from her last album, “Fòrte e Gendìle” (“Strong and gentle”) in Abruzzo dialect, published by FonoBisanzio in June 2017.

Thanks to this record, Lara Molino has obtained a great critical and public acclaim; indeed, several Italian magazines, such as “Vinile”, “Musica Jazz”, “Buscadero” and “Internazionale”, have related admirably about her and her music.

Lara has performed all over Italy in many concerts with Michele Gazich, internationally acclaimed violinist and artistic producer of the album, and also with her trio: violin, accordion and guitar.

During the concert, lasting about an hour and a half, the songwriter presents her own songs, from her album “Fòrte e Gendìle”, as well as some songs of the popular tradition of Abruzzo; she sings and plays the acoustic guitar. With her, on the stage, a violinist and a an accordionist.

Lara Molino’s songs deal with the story of common people: emigrants, farmers, women, fishermen, brigands, and also local characters like the sprite called “Mazzemarèlle”. These are all protagonists of true stories that describe places, belief and traditions in Abruzzo.

The show is dedicated in particular to all yesterday and today’s emigrants of Abruzzo, to all the women of the world, and to the young people who have not known the Abruzzese language and history yet.
