CANTI POPOLARI TOSCANI

The concert is a journey through the Tuscan tradition. The traditions of the past are narrated through songs of love, war and legends with particular reference to rural life, the status of women and the domestic environment. Typically traditional cadences are mixed with modern and descriptive sounds with particular emphasis on texts and melodies. The songs are lyrical-narrative, are introduced in English (if necessary) by the singer, with brief explanations and anecdotes about the stories and contexts. The ballads alternate with dances and songs. Some songs are also performed in other languages, to underline the parallels between the various cultures and the themes that are found similar everywhere.
