Live at Penn Plaza Unplugged: Terra Sangue Mare
September 27, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Terra Sangue Mare explores Sicilian Folk and Roots Music and the sounds inherent in world music traditions. Michela Musolino, Michael Delia and Fabio Turchetti together experimented with the tones and textures produced by instruments, both those traditionally associated with Sicilian folk music such as the tamburo and accordion, and those identified with different world traditions such as the mbira from Zimbabwe, the ektara from India and the Argentine bandoneon. Just as Sicily is a unique culture born of an integration of cultures and peoples, Terra Sangue Mare’s unique sound evolved from the integration of these folk songs with the sounds unique to these instruments to create new arrangements, coupled with voice, which express all the intensity, reminiscences, and feelings inherent in this tradition.
Live at Penn Plaza Unplugged presents one-hour live acoustic sets for lunchtime crowds beginning at 12:30pm. Produced with Ariana’s List.
