The Nordic Feel
“One of the most inventive and innovative Nordic Folk bands - with a rock steady section and a jazz twist.”
Tsuumi Sound System - Live 2021
Tsuumi Sound System - Live 2021
This multi-awarded Finnish band knows the job. The energy is all there, plus an excellent combination of fiddle and accordion music with a rock steady rhythm section and a twist of jazz. Rooted in Nordic folk traditions, the band has toured extensively in 20 countries around the globe, recorded four widely praised albums, a live session on BBC 3, worked together with groups like Väsen and Die Deutsche Kammerfilharmonie, and largely inspired the new generation of European “trad-folk” artists.
Highlights: Womex (Gr), BBC3 (UK), Castelfidardo International, Montelago Celtic Festival (It), Guinness Irish Festival (Ch), Lotus Festival (USA), Eurofonik (Fr), Viljandi (EE), Folkelarm (No), Tradit (Nl), Dranouter (Be)

The Italian Feel
LUCA BASSANESE & La Piccola Orchestra Popolare
“A unique, festive, and socially engaged performance with the vibrant icon of new Italian popular music”
Luca Bassanese in Concert - Luca Bassanese en concert
Luca Bassanese in Concert - Luca Bassanese en concert
At the center of European festivals’ attention with a spicy infusion of transalpine tarantellas, a pumping Balkan blowing power, and a lot of irony, Luca Bassanese & La Piccola Orchestra Popolare look like a gang of rampaging Roman gladiators in search of Federico Fellini’s posthumous legacy. No audience can resist Luca’s merciless positive energy.

The Calabrian Feel
“Truly inspiring”
Parafoné - La notti passa
Parafoné - La notti passa
The exhilarating drive of Parafoné’s music is as good as anything coming from Africa. It is a fine example on how one finds inspiration in the rich local cultural heritage to innovate and put forward the musical traditions of an area that, in the middle of the Mediterranean and between two seas, has always been a place of virtuous contamination and the cradle of Tarantella– from the times of the ancient Magna Grecia to modern days.
Line-up: Bruno Tassone (vocals, trad. instruments), Angelo Pisani (wind and trad-instruments), Antonio La rosa (drums, percussion), Domenico Tino (guitars, saz, bouzouki), Omar Remi (bass), Antonio Codispoti (accordion)
Discography: Live in Quarantine (2020) Incenso e Mirra (2019), Amistà (2015), Disperanza (2012), Il Ritorno dei Suoni (2011)
Special projectCalabria Orchestra (2021)
The Mediterranean Feel (After-Party)
“The glocal energy of this Italian electro-folk quartet has its own charm. Take care: it creates addiction!”
FolkAtomik Live Teaser S.Martino
FolkAtomik Live Teaser S.Martino
