Last week I spoke to you about Musiconnect
first Italian folk/world music showcase which took place in Pistoia, Italy. It was such a great event!
This week however I was invited to Catania (Sicily) to the last concert of the Nufolk (Global Connections) Orchestra. The concert was very fine, and lovely, with musical influences from Belgium, Italy, Denmark, Hungary, Spain, and Latvia. It was nice to spend some time with the whole project team and the artists, listen to their experience with the project, the challenges, and creative answers, and their wishes for the future.
Nu-folk Global Connections
is a project that was supported by Creative Europe and had the objective to bring together in a European Folk Orchestra twelve young music artists
from six various countries
, allowing them to create an original production
and live show of contemporary folk music
and circulate it across Europe. The show is available to you if you want to offer your audience a journey through European trad folk music. I highly recommend it if you want to catch up with new and young audiences. A live album
is available, and soon more live videos
will be uploaded on the website.
While speaking about “live album
”, remember that in January Tsuumi Sound System
‘s new release will be out: 72 minutes of topmost contemporary Nordic folk
and Finnish music recorded live over the last years in various festivals and venues across Europe.
