Il nostro "Pizzica Indiavolata" è nella top five dei migliori dischi del 2013 per il Guardian.
Questa la descrizione Robin Denselow: "One of the most exciting bands at WOMAD this summer, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino are from southeast Italy and play pizzica, a style said to cure spider bites, thanks to the pounding, hypnotic effect of the insistent frame drum, matched against fiddle, bagpipes, accordion and five-part harmonies."
"There’s a good reason CGS has been winning raves from critics and musicians and growing its fan base outside Italy. It is a great band that sounds like no other. It has an exotic mystique and a unique musical identity and, though mainly an acoustic ensemble, the band can rock like crazy"
G. De Stefano
“They were among the protagonists of the last Womad, they were among the Notte della Taranta stars, they’re appreciated all over the world and each of their concerts turn into a unique experience. They’re the Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino”. Ernesto Assante interview at the CGS for La Repubblica!!
