“Quaranta” keep hoarding prizes, successes and praises! we are in the shortlist for the Best World Music Albums of 2015 from The Huffington Post!!
here the wonderful words of Martin Lipp:
Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino – Quaranta. This ground-breaking group from the heel of the Italian boot marked its 40th anniversary with a fine album of traditional sounds that are made modern not through electrification, but through sophistication and craftsmanship. Beating frame drums and singing soulfully, the group embodies the working-class heart of the music, but makes it plain they are professionals.
