ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Street music from the two Sicilies. A message passed on by word of mouth from father to son from a world that slowly but irrevocably has to give way to the onset of the modern age. In this programme Accordone leaves aside the music of churches and palaces and turns to an authentic and little known musical tradition of southern Italy. Resonant singing becomes magical medicine.
