Sicily Folk Orchestra (ITA)

Main Stage - july 17. wednesday 19:30

A dozen musicians of the Sicily Folk Orchestra perform original arrangements with the insertion of modern instruments, along with others from the Mediterranean timbres, the songs of the Sicilian folk tradition. Sicily Folk Orchestra (SFO) is a project of the association "Il Tamburo di Aci" - born in collaboration with AreaSud, Darshan and ItaliaFestival - to give life to a permanent folk orchestra.

"We are more than a concept band - explains Davide Urso, artistic director of the orchestra, and president of the association"Il Tamburo di Aci "- with a focus on Sicily, its rhythms, its songs, often elaborated through the sounds of traditional instruments like bagpipe, marranzano, tambourine, mandolin, accordion and friscalettu but with a sound that is renewed thanks to the contamination of modern instruments such as electric guitar, double bass, drums, flutes. The goal - concludes Urso - is to rediscover, re-propose and promote Sicilian musical traditions by placing them in a fully modern and contemporary context ”.
