Description

A modern and powerful interpretation of traditional Italian Pizzica. The Pugliese group Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino is known for its powerful rhythms, vocal harmonies and constant groove. Canzoniere has a knack for bringing together all their references, ancient and contemporary, into a coherent narrative, both hybrid and fluid. Their new album Meridiana (Italian for "sundial") contains twelve tracks like the twelve hours of the sundial and tells the story of each of the seven band members' relationship with time. It is co-produced by guitarist Justin Adams, long-time collaborator of Robert Plant, and producer of some of Tinariwen and Rachid Taha's cult albums. The production and instrumentation, combining synth, electric bass and loops with traditional folk instruments, give a modern and powerful reading to this age-old music.
