Sonu – Songs from the Homeland
November 8 @ 7:30 pm AEST
Melbourne based Italian nu-folk band Santa Taranta present their new album, ‘Sonu – Songs from the Homeland’, a musical journey that celebrates Italian folk music in Australia.
The project ‘Sonu’, is based on selected field recordings archived at the National Library during the past 40 years. Composer and ethnomusicologist Salvatore Rossano has researched these stories and songs, arranging them along with his own new compositions, to create a vibrant experience of Italian Folk music with a fresh twist, revealing the richness of the past and the present of Italian music in Australia.
Legendary percussionist Greg Sheehan will join the band on stage plus the local band Zumpa will open the night with their great energy.
