Discanto in concert at the Philadelphia museum of art

Jun 18, 2014 888

DisCanto is a group of Italian conservatory-trained musicians who reinterpret traditional Abruzzese and ethnic southern Italian songs through contemporary and traditional instrumentation.

Sung in dialect, the songs evoke the Apennine Mountains, which have defined Abruzzo's culture, and cover historical themes of celebration, mourning, and struggle. They also reflect the diverse influences that have played a role in Abruzzo's history.
