Galata, a district of Istanbul across the Golden Horn, was a sort of "Middle East Genoa" for over two centuries. Even today, going trough the caruggi and creuze leading to the Genoese tower, we seem to hear the voices that tell the ancient Levantine connection with the land of origin. Every time that leave, men have in themselves a Galata, the ancient Genoese dialect that has collected and given voice to these feelings. The Orchestra Bailam, following his Middle East vision came to the roots of Genoese folk with the Compagnia Di Canto Trallalero, inventing a musical repertoire that creates a new territory of poetry. Galata is a musical project that embraces the Middle East and the tradition of Trallalero, a bridge connecting the city of today with the old Genoese district of Constantinople. It 'an imaginary journey to places of encounter between the makam (modal scales Middle East) and the melodies of the circle Trallalero. The rhythms and music are affected by the dense perfume of Rebetiko and texts in Genoese give voice to a Genoa far from its roots and multiculturally influenced by Turkish, Greek, Persian, Armenian, Kurdish, Arabic, Balkan and European with the fantastic open complicity of the Compagnia Di Canto Trallalero to Middle East contamination.


Galata district of Istanbul across the Golden Horn, was a Genoa in the Middle East for more than two centuries.
Even now climbing the alleyways and narrow lane leading to the Genoese tower seems to hear Levantine voices narrating the ancient connections with the land of origin. Every time that men leave they take with themselves a possible Galata, the ancient Genoese dialect has collected and given voice to these feelings.

ORCHESTRA Bailam following their own vision of Middle East came to the roots of folk tradition together with the Genoese COMPAGNIA DI CANTO TRALLALERO, inventing a musical repertoire that creates a new territory of poetry. Galata is a musical project that embraces the Middle East and the tradition of Trallalero, a bridge connecting the city of today with the old Genoese district of Istanbul, the Golden Horn, when Genoa interwoven relationships and exchanges across the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
It 'an imaginary journey in taverns, dens, the café aman, meeting places for the makam (classical modal scales of the Middle East) and the melodies of the circle of Trallalero. The rhythms and music are affected by the dense perfume of Rebetiko and texts in dialect give voice to a Genoa far from Genoa, a distance from their roots.
ORCHESTRA Bailam influenced by multiculturalism - Turkish, Greek, Persian, Armenian, Kurdish, Arabic, Balkan and Rum (European) - that characterizes the Ottoman culture, «translates into music», the masculine character of Genoa thanks to the COMPAGNIA DI CANTO TRALLALERO that opens to contamination of the Middle East, voice and singing of this project.

ORCHESTRA Bailam born in 1989, comes from a strong musical curiosity turned to the world the Middle East. In 1992 with the release of the LP Mamma li Turchi , the Orchestra arrives in France. In 1995, the group began a musical research more closely, both to Klezmer music with its strong influences in the Balkans, and to the Arabic music and Greek-Turkish traditions and began an intense concert activity in Italy and abroad. In 2001 the band publish the CD Bailamme, followed in 2006 by Non Occidentalizzarti (Felmay) and in 2007 by Lengua Serpentina (CNIndie) sung by Roberta Alloisio, a musical research of contaminations in the tradition of Genoese songs. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary was released in 2009 the live CD Harem Bailam (Felmay) full of guests (Mark Beasley, Eyal Lerner, Marco Fadda, Roberta Alloisio, Marica Pellegrini).
Founded in 2012, the COMPAGNIA DI CANTO TRALLALERO is composed by members of different squadre (teams) such as La Squadra and the «Canterini Val Bisagno».
