Organetto e tarantelle - Le tradizioni musicali in Lucania - Vol.2
TA 02 CD
The organetto, the hand organ, in Lucania is the direct descendant of the zampogna. Produced by the small semi - artiginal industries of central Italy, it has gradually taken the place of the zampogna since the mid 19th century: The hand organ offers richer and more definite tones and harmonies, has a vivacious timbre, is easily transportable, and is always in tune and ready to use. Various tarantelle, quadriglie and older dances from the 19th century are woven with interesting vocal pieces. Recordings from 1979 to 1991.
