BandAdriatica is an original research project in quest of Adriatic Sea bands and Balkans fanfares, the ones going with the Ladies during processions or playing during popular carnivals. It’s an hypothetical voyage around Adriatic sea harbours, from Salento to Dalmatia, from Venice to Durazzo till Greek islands. Marches and tarantellas, slav dances and Greek night songs are read in a personal style.
Musicians turn into sailors, searching for a kind of language able to mix different cultures, all sharing the passion for the same sea.
BandAdriatica has taken part in several ethnic music festivals (Mundus, Vincoli Sonori, Gipsy and klezmer music festival, La notte della Taranta Festival) and in 2006/2007 has played more than once with King Naat Veliov & the Original Kocani Orkestar.
The BandAdriatica tune Tourbanda has been included in the compilation Tribù italiche – Puglia published by the World Music Magazine and distributed all over Italy and abroad. In 2007 the band published this first CD called “Contagio”.
