June 20th, LIVE-STREAM CONCERT!

The Italian Cultural Institute of Beirut proudly presents a live-stream concert with BandAdriatica on LiveOnMârs TV from Sudestudio in Salento.

Transported by the swirling winds that illuminate the coasts of the eastern sea, BandAdriatica rages on the agitated waves of Salento music with elements of all the Mediterranean sonic coasts as a complex “Babylon”, where the languages begin to harmonize on the popular melodies in the mestizo fervour of the harbours.

A MEDITERRANEAN ODYSSEY

Transported by the swirling winds that illuminate the coasts of the eastern sea, the BandAdriatica rages on the agitated waves of Salento music with elements of all the Mediterranean sonic coasts as a complex “Babylon”, where the languages begin to harmonize on the popular melodies in the mestizo fervour of the harbours.

That’s how the Apulian traditions take on a new resonance, starting from the frantic echoes of Salento music found in the sounds of folklore festivals, processions, funerals, serenades and night trips, taking it from country to country in ten years of research on the common musical matrices of the banks of the Adriatic Sea, reflecting themselves in the music of Albania, Macedonia, Croatia, the Serbian fanfare, North Africa and pushing up to the eastern Mediterranean.

The performance of the band has fascinated the critics at Babel Med 2017 in Marseille who defined it as “one of the best proposals of the whole Festival” and “one of the best Italian live-act”.

BandAdriatica has collaborated with artists such as Bombino, Mercan Dede, Rony Barrak, Savina Yannatou, Chieftains, Burhan Ochal, Kocani Orkestar, Boban Markovic Orchestra, Fanfara Tirana, Eva Quartet, Cafer Naziblas, Fanfare Ciocarlia e Michel Godard.
