La Cantiga de la Serena
THE ITALIAN SEASON

With: Fabrizio Piepoli: voice, santur, shruti box, guitar, tar; Giorgia Santoro: flute, bass flute, bansuri, xiao, tin whistle, cymbals; Adolfo La Volpe: oud, corsican cittern, bouzouki, guitar
 

The Salento‑based La Cantiga de la Serena is an ensemble of musicians and researchers that recovers and reworks the ancient music of the Mediterranean Basin, which has always represented a true cultural bridge between the East and the West.
 “La Mar” is a collection of songs belonging to different musical traditions, all having the sea (“la mar” in Ladino) as a leitmotiv.

 This third album forms, along with the two previous ones, a “trilogy of the sea”, outlining an imaginary journey along which ancient Sephardic cantigas (expression of the Spanish Jews’ heritage) entwine with traditional melodies from Apulia, a Greek syrto merges with a song from Grecìa Salentina, the charming sounds of a Syrian melody cross the solemn forcefulness of a Neapolitan villanella, until they melt into the passionate rhythm of a Macedonian horo.
