Ballu furiosu (Froias / CNI)
The third time out for this contemporary roots ensemble from Sardinia and this one really hits it's mark. Much stronger on their island roots, more agressive in their playing, this band is fast becoming one of the best new interpreters of the music. They move effortlessly from polyphonic singing to accordion-filled roots-rock, with style and originality.

The band says:
Tancaruja is the result of a project of Pino Martini. He is the author of musics and lyrics and he lives between Milan and Sardinia. Although his poliedric artistic production, he has never abandoned the study of Sardinian music and poetry.
This is innovative Sardinian music is the direct consequence of years of passionate research and it is enriched with new contents: those of the global village. It is a music without stereotyps, rich of contaminations and influences, where the rigorous aesthetic of tradition and the freedom of innovation are melt together. The finished sound is the merging of Sardinian music into the global musical landscape.
Eight musicians compose the band.
They offer a concert that is a trip diary into a mutating and fascinating music. A concert that sings the land, the “tenores” poetry, the “logudoro” lullebies, the religious songs, the sensuale love, in a new and poetical musical language.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
