La Lionetta have long been one of the most popular and appreciated of the Italian revival-folk bands, as well as on of the less orthodox. The group has always preferred a creative interpretation, free from the contraints of northern-Italy pop music. Their repertoire is characterised on one hand by creative composition of music and text and on the other hand by an unconventional attitude towards the music and arrangements. The musicianship is top-level, and the instrumentation is audacious: accordions, bagpipes, percussion from Europe, Africa and India, tuba, cornmuse, violin, kemecheh, flutes, reeds, horns and guitars.

Musicians:

"Their music does what folk music worthy of the name has always done: lampoon the high-and-mighty, soothe the down-and-out, and celebrate life in all its incommensurable contradictions... Call it what you will, among the most compelling of contemporary Italian folk revival offerings, this is music from out there." - Michael Stone (RootsWorld)

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.
