La banda (Finisterre)
A funambolico, a musical adventure with many references to Italian popular music, the Balkan, Neapolitan song, jazz and the great tradition of the country band, to evoke the special magic of a circus, the poetry of traveling in a caravan, the bravado of the trapeze, the chaos of the juggler, melancholy of the clown, the elegance of the high wire balancer. A sarabanda of voice and percussions surround the organetto of Clara Graziano, leader and composer of the group, making musical atmospheres of illusion, equilibrium and excitement of a day with the circus caravan. Listen to the music of the new circus: organetto, fanfare and jugglers!
Banda di Villa S. Stefano
Woodwinds, percussions and jugglers led by Clara Graziano’s button accordion come on stage to tell the enthralling tale of the world of the circus, accompanied by music and by acrobatics. It is the tale of villages where a single family was at once acrobat, tamer, cashier, actor , barman . . . and musician.
The original compositions and the communicative verve of the
group is lively, joyful, yet tempered by a subtle vein of melancholy,
typical of Naples and southern Italy – where certain circuses
still set up their tents.
