cd cover Compagnons Roulants
Jan senso terro (FolkClub Ethnosuoni)

The group offers a well researched but modern reinterpretation of music of the mountain culture of Piedmont, with particular attention to Occitania territory extending both in southern France and Piedmont. The repertoire includes songs and dances played with traditional instruments such as fiddle, percussion, hurdy-gurdy, and bagpipe. Elegant minimalist arrangements and an extraordinary solo voice make Compagnon Roulant an extremely innovative ensemble.

"Paola Lombardo is the primary lead vocalist, and she's an expressive singer who fits in well with this group, whose aim is to research and perform music belonging to the peasant and mountain culture of Piemonte. According to promotional material the goal is to give "particular attention to [the] Occitania territory extending both in southern France and [Piemonte]." Compagnons Roulants' arrangements are generally more spare... (and) reflects a more traditional, folkier, and quieter nature.." - Al Reiss, Dirty Linen
