A mental, spatial and musical voyage - between gypsy and sephardic sounds, Balcans syncopated rhythms and tarantella.
Taluna’s show is a revised traditional repertoire of traditional Italian music arranged in a Balkan key. But the real energy comes to their songs written personally, in a mix of styles and genres.
A common thread runs from Dubrovnik to Vukovar, passing through Belgrade, touching lightly Tirana and Athens. A thread flowing underwater touching Brindisi and passing through Mediterranean, skimming the Andalusia coast. This is Taluna. The band was formed by four musicians with different roots and backgrounds, taking their first steps in 2008 in Turin (Italy); an immigrant’s city that’s become a melting pot of Central Europe and North Africa cultures.
