  • Tradinnovation pizzica

In an Italy torn between respect for traditions and modern temptations, Mascarimirì have established themselves over the past 20 years as the quartet who reinvented the Salento pizzica, introducing it to the world in all its splendour, as modern and crossover as you like. Borrowing from their Roma roots a pronounced taste for travel, the Giagnotti brothers have invented their own musical language: the "tradinnovation". With their fellow musicians, they shuffle the cards in preparation for an epic journey to the heart of the musical traditions musicales of Puglia, which they mix brazenly with Balkan and Arabo-Andalusian influences, flamenco, dub and electro.
