Pizzica, tarantella and great music from the South of Italy in Melbourne.
Fiddle meets guitar. Foot-tappingly banging. Ear-pleasingly melodic. A beautifully rich combination of string on string that oozes with charisma. Ross and Tom keep their music simple: spine-tingling tunes with a sprinkle of banter.
Variously tagged as ‘folk-rock’, ‘trad-rock’, ‘Celtic-rock’ and even ‘grown-up folk-rock’, Mànran’s music has always defied easy labelling due to the eclectic mix of influences on the band and the alchemy that melds them.
Winners of the BBC Folk Award for Best Duo, Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin combine hauntingly beautiful vocal harmonies, astonishing instrumental virtuosity, with genre-bending material telling tales of myth, history and legend.
Be transported with I Viaggiatori to forgotten fishing villages, moonlit olive groves, and a hard life under a hot sun where peasants play music to celebrate life with a fierce sense of humour.
