Unavantaluna. Cumpagnia ri musica sixiliana



Unavantaluna. Cumpagnia ri musica sixiliana

Unavantaluna Cumpagnia ri musica sixiliana is an ensemble of musicians brought together by their common Sicilian background and their passion for the popular arts and traditions of their island. Since the birth of the group the need to unite past and present is strongly felt and marked by a quest for a happy balance between tradition and musical innovation. For this reason, they alternate tarantelle, contraddanze and songs from typical seafaring tradition, with original compositions, though played in a traditional style.

unavantalunaUnavantaluna was founded in 2004 by Carmelo Cacciola, Luca Centamore, Pietro Cernuto and Francesco Salvadore, which is still the main group line-up. Over the years Unavantaluna performed on many stages in Italy and abroad, from Germany to France, from Tunisia to Switzerland. They were honored to present their performance at the National Theatre in Taipei in 2016. In 2013 Unavantaluna with their song ISULI won the Andrea Parodi prize, the most important recognition in Italy dedicated to world music. In 2016 the editorial board of “I concerti di Radio Tre” chose the group for the exhibition held in the Cappella Paolina within the Quirinale, in the presence of the President of the Italian Republic.

Sicilian songs and powerful voices, archaic instruments and thousands year old lore, fresh arrangements and sounds: a group of certain impact that becomes enthralling when performing live.
