Ensemble Sangineto New Zealand Tour

ensemble strumentiThe Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney and the Italian Embassy in Wellington are pleased to announce the New Zealand tour of the Ensemble Sangineto, one of the best known folk music groups on the Italian (and also non-Italian) scene. Their repertoire ranges from folk to classical music, from Gregorian chant to musicals, pop and Celtic music.

The tour begins in Dunedin on December 30, to then continue to the whole of New Zealand, where they will present over 20 concerts, including a concert to be held on February 20, 2023 at the Old St. Paul Church in Wellington which will be financially supported by the Italian Institute of Culture in Sydney and the Italian Embassy in Wellington. The Ensemble will also perform in Auckland between the 3rd and the 6th of February 2023 within the Harp Fest New Zealand.

The Ensemble Sangineto is one of the most popular folk groups in the Italian scene. Thanks to the experience gained in the various musical genres, from Gregorian chant toensemble verticale classical music, from musical to pop, the performance of the Ensemble offers unusual arrangements of European folk tunes and original compositions (especially with a Celtic flavour) with the sounds of the harp and the guitar, which accompany the three voices. Thanks to these original elements, the Ensemble has performed in the most renowned festivals of Celtic music in Italy, France, Belgium or Spain. Recently they have even performed in China, as the representative group for European popular music.

The Ensemble is formed by twins Adriano and Caterina Sangineto, children of the well-known harp and psaltery maker Michele Sangineto, and the multi-instrumentalist Iacopo Ventura. The repertoire includes traditional Irish, Breton and Galician melodies, along with a great diversion into Italian music. The precious combination of harp, guitar and arched psaltery and the magical fusion of voices, the suspended and dreamy atmospheres, all conjure up a host of emotions that envelop you in their intense purity.
