Calicanto, historical protagonist of the Italian folk revival, celebrated their 25 years as a group releasing a two cd set.
They showcased it in Padoa, their hometown, on Dec 19, 2006.
That evening, City theatre was overwhelmed with 800 people showing their love for the musicians.
It’s a well reserved recognisation for all the work Calicanto has been doing so far.
CD 1 was recorded live on Sept 8, 2006 at villa Godi-Marinoni, Barbarano Vicentino by Paolo Bernardini e Claudio Bellin, except tracks 01 and 12 recorded Sept 11, 2005 at CENSER, Rovigo.
Cd 2 is a compilation from the band’s 12 previous albums.
It’s distributed by Felmay with fine artwork by Carlo Buffa.
