Sinti - Folkstudio, Rome, May 24, 1982

Another gem from the eighties Marcello send me

Sinti (Gypsies) are:
Mario Salvi: melodeon, voice
Massimo Moretti: guitar, mandolin, voice
Luciano Gaetani: strings, whistle, Galician gaita, voice
Carlo Rizzo: percussions, clarinet
Stefano Tavernese was there that night, playing with another group, and joined in with his fiddle.

This group disbanded before leaving a recorded witness, so this gig recording is truly precious.
Most of the involved musicians are still playing with success
Stuff is mainly Italian, but they played music from Galicia, France, Ireland and East Europe as well, reflecting members’ own interest.
You can hear Carlo Rizzo experimenting with a new selfmade tamburello
