Mascarimirì ::: Festa

Courtesy of Radu at Babe(b)logue
One of the most intriguing bands to emerge in Southern Italy in the past decade, Mascarimirì merge successfully the traditional music (pizzica) of their native area, Salento (the southernmost part of Apulia), with modern influences (raggamuffin, dub, techno and a slice of psychedelia - listen, for example, to the astounding distorted mandolin solo in Pizzica Dub). The musicians themselves like to define their music as "trad-innovative", and with good reason. This album contains first class, truly exciting party music. A must listen. R.

Sorry, no booklet for this album.
If someone can upload it, I'd be grateful.
