Established in 2001, Pìvari Trio is a group of research and revival of the italian musical traditions.
With different musical backgrounds, the members of the trio combined their common interest in italian traditional music to explore different repertoires and rescue them from the state of progressive and undeserved neglect.
So, in 2003, starting from the degree thesis of Giuliano Biolchini – discussed at the University of Bologna with Roberto Leydi - arose the first discographical project of Pivari Trio, the CD “Passa ripassa. Songs and dances of Frignano area”, centred on the repertoires collected in the mountainous region of Modena.
The CD was favourably rewieved by the specialized press, both in Italy and abroad, and obtained a recommendation of merit in the prestigious french publication “Trad Magazine”.
Thanks to the CD, Pìvari Trio, during 2003, played in the more important italian festivals of traditional music.
In the summer of the same year, through a close cooperation with the Culture Councillorship and the Sound Archives of Nonantola (Modena), the trio started a music school, at the “Officine Musicali” of Nonantola, and the research into the sacred songs of the popular tradition.
First planned for the area around Modena, the research was extended to the neighbouring Bologna and Reggio Emilia. During this time Pìvari Trio met the “Compagnia del Maggio di Frassinoro” and together they worked for the production of the new CD, centred on the sacred repertoires collected both in this and in previous searches. “La terra che mi porta”, this the title of the brend new work publisheb by Folkclub Ethnosuoni too, has been presented on the 19th of May 2005 at the Abbey of Nonantola (MO), with a very good feedback both from public and critics
