Nuova Campagnia di Canto Popolare (NCCP) ::: La voce del grano

These folks are absolutely one of my favorite Italian bands. They’ve gone through changes, phases and stages over the years, with members coming and going and returning, but the recordings I’ve heard have been consistent in the quality of their songwriting, vision and musicianship. As far as I know, this is their newest recording – the date on the digipack is 2004, but I’ve also seen 2001 attached to this title. Some of their earlier recordings – as well as some albums by individual members – are available on Cianfulli’s great Italian Folk Music blog. NCCP’s catalogue stands, in my humble opinion, as one of the pillars of modern Italian roots music – augmented by socially- and politically-conscious lyrics and themes.
