Calicanto ::: Isole senza mar

Isole senza mar is Calicanto's eleventh CD (presented in occasion of the 25th year of activity of the band: 1981-2006) is fully devoted to the music and the popular culture of the Euganean Hills. 
Isole senza mar has been prized by french 'Academie Charles Cros' as one of the four most interesting works worldwide in the scene of World Music, in 2006, with the special mention 'Coup de coeur'.
The work, a CD with a 80 pages booklet, comes from 2 years of researches on documents, and interviews to the elders bearing tradition, but also offers original tunes and collaborations with important guests such as J.M. Carlotti and D. Paris, the various musical and cultural entities of the Euganean Hills and reaching a sort of cultural partnership with french ” Le Parc Des Volcans D’Auvergne”.
And so, here are the recalls to trobadours of Corte Estense, to Beatrice d’Este, to Petrarca, Shelley, to gregorian chant, the rituals such as “batermarso”, musical bands echoes, corals, dances, lullabies, poetic images, everything helping to define the subtle beauty of these hills, and invites us to take a new moving trip on our roads.
