Ghetonia ::: Riza

A cross between Italy, Balkans and Stravinsky. Ghetonia is something to be taken into account as “generation next”, just a kind of absolute aesthetic perfection of musical form and contents. They are a highly excitable, improvisationally eclectic, world-jazz-contemporary group whose amazing musical language blends timeless sounds and words absorbing Italian, Greek, Balkan, Pizzica, Taranta and much more. Group’s recordings and concerts are to be listed among the finest expressions of Italian musical culture. GHETONIA comes from a very old Greek speaking community based in Southern Apulia, where Griko language has been speaking around for 3.000 years (it's Homer's language). Last album "RIZA" (cd+dvd), that means “root” in ancient and modern Greek, collected praises all over the world and is already took into consideration as a supreme “classic recording” in the field
