Nidi d'Arac ::: St. Rocco's rave

Nidi d'Arac continue exploring the multiples connections between the new and the ancient inspired by technological developments and a growing club culture.
By forging a more than ever stronger dialogue between traditional folk music and digital sounds, melting together electronica's hypnotic cadences and the trance state induced by the taranta, they have successfully taken their music well beyond the Italian typical pop/rock/raggae audience to a much wider world music audience and a club-going international fan base.
Always aware and deeply respectful of tradition, Nidi d'Arac have reshaped the traditional sounds of pizzica by employing dub's ability to distort and colour sound while retaining its ancient soulful beauty.
And to the purists that often say that is better to leave old traditions as they are, Nidi d'Arac can just point out that there are elements already present in the old that very much often are sympathetically and quite naturally amplified by the new
