VV.AA. ::: Smarnamisa! Resia valley music

from La folie du jour, submitted by Miguel
Resia Valley is a very small municipality-region lying in North Italy near the borders with Slovenia and Austria.
Resian people, who nowadays are numbered in about a thousand, have slavic origins and speak a very idiomatic
slavic dialect ("rozajanski"), strongly influenced by archaic lingual elements. Located between the two peninsulas 
(the balkan and the italian), but in fact isolated due to its surrounded by mountains alpine position, Resia has, 
in spite of its size, a rich folkloric history with unique customs and traditions.
"Smarnamisa!" compilation, an Avant Records release, is a rare document of traditional resian music created by 
fiddle ("citara"), cello ("bunkula"), "percussive'' feet, vocals, narrations etc.
Perhaps attractive mainly to ones with traditional folk tastes or ethno-musicological interests, but valuable and
sympathetic as a voice of an unseen dot of the world can be.
