Kalascima

Discography
Breaking the mould, adding a dash of electronic and visionary sounds into the tradition of Salento folk music. Telling historical tales of fights, conflicts, land, passions and delirious dances and conjugating them in a present tense (but also looking beyond the future). Thus creating a vibrant and quivering connection between ancient roots and modern technology. In these tunes, everything is overlapped, crossed, split and put back together. The eleven tracks are a collection of frames and images of real stories. Kalàscima’s music turns into a sort of “urban new-folk”, where old memories of a rural culture and a peasant world, overwhelmed by values of modern society, duet with sounds and noises of our daily life. “Psychedelic Trance Tarantella” is the Salento folk music of the future. Kalàscima ideated and created a collection of songs as a soundtrack of our need for psychedelia. An interesting cooperation is the one with star composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi. He played the piano session in the track “Due mari” (Two seas). “Psychedelic Trance Tarantella” pens a new avenue to the World Music scene, the rhythm is always passionate and engaging, the drum beat is highly hypnotic, and the world turns into an endless dance floor and turns into a ‘global’ party.
