TALUNA....A common thread runs from Dubrovnik to Vukovar, passing through Belgrade, touching lightly Tirana and Athens. A thread flowing underwater touching Brindisi and passing through Mediterranean, skimming the Andalusia coast. A thread moves on guitars and violins chords, rebounds on leather drums curving on the accordion keys. Knot of these connections, these are TALUNA. Band formed by four musicians with different roots and backgrounds, moving their first steps in 2008 in Turin (Italy); an immigrant’s city become a meltin'pot of Central Europe and North Africa cultures. GAIA MOBILIJ Calabrian lyre and accordion, MARCO GHEZZO violin, LUCA RUSSO acoustic guitar, PEPPINO LEONE percussions and traditional Southern Italian frame drums are the means of this mental, spatial and musical voyage - between gipsy and sephardic sounds, Balcans syncopated rhythms and the obsessed tarantella. Taluna landing place is a personal sound, their show is a revised traditional repertoire of traditional Italian music arranged in a Balkan key. But the real energy comes their songs written personally, in a mix of styles and genres to which Taluna refers to.The voice is the principal element around that the percussion exprime with the beats balkanic and the violin and guitar approach different languages of improvisation. Refined music and irresistible for the dance.
