Tupa Ruja
World music meets ancestral and contemporary sounds

Tupa Ruja, winners of the prestigious award dedicated to world music Premio Alberto Cesa - Folkest 2022, will appear at the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone with a new lineup.

The nucleus consisting of singer-songwriter Martina Lupi and multi-instrumentalist Fabio Gagliardi, founders of the group formed in 2006, is joined by Stefano Vestrini on drums and percussion and Nicola Cantatore on guitars.

Tupa Ryja's concert is a true "journey into the sounds" of ethnic music, a journey through times and cultures bringing together instruments from different places and worlds such as the didgeridoo, (the traditional Australian aboriginal instrument) and percussion instruments from different parts of the world. This is blended with multiple expressions of the voice, from improvisation to harmonic singing (characteristic of Mongolian culture), with original songs that rediscover languages and dialects belonging to Mediterranean cultures, and with the more modern sounds of the guitar.

Tupa Ruja are Martina Lupi (vocals, Indian accordion, flutes), Fabio Gagliardi (didgeridoo and percussion), Nicola Cantatore (guitars) and Stefano Vestrini (drums and percussion).
