“Dilli che venghino” is a record by the Santa Fiora Miners’ Choir, edited by producer Antonio Pascuzzo and released by Parco della Musica Records in collaboration with Vivodimusica. After the successful meeting with Simone Cristicchi which has taken the Amiata ensemble around Italy with the tour “Canti di miniera, d’amore, vino e anarchia” and on prestigious stages such as the Ariston in Sanremo, Primo Maggio in Rome and the Notte della Taranta, the vocal group from Tuscany’s Monte Amiata offers a roundup of 15 tracks of Italian folk music, in which it “duets” with many national and international guests to breathe new life into the songs of our tradition: Simone Cristicchi, Alessandro Mannarino, Solis String Quartet, Euphoria Quartet, Rossoantico, Ambrogio Sparagna, Marco Rinalduzzi, Patrizia Laquidara, Ginevra Di Marco, Hevia, King Naat Veliov & the Original Kocani Orkestar. There is also the voice of Serena Dandini who exceptionally introduces the Chorus in a passage between two songs.
This work is valuable for its commitment to the recovery of popular song, which has always been a hallmark of the activities of the group, which consists of 18 members including two over-eight-year-olds. “Dilli che venghino” is the result of the commitment and creativity of Antonio Pascuzzo, producer, songwriter and cultural worker, and Pericle Odierna, multi-instrumentalist and composer, author of soundtracks and music for theater, with experience in the fields of classical, jazz, popular and art music. Pericles Odierna “rewrote” many of the songs on the album, giving them a current and inspired breath.
