Italy: Traditional Songs & Contemporary Creations

The Essentials

Italy, the Mediterranean Sea, France, languages and dialects, cultural intermixing in Mediterranean music… With their arrangements of traditional Italian songs and contemporary creations, the four singers of Sanacore ('who heals hearts' in the Neapolitan dialect) like to build bridges between oral culture and a musical writing that is rooted in this immaterial heritage. Melodic relays, rich harmonies, modulations, variations of pitch, tone colour and volume, superimpositions of styles and times, changes from one language to another… No more barriers between high and low pitch; the sound goes from soprano to alto, covering its tracks and generating surprise, using a cappella voices as one would an array of instruments.
