Melbourne based Italian nu-folk band Santa Taranta present their new album, ‘Sonu – Songs from the Homeland’, a musical journey that celebrates Italian folk music in Australia. Beautiful songs, stories and voices from the National Library of Australia’s collections come alive in this powerful, emotional and life affirming show. Sounds (Suoni) that travel through space and time. Songs that talk about migration, love and loss, hope and life in a new country. The project ‘Sonu’, is based on selected field recordings archived at the National Library during the past 40 years. Composer and ethnomusicologist Salvatore Rossano has researched these stories and songs, arranging them along with his own new compositions, to create a vibrant experience of Italian Folk music with a fresh twist, revealing the richness of the past and the present of Italian music in Australia. Legendary percussionist Greg Sheehan will join the band on stage plus the local band Zumpa will open the night with their great energy (David De Santi accordion, Kristy Stanfield vocal and guitar, Gareth Mewes violin, Innes Campbell mandolin and vocal, Benja King double bass, Andre Bonetti percussion).
