BALLO! | XIII Edizione | Auditorium Parco della Musica di Roma - Italia

by Diatonic News
Auditorium Parco della Musica - Roma
Torna BALLO!
Un progetto originale di Ambrogio Sparagna con OPI Orchestra Popolare Italiana dell’Auditorium Parco della Musica Roma, il Coro popolare diretto da Anna Rita Colaianni, il Corpo di Ballo Popolare diretto da Francesca Trenta,
Paranza d’o Lione di Scafati, Compagnia di Danza di Mvula Sungani e con la partecipazione straordinaria di Miki Matsuse Van Hoecke.
👉 Il 1 Agosto ritorna BALLO! la grande festa spettacolo dedicata alla riscoperta e alla reinterpretazione delle antiche danze popolari italiane. Un grande evento estivo, giunto alla sua tredicesima edizione, che ogni anno, grazie alla forza della sua musica travolgente e all’energia vertiginosa della danza, trasforma la Cavea in una colorata e calorosa piazza del Sud dell’Italia.
👉 Sul grande palco della Cavea, i cento protagonisti dello spettacolo (cantanti, strumentisti, coristi e danzatori) mettono in scena una serie di “quadri sonori” di grande fascino alternando momenti coreografici individuali e collettivi dando vita ad un appassionato e rigenerante inno alla vita. Un grande spettacolo popolare che fa scatenare il pubblico dell’Auditorium trascinato nel vortice della festa.
👉 Quest’anno la tredicesima edizione di Ballo! è dedicata a Micha van Hoecke, ballerino, coreografo e regista belga tra i protagonisti di fama mondiale del 'teatro di danza' e direttore del corpo di ballo del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma che ci ha lasciato nell’agosto del 2021.
Nel 2008 Ambrogio Sparagna e Micha van Hoecke composero un originale spettacolo di teatro danza “Sinfonia per una Taranta”, prodotta dalla Fondazione Musica per Roma e Ravenna Festival”, in cui Micha “scolpì” i paesaggi sonori raccontati da Sparagna costruendo un immaginario danzante alla ricerca di una umanità antica, racchiusa tra storia, fantasia e contemporaneità.
👉 Lo spettacolo del 1 Agosto vuole omaggiare questo straordinario incontro artistico e umano proponendo una serie di quadri sonori fra cui le pirotecniche azioni di danza tradizionale del Corpo di Ballo popolare dell’Auditorium coordinato da Francesca Trenta; le Tammurriate del gruppo di cantori e suonatori tradizionali della Paranza d’o Lione di Scafati e le intense azioni coreografiche realizzate dalla compagnia di Mvula Sungani. Infine, per coronare questa grande festa popolare per Micha, Miki Matsuse Van Hoecke proporrà alcune coreografie originali che il Maestro belga-russo compose nel 2008 per la “Sinfonia per una Taranta”.

Hike Bauweraerts: Session advanced diatonic accordion - BE

by Diatonic News
maximum 12 participants, from 16 years of age
WITH: Hilke Bauweraerts

Although Hilke started playing all kinds of instruments as a child, it was the diatonic accordion that finally won her heart. At the age of 16, she devoted herself to her great love as a self-taught musician, later taking a Master's degree in Music Therapy at LUCA School of Arts. She is a very creative musician/composer who is not afraid of a dose of daring and pulls out all the stops to play songs with the right energy. She currently tours the stages with the bands Hidrae, Marvara, Threo, Duo Bauweraerts Van Hees and the theatre company Tal en Thee. She also teaches diatonic accordion at the academy of Herentals and the arts college Musart! in Hasselt. Hilke gives workshops for the KID concerts of Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and has in the past taught at the folkstage of Kalmthout & Gooik and for Wisper.

for advanced accordionists who have mastered their instrument sufficiently and can easily play a simple melody with basses by ear. You know the names of the basses. It is not necessary to be able to read notes, because we work by ear.

Hilke teaches you to play fun folk tunes and is not afraid to make an excursion to other genres. Based on these tunes, we will have fun by focusing on our skills as individuals, accompanists and arrangers. How can I play a melody/bass more beautifully? What technique is needed to do this? How can I accompany a melody, paying attention to danceability? How can I vary? How can I make a simple second voice? Which tools do I need to improvise something small? Both individual playing and playing together are addressed in a playful manner!

Civitella Alfedena Folk Festival - Italia

by Diatonic News
Il Civitella Alfedena Folk Festival prosegue con la XXI edizione.
La nuova amministrazione comunale di Civitella Alfedena ha espresso l'intenzione di voler continuare il percorso iniziato ben 22 anni fa e, nonostante le difficoltà, ci ha incaricato di provare ad organizzare una piccola edizione anche per quest'anno.

Stanno lavorando al programma, che per ovvie ragioni non potrà avere le stesse caratteristiche delle scorse edizioni, cercando di sfruttare al meglio le poche risorse a disposizione.

Sarà un'edizione di passaggio, importante però per dare continuità al folk festival, ma sopra tutto un'occasione per incontrarci e festeggiare insieme il proseguo di una manifestazione a carattere nazionale che nonostante continue difficoltà riesce a sopravvivere.

Ovviamente saranno ben accette proposte artistiche, compatibili con la situazione, che valuteremo e se fattibili inseriremo nel programma.

summer concerts and folk balls à volonté - Belgium

by Diatonic News
During the Traditional Folk Music Stage, you can enjoy memorable concerts in a unique location, the Saint Nicholas Church. Every evening, (inter)national folk musicians bring a beautiful performance. Afterwards, a folk ball with live music erupts until the early hours. Come and party along to a magic circle, jig or polka. And with your favourite partner, dance an intimate waltz or mazurka to music from here and far away. Don't feel like putting on your dancing shoes? Then have your instrument ready and join in one of the jam sessions that arise here and there.

Gaita player Anxo Lorenzo & fiddler Eoghan Neff bring Galicia and Ireland all the way to Gooik. Bumblebees of the highest order with Michel Terlinck and his five-strong ensemble. Broes gives you a taste of colourful feel-good folk and British folk singer Chris Wood captivates you with his beautiful songs, together with his guitar.

After that, it's dancing to Cardboard Cabin's solid powerfolk, Aérokorda's Celtic and Slavic touch, Cecilia's pure rhythm, BA1's traditional tunes with a twist, Threo's danceable standards & compositions and the gigantic baljam with all the participants of the stage, led by Duo De Schepper-Sanczuk!

Forte del successo riscontrato nelle precedenti edizioni, durante le quali migliaia di persone si sono riversate per le strade del paese, la Pro-loco arbereshe, guidata dalla presidentessa Mariangela Notaro, in sinergia con l’amministrazione comunale di Caraffa, ha voluto rinnovare l’appuntamento con la musica popolare. A far ballare il pubblico proveniente da tutta la regione sarà, lunedì 1 agosto alle ore 22, il gruppo degli Etnosound.

Martedì 2, invece, spetterà a Cosimo Papandrea riscaldare l’atmosfera del piccolo borgo della provincia di Catanzaro. Anche quest’anno la direzione artistica dell’evento è affidata a Roberto Lorusso.

Reneé de la Prade @ Cotati - USA

by Diatonic News
Reneé de la Prade
Folk musician, rock-n-roller, street performer, accordion teacher, instrument repair tech, groove addict.

Renée grew up loving French culture and rock ’n’ roll. She played piano and guitar as a kid, then fell in love with the button accordion one night backstage at a Shane MacGowan and the Popes concert. Irish music, Zydeco, and her ten-year stint as a street performer led to her current configuration: a button accordion in a low-slung harness, a stomp box, and a funky fusion of old Celtic melodies with Blues soul and Rock power.

Look for her in the Irish-Zydeco-powerhouse band Culann’s Hounds; or else find her rocking under a street light on a Sunday night in North Beach. Her other projects include the female Americana trio Whiskey and Women, recording tracks for many bands, and hacking the bass side of her button accordions so they can play an amazingly diverse amount of music.

Last winter, she went on tour with Jason Webley and the Monsters of the Accordion. Renée is also the creator and editor of the Accordion Babes Album and Pin-Up Calendar, which showcases the songs and exotic photos of female artists from the U.S. and abroad.

When she’s not performing, Renée works at Smythe’s Accordion Center in Oakland, CA, where she’s the resident button accordion specialist and teacher. With her laughing, boot-stomping, high-energy shows and wild pink hair, she’s a hard woman to forget.
