Corso di laurea triennale in Musica Tradizionale : organetto e non solo !!!

by Diatonic News
Una piccola rivoluzione nei Conservatori italiani: entra la musica tradizionale.
Sulla scia del jazz e della popular music anche la musica tradizionale entra ufficialmente in conservatorio!
Esiste finalmente in Calabria, presso l’Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “Tchaikovsky” di Nocera Terinese (Cz), (l’unico per il momento in Italia) la possibilità di diplomarsi in strumenti tradizionali conseguendo un titolo accademico identico a quello di pianoforte o violino, sotto la guida di insegnanti di primissimo livello.
Una scommessa culturale, d’altronde già vinta nei Conservatori del resto d’Europa, ma anche una prospettiva nuova per migliaia di giovani che già praticano con entusiasmo questa musica. Ad essi in primo luogo si offre la possibilità di trasformare una passione in una professione, attraverso una formazione completa, che apre a diversi sbocchi possibili.
Un riconoscimento prestigioso per le musiche tradizionali e per la world music che hanno ormai uno spazio sempre più importante nella scena musicale attuale.
L’Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “Tchaikovsky”, che dal 2021 diventerà Conservatorio Statale di Musica, ha istituito ormai da un anno il corso di Musiche Tradizionali (DCPL65), all’interno dei quali è possibile conseguire il DIPLOMA ACCADEMICO DI I° LIVELLO (Triennio) e quindi di II° LIVELLO (Biennio) in: CHITARRA BATTENTE (Francesco Loccisano); FISARMONICA DIATONICA (Riccardo Tesi); LIRA CALABRESE; ZAMPOGNA; CIARAMELLA; BANDONEON / FISARMONICA TRADIZIONALE (Antonio Spaccarotella).
L’anno prossimo saranno attivati anche gli indirizzi di TAMBURI A CORNICE e CANTO TRADIZIONALE - per questo anno accademico attivati nell’ambito dei Corsi Propedeutici (DM 382/18).
Il Piano di Studi è articolato su Materie di base (Teoria Ritmica e Percezione musicale; Storia della Musica; Secondo strumento o canto; Musica d’insieme), Materie caratterizzanti (strumento a scelta tra Bandoneon, Fisarmonica, Fisarmonica Diatonica, Zampogna, Chitarra battente, Lira calabrese; Etnomusicologia) e materie ulteriori come Biblioteconomia musicale, Lingua straniera, Composizione jazz, Informatica musicale.
Per quanto riguarda la prassi esecutiva il percorso parte dalla conoscenza del repertorio tradizionale, delle sue forme , gli stili, le tecniche esecutive ma include anche le nuove pratiche nate dal folk revival (attualmente denominato World Music) che hanno portato ad un allargamento del vocabolario ed un ‘evoluzione del linguaggio musicale, includendo anche la composizione di musiche originali e contemporanee.

Quindi studio del passato ma con grande attenzione al presente ed al futuro.
“La tradizione è custodire il fuoco, non adorare le ceneri” diceva Gustav Mahler.
Anche la didattica integrerà la trasmissione orale in uso nella tradizione, ottima per lo sviluppo della memoria e dell’orecchio musicale, con l’uso della lettura e delle partiture fondamentali .

Per l’a.a. 2020-21 le lezioni si svolgeranno on-line sulla piattaforma E-learning del Conservatorio integrate da alcune masterclass in presenza sotto forma di campus, in modo da favorire gli studenti stranieri o fuori sede.

Le iscrizioni chiudono il 30 ottobre.

Per informazioni sui costi e modalità d’iscrizione i riferimenti sono i seguenti: www.conscz.it, segreteria@tchaikovsky.it, oppure per info direttamente 0968 – 923854.

WOMEX RETURNS TO BUDAPEST IN 2020 - Hungary

by Diatonic News
WOMEXWOMEX 20 Edition: 21–25 October 2020 in Budapest, Hungary

Over 2,500 professionals (including 260 performing artists) come together every October from 90 countries, making WOMEX not only the number one networking platform for the world music industry, but also the most diverse music meeting worldwide. Its musical spectrum is unparalleled in the international showcase festival scene, ranging from the most traditional to the new global local underground, embracing folk, roots, local and diaspora cultures and urban and electronic sounds from all over the globe as well as all musical juxtapositions of these. Jazz and classical are explicitly welcome!

7 stages, around 700 exhibiting companies, 100+ speakers, films, an opening concert and an award ceremony across five packed networking days and rather short nights.

After a successful WOMEX event in 2015 in Budapest, Hungary; Piranha Arts, the organisers of WOMEX, today confirmed that the Hungarian capital will once again host the World Music Expo in 2020, making this the second edition to be held in Central Eastern Europe.

Budapest has a rich musical culture, whether it is classical music, modern experimental, electronica, alternative music, or traditional Hungarian and Roma folk music. While this capital city is known for its Turkish thermal baths, Gothic and Neo-Gothic and Roman-inspired architecture, today Budapest is a vibrant musical hub with a unique blend of east meets west, old meets modern culture and lifestyle, making it a valuable city for another exciting edition of WOMEX in 2020.

LE PRINCE DE L’HARMONICA - Poland

by Diatonic News
Greg Zlapen concert - jeudi 01 octobre 2020
CHAPITEAU THABOR / Rennes

En Europe, si l’on parle harmonica, alors on cause de Greg Zlap. Le franco-polonais a écumé les scènes avec Johnny, Mathieu Chedid ou les Vieilles Canailles, enregistré avec Vladimir Cosma ou même inspiré un roman graphique chez Glénat. Avec sept albums d’expérimentations autour du Blues et vingt ans de tournées, celui que J.J.Milteau appelle son fils spirituel passe par la case Grand Soufflet l’année où le festival honore l’harmonica. Passer à côté, ce serait un peu comme ne pas inviter Mozart à un festival de violon.

"Canzoncina" per fisarmonica diatonica

Ecco un piccolo brano tratto dall'Antologia Didattica del "Metodo di base per fisarmonica diatonica" composto ed eseguito da Alessandro Mugnoz.

Il pezzo, quasi una "romanza senza parole" in miniatura, di stile alquanto romantico, dovrebbe stimolare i giovani (e meno giovani) studenti - oltre all'indipendenza di articolazione delle due mani - ad un approccio interpretativo espressivo e cantabile.

Il brano, pur pensato per arricchire ed allargare il repertorio della fisarmonica diatonica (o meglio "bitonica") è naturalmente adatto - e adattabile - per qualsiasi altro tipo di fisarmonica classica/tradizionale ("unitonica").

Fisarmonica diatonica a 8 bassi (Castagnari): Alessandro Mugnoz, 2010.

Dal CD allegato al Metodo di base per Fisarmonica diatonica (esercizi e studietti - tecnica - Antologia didattica) di Edgardo e Alessandro Mugnoz, Edizioni Musicali ARS Spoletium, 2010.

Here is a small excerpt from the Educational Anthology of the "Basic Method for Diatonic Accordion" composed and performed by Alessandro Mugnoz.

The piece, almost a miniature "wordless romance" of rather romantic style, should stimulate young students - in addition to the independence of articulation of the two hands - to an expressive and "cantabile" interpretive approach.

The piece, while designed to enrich and enlarge the repertoire of the diatonic accordion (or rather "bitonic") is naturally suitable - and adaptable - for any other type of classical/traditional accordion ("unitonic").

CYCLE ZYDECO 2020 - LAFAYETTE, LA, USA

by Diatonic News
CYCLE ZYDECO 2020
OCTOBER 7th-11th 2020 Louisiana's Cajun & Creole Cycling Festival

Depuis (since) 2002
Cycle Zydeco was created by Joan & Doc Williams. With the assistance of Lafayette Visitors & Convention Center, the ride has evolved into what has been called the "Best Touring Ride in the US."

In the past, proceeds from Cycle Zydeco have supported TRAIL, Evangeline Area Boy Scouts, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Cajun Cyclist racing teams along with other local civic organizations.

2020

The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 caused Cycle Zydeco to be moved to the fall for the first time. Hectic quick changes but it opened the opportunity for our seasoned riders to visit us during a new time of year and during one of Lafayette’s biggest and best festivals: Festivals Acadiens et Créoles.

FESTIVALS ACADIENS ET CRÉOLES - USA

by Diatonic News
OCT 9-11, 2020
Acadians, or Cajuns as they are now called, were exiled from Nova Scotia in 1755. They took with them few possessions but did carry away a rich cultural heritage, which included a blend of French, Celtic, Scots-Irish and Native American influences. This mixture is evident in a rich oral tradition and repertoire of songs and dances. By the turn of the twentieth century, increasing homogenization of the United States threatened to doom the French language to obscurity. Early versions of the Louisiana constitution made valiant attempts to legitimize the use of French, but America charged on with the nationalism movement.

The Cajun and Creole musicians, cooks and craftsmen and women who participate in this annual event continue to invest themselves in what most rightly consider their own festivals, a self-celebration of Cajun and Creole culture.

Carmelo Torres CD Me Recordarán - Columbia

by Diatonic News
Carmelo TorresAccordion player Carmelo Torres is the leading torch-bearer of the legacy of Cumbia Sabanera, the rural roots style from the Montes de Maria region of Columbia's Caribbean north. It's a defiantly celebratory sound, springing from a turbulent history and continuing struggle. Torres learnt the accordion and the secrets of Cumbia Sabanera from the legendary King of the Cumbia, Andrés Landero. When Landero died in 2000, Torres vowed to continue keeping the sound of the savannah rhythms alive, although no longer fashionable. In 2006, at the age of 65, he was sought out by tropicalista mastermind, Mario Galeano of Frente Cumbiero, who invited him to record with his Los Toscos project, bringing the sound of Sabanera to a younger generation. Fashionable once more, Torres is on the road taking his raw roots cumbia to the world.

GUINGUETTE THABOR
Rennes

Nom de Zeus, Marty, nous voilà en 1935 ! Le DJ mixe avec deux phonographes d’époque ! Ça chuinte, ça crépite et ça balance sur le parquet. Alors c’est ça, une vraie guinguette ? Bon sang mais ça swingue à tout va ! Il faut dire que l’habitué du festival Robert Santiago, spécialiste du jâse et collectionneur de 78t devant l’éternel, n’a pas son pareil pour dénicher les perles swing valse-musette, java et foxtrot. On croirait voir Jo Privat et Tony Murena s’échiner sur scène ! Coupe la DeLorean Marty ! On reste ici et on guinche !

Du haut de leurs trente ans de scène et de leurs cinq disques, les trois fées italiennes font usage de percussions et d’accordéon diatonique pour convoquer le patrimoine musical et chorégraphique du sud de la botte avec joie, énergie et exaltation de l’univers féminin méridional : celui de la tammuniata, de la tarentelle, des chants d’ouvrières et des travailleuses agricoles.

BandAdriatica - Odissea Official videoclip - Italia

by Diatonic News
BandAdriatica - Odissea Official videoclip is released

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chBOKjRX9I8&feature=youtu.be

In attesa del nuovo lavoro discografico previsto per il 2021, prosegue il viaggio musicale della Bandadriatica. Su youtube e sui social è disponibile il videoclip di Odissea, title track dell'ultimo album dell'ensemble salentino guidato dall'organettista, compositore, autore e cantante Claudio Prima.

Prodotto nel 2018 da Finisterre con il sostegno di Puglia Sounds Record, Odissea ha avuto un ottimo riscontro dalla critica internazionale ed è entrato nelle maggiori classifiche internazionali di world music (Transglobal World Music chart, World Music chart Europe e tante altre). Il brano ospita il cantante Antonio Castrignanò e il violoncellista Redi Hasa che insieme alla banda raccontano dell'odissea di un migrante. Nel testo, infatti, la figura di Ulisse si trasforma poeticamente in un Nessuno del nostro tempo, esaltando l'indifferenza che spesso il mondo riserva alle vicende dei popoli immigrati.

Nel video - nato da un'idea dello stesso Claudio Prima e del brasiliano Marcelo Bulgarelli (regista ed esperto di biomeccanica teatrale, autore delle coreografie del nuovo live della banda) - il protagonista Hassane Niang si muove in un mondo deserto (le immagini sono state girate a gennaio), negli spazi vuoti che durante il lockdown hanno ridisegnato le nostre città. La BandAdriatica per la prima volta affronta in modo diretto il tema dell'immigrazione, tema che ha da sempre fatto da sfondo alle musiche migranti e di confine, alle musiche migranti che caratterizzano la band. composta da Claudio Prima (organetto e voce), Emanuele Coluccia e Giovanni Chirico (sax), Andrea Perrone (tromba), Vincenzo Grasso (clarinetto e sax tenore), Gaetano Carrozzo (trombone), Morris Pellizzari (chitarre, saz e kamalè ngonì), Giuseppe Spedicato (basso), Ovidio Venturoso (batteria).
