The South of Italy has always produced bands of musical talents inspired by the traditions that come from the territory: from tarantellas to tammurriate or pizziche, from band concerts to religious festivals to opera and melodic traditions. But in recent decades, in this part of the Italian ‘Boot’, so marginalized from the rest of the European continent for political and geographical reasons and overwhelmed by the recent wave of migration, new musical trends have developed, crossing the boundaries, emerging from folklore and conquering a large international audience. Through our documentaries, we would like to tell some of the most original characters of this southern new wave who have managed to become known and appreciated in the world, while not entering the big business of mainstream music. The documentaries start from the characters and their music, to tell each one a piece of their fascinating land of origin.
