Italian folk music with Alla Boara
The vision of drummer and Cleveland based composer Anthony Taddeo, Alla Boara’s modern arrangements of near-extinct folk songs are surprising, playful, mournful, tender, and bewitching.
For this show, the group is promoting the release of their debut album, Le Tre Sorelle. Throughout the album are threads of Italian folk music interwoven with improvisation, modern harmonies and feels that are reminiscent of jazz, rock and world music. It aims to bring new life and recognition to this music, but also displays that our musical heritage is still a fertile ground for new creative cultivation.
The band features the talents of Amanda Powell (featured soloist with Grammy Award winning Apollo’s Fire) on vocals, Anthony Taddeo on drums and percussion, Dan Bruce (leader of the :Beta Collective) on guitar, Tommy Lehman on Trumpet, Clay Colley on accordion and Ian Kinnaman on the bass.
