Taluna (from Italy)

Taluna (from Italy)



There is a thread stretching from Dubrovnik to Vukovar, passing through Belgrade and descending to touch Tirana and Athens. A thread that runs under the sea and touches Brindisi and Sevilla, which crosses the ocean up to caress the coasts of Argentina and Chile. A thread moves from the strings of guitars and violins, bouncing off the skins of the drums and that bends in the keys of the accordion.



Taluna is a group born in 2006 made up by artists grown up in different artistic enviroments who decided to create a path made of contamination, tradition, experimentation and root music. Gaia Mobilij as main voice ,composer and multi-instrumentalist, Marco Ghezzo – the vibrant gypsy violin, Peppe Leone from south Italy that brings his frame drum to burning rhythms and Camilo Nu from Mexico with his sound from Morocco to Flamenco passing through jazz. The entire world is here, concentrated in the heart of this four artists who have the ability to” bring the audience in every corner of the known music”. Mixing and shuffling rhythms in a new style that smells of desert, of salt sea, of hot sun and mud. They now play all in different parts of the world, taking part to festivals and events: Nicaragua, Bulgaria, France, Spain, Italy. In 2012 Their started to tour in Mexico and California lasted 8 months and brought them from San Francisco to Mexico City ( Balkytlan,the gypsy festival of Mexico city) passing through New York( New Yok Gypsy Festival), Texas ( SXSW presented by WOMEX and Pensylvania( Philadelphia Folk Society, XS Festival).

She worked with Alexian Santino Spinelli, Ettore Castagna and Ross Daly. She works in Italy and abroad with klezmer, folk, Mediterranean and traditional orchestras. Giuseppe, since his first years, studies drums and rhythms of his land, catching it as the heartbeat of the planet. He took part to the edition 2005 and 2006 of the Night of Taranta, International Festival in Melpignano where Buena Vista Social Club took part too. Marco, the rom of Piedmont.
