FullSet: "The finest in Irish traditional Music".
A formidable ensemble made of six young and talented musicians, a valuable reference in the field of traditional Irish music. After the first award-winning album, "Notes at Liberty", the band went on a long world tour that brought FullSet to perform in the most important world music festivals. Their sophomore album ("Notes after Dark", 2013) contains a dozen songs in which, yet again, intense melodies merge perfectly with up-beat rhythms of Irish folk tradition but also Scottish and American. In 2014 FullSet were awarded the Irish Music Award for Top Traditional Group. Web site - Video.

Canzoniere Grecano Salentino: "Pizzica indiavolata"

They're the first and most important band to play Folk music from Salento: the ones that made
Pizzica popular all over the world. CGS gives a modern take of the famous tradition of pizzica
tarantata, which used to have the power to cure, through the music, the trance and the dancing,
the bite of the legendary Tarantula. CGS's performances are an explosion of energy, passion and
rhythm that take the audience on a time tour, from past to present following the rhythm of a
tambourine, beating heart of Salento tradition. Every year they're the ones who open the big show
Concertone della notte della Taranta in Melpignano, in front of an audience of over 100 thousand
people. Web site - Video

Namvula: "Shiwezwa"

Singer song-writer Namvula is presenting her debut album "Shiwezwa". She was born in Zambia
from a Zambian mother and Scottish father and lived in Switzerland, Kenya and USA. Now she
lives in London. Her style is hybrid and personal, with lyrics that use African languages, English, Portuguese and French and musical influences that go from traditional African rhythms to jazz. Namvula sings and plays the acoustic guitar, accompanied by a multiethnic band made up of African and English musicians. Namvula's performance at the Vox Mundi Festival is an absolute national premiere. Web site - Video
