‘A CHIENA Wine Festival with Cafè Loti and Nando Citarella

GREENHOUSES (SA) – On the day of the tapping of the barrels, Friday 11 November, “A Chiena” announces two days of music in Serre in the enchanting setting of the Palazzo Ducale, with a concert by the trio Café Loti and a two-day workshop entitled “Songs of distant voices and Terra Madre ”with Nando Citarella

“San Martino, every must is wine!”. Friday 11th November we celebrate San Martino Bishop of tour, patron saint of sommeliers, coopers, horses and riders, as well as married and engaged men. The veneration for San Martino is deeply felt, and there is no day of the year that there is no reason to invoke the great saint. Apart from the opening of the barrels and therefore the celebration of the end of the agricultural year, with the harvest of the last fruits and the last banquet before Christmas, warmed by the warm sun that is a prelude to the shortest, darkest and most rigid days of the year , its name is linked to the miracle of the division of the cloak among the beggars and to the miracle of the summer of San Martino. “’A Chiena” – Intervention co-financed by the POC Campania 2014-2020. Urban regeneration, tourism and culture policies. Unified program of cultural, naturalistic and eno-gastronomic tourist itineraries of national and international scope – signed by Antonello Mercurio, returns to the Doge’s Palace of Serre (Sa), for two events in honor of San Martino and the Wine Festival. The first will see, on Friday 11 November at 9 pm, in the ducal palace of Serre, on stage the Cafe Loti a trio with the strings, the voice and the tammorra of Nando CitarellaArabic and Middle Eastern voice and chords of Stefano Salettithe Iranian musician (and painter) Pejman Tadayon voice, saz, oud and percussion. The Café Loti in Istanbul was, temporibus illis, a place of mediation, of exchange of ideas, of disputes that inevitably ended in reconciliations. . The languages ​​learned from each other to understand each other on the lowest common denominator of common roots, on the affinity of sounds, and where the etymological roots did not help, the imagination of composing a mosaic with fragments of sounds and senses of other languages ​​helped understand each other for real. Thus the sabir was born, for example, with a fiction in many ways identical to that of Swahili in Africa. There are two large backgrounds that we will recognize in the lineup, the first contains pieces that account for sound fragments of medieval Spain, Naples and the French troubadours, the sabir to understand and trade, Persia as the keystone for access to the East. In the second part, which entitles the whole project, In Taberna, Café Loti instead recovers the original spirit of the Codex Buranus, the corpus of compositions that everyone knows in the sumptuous and thundering version of the Carmina Burana. Here the intent is quite different, a work by subtraction that instead tries to restore a subtle balance between sacred and profane, nature and culture, malicious songs and pure mystical expressions: and here too many languages ​​resound, to compose a tapestry that is really beautiful. because multicolored. A two-day concert is added to the concert workshop, by Nando Citarella himself, which will start at 3 pm on Friday 11 November, in the ducal palace of Serre, to end in the morning of the following day, entitled “Songs of distant voices and Mother Earth”. The Workshop will be an opportunity to explore the anthropological origins of the “healing force” of music in the rituals of popular tradition, experimenting with the rhythms of Tamurriate, Pizziche and Tarantelle, linked according to the Jesuit abbot Athanasius Kircher, linked to the cult of Dionysus, publishing then in Rome in 1641 with the title De arte magnetic the result of his studies on tarantism, chiaroscuro dances, to be danced in balance on the fine line between joy and pain, between health and illness, between madness and reason. A narrow space, limited by the short radius of an obsessive and hypnotic harmonic tour, capable however of hosting an entire universe, a world in which life and death strike as fast and relentless as the bite of an insect.
