Karmachina’s Journey across Italy at 74th Sagra Musicale Umbra
Viaggio in Italia. Ethnomusic Video Mapping draws inspiration from the research of Alan Lomax, the American ethnomusicologist who with his colleague Diego Carpitella, in the 1950s travelled across Italy to discover and document the country’s noble oral musical tradition. The performance is intended as an “audio-visual homage” to the extraordinary variety of themes of traditional music in Italy, a country that is one of Europe’s most important areas of ethnomusicology, in terms of extension and variety.
