Orchestra Popolare ItalianaThe show is an original project of the Orchestra Popolare Italiana in collaboration with the Carpino Folk Festival and Puglia Sounds.
The event will be devoted to the great tradition of folk song of the Gargano wich will be proposed through the participation of many singers and traditional musicians from Carpino, San Giovanni Rotondo, Monte Sant'Angelo, Mattinata, Sannicandro Garganico, Vico del Gargano, Ischitella, Rignano and those arbëreshë of Chieuti.
This area, with its rich tradition of  interpreters, poets and folk singers in recent years has been a source of study and inspiration for the revival of the great recovery movement of popular music from Puglia. The Cantori di Carpino, the fascinating "ancient" voices of women of Ischitella, typical tarantella of Sannicandro, mourners songs of arbëreshë tradition of Chieuti, will be supported and accompanied by the Orchestra Popolare Italiana in a loving tribute to a fascinating area yet to be discovered.
