Mattanza is the most famous World Music group from Calabria and features a style that embodies all the Mediterranean cultures. "A people without memory is like a tree without destined to die": these are the final words of every MATTANZA's concert. The name of the group means "tunny-massacre" and wants to be a reminder of the undergoing ethno-massacre to Southern-Italian culture, an issue that threatens to wipe out the richness of marvellous Graecia Magna's heritage.
