"Pop & Popular" orchestra of 15 musicians that is involved in recovering local traditions (love ballades, labour songs, pizzica, etc.) beside proposing original melodic music. The feature of SALENTUCANTU lies in its Pop-like arrangements that mix traditional and electronic instruments, with a "chart sound" hinged on 2 solo tenor voices singing in the wake of Italian "bel canto" tradition. The group is a whole new thing on the Italian World Music scene.
