THE HISTORICAL AMBASSADORS OF ITALIAN WORLD BEAT

“The most eclectic and powerful Italian band of the last years.” Fsarah, Denver, USA

“Agricantus is a strong example of blended world music which uses roots traditions to produce a new multicultural style.” Reviewer’s Bookwatch, USA

”Feast your ears on an Italian group that cooks up an exotic blend of cross-cultural ingredients.” Dore Stein, Tangent Radio, USA

“They are awesome performers, so if you ever get to see them live, you will be amazed.” Keith A. Preble, Parola del Giorno. Italy

“They’re applying modernism to roots rather than appropriating exotica.” Rollingstone, Australia

BIOGRAPHY

Hailing from Palermo, Agricantus began their career blending Sicilian traditional themes with contemporary styles such as ambient and trance, before swiftly adding Arabic and North African influences to their Mediterranean melting pot.

By 1996 they were looking even further afield, travelling to Mali to record the multi-awarded album "Tuareg" with local musicians - long before the successes of Tinariwen and the Festival In The Desert made such trips de rigeur. In 1997, they made their name internationally with the title "Istanbul" from the sound-track of "Hamam: The Turkish Bath" by director Ferzan Ozpetek. In a decade, the band released no less than 12 albums.

Since 2010 the band has gone through various line-up changes. Today, with the amazing Anita Vitale on lead vocal and piano, and Enzo Rao on violin, the band has never sounded so good. They are working on new recording material and ready to take the road again. Their new live performance AKOUSTIKOS is based on some of the best compositions of their repertoire, and the sound, definitely more acoustic, makes the music swing like crazy.
