Marranzano World Fest 2017 - Voci della Tradizione :: 29 SEPT – 1 OCTOBER; Catania, Italy




La Sicilia Incontra il Mondo al Marranzano World Fest (MWF)

(ENGLISH BELOW*) Dalla prima edizione del 2005, il MWF si è rapidamente affermato come punto di riferimento e momento di incontro per tutto l’ambiente variegato che unisce la ricerca etnomusicologica con la pratica musicale e con la divulgazione e la salvaguardia del patrimonio musicale di tradizione orale.

Nato con l’obbiettivo di (ri)scoprire e valorizzare le tradizioni musicali siciliane attraverso un fertile confronto con le tradizioni culturali di tutto il Mondo, il MWF è ormai un contesto unico dove si incontrano passato e futuro, ricerca scientifica e pratica artistica, tradizione e contemporaneità, la cultura locale e il villaggio globale, lo studio rigoroso e il puro divertimento, all’insegna dei valori di incontro, scambio e condivisione tra persone, generazioni, lingue e culture diverse.

L’Ottava edizione prevede nel 2017 un approfondimento sulle forme e i repertori, le tecniche esecutive, gli stili e le specificità del canto popolare in Sicilia, sia esso a voce sola o polivocale, nei contesti devozionali e in quelli profani, anche attraverso il confronto con repertori di canto corale e tradizionale di altre regioni d’Italia e del Mondo

Oltre ai concerti con prestigiosi ospiti locali, nazionali e internazionali, il programma prevede un ricco calendario di conferenze, presentazioni e laboratori pratici per conoscere da vicino e sperimentare in prima persona le danze, i canti e le musiche popolari dalla Sicilia alla Campania, dalla Russia all’Africa, passando anche per Ungheria, Francia, Svizzera e Stati Uniti.

▶ Rais Khan - morchang maestro | Barmer Boys - Amrano


Rais Khan - morchang maestro - YouTube
Published on Sep 16, 2013 by Amarrass
Rais Khan is a self taught master of the morchang (a Rajasthani folk instrument, also called the chhangg in Gujarat or morsing in southern India). A multi-instrumentalist, he also plays the bhapang, khartaal and beat-boxes as well.. He is part of the group Barmer Boys, and features on the following albums released on Amarrass Records: "At Home: Barmer Boys" debut album; "Live at the Amarrass Desert Music Festival 2011" available on iTunes, Amazon, Flipkart.com, your neighborhood music store, and at www.amarrass.com



Barmer Boys - Amrano | Sofar Odense - YouTube
Published on Sep 14, 2017 by Sofar Sounds


Barmer Boys are the next generation of performers that carry forward the centuries-old musical traditions of the Manganiyars and are the global ambassadors of contemporary Rajasthani folk and Sufi music. The trio meld traditional Sufi and celebratory songs with the acid twang of the morchang (Jewsharp), the staccato rhythm of the dholak (two headed Indian drum) and beatboxing, creating a sound unique to the band! The band's versatility of styles and bubbling energy infuses each performance - from soulful Sufi kalaams to uplifting wedding and celebratory songs, songs of love and remembrance, to boisterous jams with beat-boxing and live DJ sets. 
The group formed in 2011, and has performed with a host of world renowned artists including Vieux Farka Tourè, Bombino, BaBa ZuLa and Madou Sidiki Diabatè. They have performed at the Amarrass Desert Music Festival (2011, 2012), The Elders Conference, Escape Festival, Bhakti Samaroh and more. The group made their international debut in 2014 with shows at Roskilde Festival ’14, Borneo World Music Expo ’14, a US debut with a coast-to-coast tour in April ’14, and have been wooing audiences on television screens, cinema halls and festivals in India including MTV CokeStudio Season 3, NH7 Weekender ‘14, IIT Mood Indigo ’14 and Jaipur Literature Festival ’15. Barmer Boys have since toured Canada, Europe and Hong Kong, and featured on BBC Radio's Global Beats program.

- Barmer Boys were featured artists on Season 3 of Coke Studio at MTV India (August 2013)

- Debut album "At Home: Barmer Boys" released in Dec 2012 on Amarrass Records (4 Stars - Songlines)

- Performed at Roskilde Festival 2014 with their set between shows by Outkast and The Rolling Stones!

Relaxation and movement: Francois Cesari and his music stories for children / The DAN MOI Jaw Harp Blog ♫

"Sometimes, I use the jaw harp like a robot. Then the kids laugh. The thunder drum is making them awake and they are a little scared as well. They are surprised by the bird voices and they love dancing with the drums and percussions the most”, says french percussionist and music educator Francois Cesari.

I enjoy the fact that I can open up the infinite world of sounds to a new generation”, states Francois Cesari in an email to us. Since 2015 DAN MOI supports the French jaw harp player and percussionist who was part of the trance music band Goayandi for a long time. His new band project is called Watt The Foxxx. When Francois is passionately talking about a new generation, it’s children aged between 6 months and 6 years that he has in mind. For the last 2 years he’s been regularly sharing sound experiences with them. On this mission, too, the instruments from DAN MOI are involved.
