The new edition of (s) Nodi – festival of unusual music, scheduled from 28 July to 15 September 2020, will be held at the International Museum and Music Library of Bologna, dedicated to all those who stay in the city and want to experience the summer listening to live music.
After the long quarantine imposed by the health emergency, the museum has finally reopened to its public and can re-propose, in compliance with the anti-Covid-19 security measures, its summer appointments with DOC music every Tuesday evening at 9.00 pm.
It debuts on July 28 with MACK in a vortex of hip hop, jazz and electronics formed by floating keyboards, intense rhythmic weaves and rap. The project was born from an idea of two great talents of contemporary Italian jazz: the drummer Marco Frattini from Forlì and the Mantuan pianist Federico Squassabia. The result is a hypnotic mix of instrumental hip hop, avant-jazz, neo-soul and electronics crossed by the voice of AVEX.
On August 4 we leave for sunny Sicily with Unavantaluna – Cumpagnia di Musica Sixiliana, ensemble of musicians united by the common origins and passion for the arts and popular traditions of their land.
On 11 August we discover another island, Sardinia, with the Yule de sonos project – solstice of sounds – which draws its origin from the sounds of the Sardinian land with an original program that combines tradition and innovation, union between past and present in a texture that looks with respect to the oldest memories of the island.
On 18 August, with the Big Babel ensemble, we leave for an evocative journey through different places and eras, to evoke distant images and scents in an ideal sound adventure that from Europe leads to the Far East, following the itineraries of the merchants along the legendary Silk Road.
(s) Nodi continues its route to the Mediterranean on August 25 with Domo Emigrantes in an itinerary sung and played through the musical traditions of Southern Italy with pieces of the Sicilian, Salento and Neapolitan tradition, intertwined with sounds and rhythms of the tradition of the whole Mediterranean basin.
From the sounds of the Mediterranean to the African American blues on September 1st with BagaMojo.
On September 8, the Motus Lævus presented their new project Y, a Phoenician letter that represents the unknown, a coordinated, in many cultures it is the letter of the rite, of initiation, a metaphor of a thousand meanings.
The review ends on September 15 with Enrico Farnedi Duo and the music of the Great Depression. The years following the collapse of Wall Street in 1929 were very hard for America and the world, but they saw an extraordinarily vital explosion of music: through radio, 78 rpm, cinema, juke-joint, theaters and dance clubs, musical genres such as jazz, blues, country, gospel and pop became the soundtrack of a nation that tried to raise its head.
