CONCERT – 25 august 2020
Tupa Ruja & Indaco Project
Auditorium Parco della Musica – Spazio Cavea
ROMA

I was invited by the Indaco Project musical formation (formed by the historical founder Mario Pio Mancini on bouzouki and mandola, by Bruno Zoia on double bass, by Maurizio Catania on percussion, by Valeria Villeggia on harp and vocals) to play on August 25, 2020 as a musical guest at the concert to be held in Rome at the “Ennio Morricone” Auditorium of the Parco della Musica.

I will play some traditional Sardinian instruments in pieces such as NURAGHE, SONEANIMA by Andrea Parodi, and DORMI NANIN, a very suggestive and expressive popular lullaby.

The other important guests will be the brilliant Antonello Salis on the accordion, the poetry of the cello by Giovanna Famulari, the electric guitar of the co-arranger of Indaco, Jacopo Barbato, Fabio Mancano on the soprano saxophone, and for the dance part the dancers Elisa Scapeccia, Sabina Samya and Emanuela Amina

THE NEW LAUNEDDAS – Available now

Starting from the analysis of the peculiarities that most distinguish the launeddas, but considering this instrument as any other musical instrument of cultured extraction (with which in the past certain exploratory paths have already been completed), Maurizio Puxeddu, dedicating himself to the experimentation and research of new and unprecedented possibilities of using the launeddas, has created THE NEW LAUNEDDAS – Nuovi suoni per launeddas (New sounds for launeddas) – Catalog of sounds + Attached CD (Language: Italian, English) [Read more]

Some results, finding a natural harmony with the work of the Actores Alidos, have therefore flowed into the realization of the music necessary for the show in question. [Read more]
