Another example of the magic of Montichiello, a unique environment to meet people who change your life!
The Forasteri born in 2005 by a group of young musicians from different musical backgrounds and realities. The meeting takes place in the north of Tuscany, in the town of Carrara, a city of marble and of anarchy, a place where the struggle for survival and improvement of the harsh working conditions in quarries created the conditions for the flowering of libertarian ideals and anti-fascists. “I love the people, my country is the world …”, wrote the internationalist Tuscan Francesco Bertelli, returning from the tragic experience of the Commune of Paris, from where starts our search for knowledge and memories that belong to popular culture all latitudes, animated by a passionate and omnivorous curiosity that knows no limits or boundaries “national”.
The different backgrounds and music of the band has always brought new ideas and suggestions to the repertoire of traditional folk, and so a core group of tarantella, “pizziche” (music played with a haunting and hypnotic rhythms to free tarantati by the bite of the legendary tarantula) and serenades southern Italy, has enriched the musical project of songs and sonatas of central and northern Italy, work songs, political songs of love and then get to the Balkans, Caucasus, Mongolian, Portuguese and Spanish.
