DEBUT album "POLARIS"
A 2022 Andrea Parodi World Music Awards finalist and Puglia Sounds Music Awards winner, Folkatomik is a new player on the global dance music scene. Established in Turin (Italy) in 2019, the quartet blends electronic dance music with traditional sounds from southern Italy, the Mediterranean, and other eclectic sources.
On stage, the band features a wealth of traditional percussion, wind, and string instruments. The result is an original sound and an energetic and festive live performance, including thrilling vocals. It makes you dance, and reconnect with the deep and the ancient through the power of electronica and tarantella & pizzica - a musical and ritual dance form used in the ancient past to liberate people (especially women) from malignant spirits after a bite of Tarantula spider.
The band is available live in concert all through 2023/24.
