MUSIC MADE IN CALABRIA
The exhilarating drive of Parafoné's music is as good as anything coming from Africa. It is a fine example on how one finds inspiration in the rich local cultural heritage of Calabria (southern Italy) to innovate and put forward the musical traditions of an area that, in the middle of the Mediterranean and between two seas, has always been a place of virtuous contamination and the cradle of Tarantella– from the times of the ancient Magna Grecia to modern days.
