Nuova Agricola Associazione (NAA) is formed by a group of musicians with the idea to rearrange traditional folk music from Abruzzi, adding a modern sonority which includes the Salterello of Abruzzi combined with an explosive fusion reggae and Gypsy music.
The songs, written by Graziano Zuccarino with the collaboration of Franco Liberati, speak about stories ordinary life in a little underground world, describing characters coming from country, their culture, (and invisible) “dramas” common people. This picture is described strong irony mixed passion, love, joy.
The group’s 2004 recording, Dall’Alente a lu Serepenne, is an emotional travel through the hills betweens these two rivers, the Alento and the Serepenne. NAA rearranged the tradition of Abruzzi folk music by “contaminating” it with graftings of the Salterello of Abruzzi as well as reggae and Gypsy music
The band: Graziano Zuccarino (vocals, guitar), Franco Liberati (drums), Fabio Duronio (guitar, vocals), Maria Alessandra Piroddi (vocals) and Luca Francavilla (bass).
