Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The name Triciu derives from the place, Muro Leccese, near Lecce in the deep South-East of Italy, where in 1994 a spontaneous activity of Salentine traditional music originated. Triciu is the place of tradition, not only for music but for historical and artistic meanings. In this district actually, the signs of millenary history still resist the test of time. Mascarimirì, whose music background is in the Italian rock scene, developed a conscience for Salentine traditional music. The concept behind it represent a challange: finding a way to make contemporary traditional music using Salentine traditional music. The result in this recording is rather innovative. The sound of 'Pizzica' takes new shapes. These sounds create new 'Pizzica' dances too. There is also space for cross-cultural contaminations. Triciu is a piece thought between Salentine 'Pizzica' and Ragamuffin. A sound that is broadly spread among the youth and written precisely for them.
