yeah – took me a while…
here some italian folkmusic: nanni svampa – al di d’incoeu from a series of records with lombardian (north-italian) folk-music. if you see the, ähem, rather naïve cover you might would not expect it, but it is actually a very pleasant record. an interesting variety of instrumentation. so you get popular (as: from the people) songs in lombard (an italian dialect) interpreted by nanni svampa. nanni svampa is an italian musician moving between popular songs, cabaret and french chanson, i.e. he made a record with songs by the great george brassens (yep, i guess i will have to post something by him soon, too).
so give it a listen: nanni svampa – al di d’incoeu, milanese – antologia della canzone lombarda parte terza / volume XI ripped@192 as mp3-files, including cover scans with explanatory texts (in italian) and the tracklisting – get it
here (link dead).
signor svampa’s website you’ll find here.
