Lena italian australian folk songs (16) RE: italian australian folk songs 26 Apr 01

they were called Incanto Italiano.I stumbled into them by total chance tonight,and found out that a while ago they were joined by a very interesting lot of immgrants and refugees-a serbian trupet player,an african drummer,a macedonian sax player-and their roots are now going everywhere outside Italy...a grat band none the less.Their 'music director',the lead guitarist,still runs a voice/guitar duo and is very keen and exquisite performer (mind you,I'm incredibly demanding when it comes down to performing italian folk...)of traditional music.I'll give you his contact number next time we catch up at the Shannon...
Stefano,nel caso ti interessi essere messo in contatto con loro,mandami un
che una consistente ondata migratoria di Italiani si verifico' nella seconda meta' dell'800,in piena Gold Rush,in zone come Victoria e WA,magari se rivolgi le ricerche in quelle aree avrai fortuna......quanto al NSW,le zone intorno a Griffith(non a caso famosa per la coltivazione di agrumi...)sono veri e propri villaggi italiani,pare.Non saprei proprio per il Queensland.
Complimenti,l'argomento e' molto interessante...
