If you want to discover a world of interesting folk rock music and rock music with folk influences - then this sampler from Italy is the right thing for you!
You can find 17 tracks (2 tracks of every band, plus additionaly a live track of the Modena City Ramblers) of young and mostly up to now not so well known bands of the Italian scene. The language of the songs is Italian - only at one time a chorus is in English… Some of the bands are surely on the edge of folk music - but nevertheless most of the music is fresh and unconventional rootsy music. All in all you get a fine view into the rootsy rock music scene of Italy on the edge of the folk scene. Recommended!
