Ensemble Sangineto is an eclectic band which blends skillfully ancient harmonies and sonorities with modern rhythms. The wide-ranging musical experiences of the individual members converge to create fresh arrangements of traditional Irish, Scottish, Breton & Italian tunes and original compositions that display influences from many varied musical genres ranging from classical to folk, from Gregorian chant to musical, from pop to Celtic music.

The delicate combination of the pure and magic tones of the harp and of the bowed psaltery with the guitar intermingle with the three voice-polyphonic texture evoking dreamlike and airy atmospheres, which are simultaneously joyful and light.

Grand Tour Vol. 1 is the debut album of a 2-part project conceived by Ensemble Sangineto as a tribute to Italian traditional music, with fresh interpretations of a folk tune from each of the 20 Italian regions. The recording focuses on the melding of Italian folk tunes with an international modern flavor, in the perspective of a continuity and renovation of the Italian folk music drawing on other European countries’ traditions (especially, the Irish, French, Breton and Scottish).

Charming melodies, original and astonishing arrangements, the delicate polyphonic texture of the three voices and punchy vibrant rhythms, an innovative and unpredictable use of the timbral potentialities of the harp, the bowed psaltery and the bouzouki.
