For music lovers, but especially for exotic music, a special dedicated festival entitled "Mondo Sound Festival" will be held in the suggestive location of San Vito Lo Capo, which will take place from June 28th to 30th.
The purpose of this exhibition is to introduce exotic sounds and cultures thanks to artists from the South of the world with genres ranging from the voodoo sound of Benin International Musical, to the stars of the new cumbia with Chancha Via Circuito and La Yegros, up to Dele Sosimi and his Afrobeat Orchestra, to reach local authors such as Alessio Bondģ and Matilde Politi, and finish with Auntie Flo“s world club music and Roni Size“s powerful drum“n“bass.
For the first edition of this event, which will hopefully be very successful and ongoing for the years to come, two stages will be set up for the performance of twenty artists from around the world, who will stage ten different musical genres.
We said at the beginning that summer will begin in San Vito Lo Capo with three days of music, shows and concerts to celebrate what are defined as the sound identity of the southern hemisphere in a musical journey that will touch the lands of Africa, the Americas and of the Mediterranean without neglecting our Sicily, which boasts a great tradition of folk music.
Maximum representative of this tradition, revisited in a modern key, is Alessio Bondi who composes his songs in strict Sicilian dialect, taking up in some ways the style of Rosa Balistreri, famous Sicilian singer, who, thanks to his strong and original vocal timbre, interpreted Sicilian songs in a highly dramatic tone.
Still remaining in a certain sense in our Sicily, we point out the exhibition of Chris Obehi, a Nigerian immigrant, who fled from the hunger and misery of his country, like so many of these times, to get on a boat and land in Lampedusa.
Sentimentally linked to his land, he continues to carry on the tradition of his country, making his music a unique synergy between folk, indie, reggae and pop, building an ideal bridge between Africa and Sicily.
And then still to stay in Sicily there are Sergio Beercock, half English half Sicilian, with theatrical experiences as an actor and author, but in that of San Vito Lo Capo will be singer and multi-instrumentalist, performing songs ranging from English folk to songs Argentines and Chileans, and The Daggs, which is a young band that sings and writes in arbėreshe, the ancient language still spoken in Piana degli Albanesi.
There will also be Trapani at the Mondo Sound Festival with DONATO, a project born from the volcanic creativity of Donato Di Trapani with electronic music.
