Balli popolari in Abruzzo - Vol.2 - La saltarella del Teramano
TA 011 CD
Ethnomusical anthology of popular dances from the northern Abruzzo, an area which conserves the most prestigious and difuse tradition of the du’ bottë, the Abruzzese double base hand organ still produced by several workshops. Together with the saltarella, other ethnic dances appear (laccio d'amore, ballo dell'insegna, denzë, polka figurata, ballo della sala, ballo del merlo, etc). There is also an exemplary selection of valzer, polka, & marurka of local origins. Recordings from 1982 to 1998.
