La saltarella dell'Alta Sabina - Musica popolare tra Abruzzo e Lazio
TA 05 CD
The Alta Sabina, a part of the Abruzzo region for centuries, conserves still today traces of an original pastoral tradition with influences from the regions of Lazio and the southern Marches due to centuries of transumation The pride of the amatriciana area is the vivacious saltarella, which is danced to the sounds of the organetto, the hand organ, the tamburello, and a particular type of zampogna, the ciaramella, which has only two sound pipes. Ballo del canto, ballo della sala and quadriglie complete the panorama together with the valzer, mazurke, and marcette. Recordings from 1988 to 1993.
