Zucchini Flowers develops its irony by cheerfully blending food and music, dance and love. That’s the music and the artistic sense of Mimmo Epifani’s work whose dialect will be easily understood by all languages of the world. At last the new recording of one of the most original Italian folk music player, Mimmo Epifani, with its unique repertoire of ballads, Italian serenades and pizziche of northern Salento, and of his native village of S. Vito dei Normanni. Music of an ancient era, of the local countries festivals’ unplugged bands, but also new sounds and new hints to revamp the tradition. Mimmo’s mandola dominates throughout the record and revives those atmospheres and those traditions, bringing them all up to a new modern musical frontier. Mimmo Epifani is also acknowledged for his performing and improvisation techniques, thanks to which he’s ranked one of the best mandolin player in Europe. Besides all the groups he lead, Mimmo has performed with Eugenio Bennato of Musicanova and is currently soloist in the dell’Orchestra Popolare Italiana dell’Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome conducted by Ambrogio Sparagna.
