THE MAIN CONCERTS PRESENTED BY RUFFINO
Kalàscima and Marco Calliari
Friday August 14th, starting 8:00 PM
Explosive, energetic and captivating, Kalàscima reinvents traditional music by adding to the original and folk melodies a colorful blend of electronics and transcendent rhythm. Their latest album K (2018) takes an unusual approach with a mixture of dialects and English accompanied by several traditional instruments, percussion, modern instruments and songs.
Marco Calliari was born in Quebec but has always remained very attached to his Italian roots. He knows how to win people’s hearts with his interpretation of original songs like great Italian and Quebec classics. His latest album, Calliari Bang ! Bang !, who celebrated his thirtieth career anniversary, was released in 2019.
