Palermo

A City And Its Music

Palermo - Full of history and tradition. A town full of markets, coffeehouses and joie de vivre. No other town was avoided as much as this one. It was once the mafia’s stronghold, a place of decline and chaos. Since then, it has survived and got rid off its scars. The town has also been restored; reborn, we might say. "Palermo" is the very image of Sicilian beauty: full of life and contradictions, and thus is also quite close to the spirit of the town. A well-balanced mix of traditional Sicilian folk music, different forms of tarantella tunes, from "belle canzoni" to music from Luchino Visconti's "The Leopard" as well as the opera "Cavalleria Rusticana” in a recording with Maria Callas.
