The music of Cantodiscanto is inspired by a gaze towards the South. First and foremost towards the South of Italy whose traditional and classical repertoires the group has studied in depth. This is the South from which the group comes and to which it is attached, the South to which the language of their songs belongs: Neapolitan. South America is a source of inspiration for the group as well, and is present in their music with its rhythms and harmonies. But their gaze is also turned towards another South, a South of the world that brings together all those who live in hardship or in a state of emergency, subject to the will of those few who make the decisions; a South where people continue to sing out their love and their desire to be free and to live in peace. It is towards this South that the group’s lyrics make their references: fragments of stories, journeys, meetings that mix in music the past and the present.
