Biography

Municipale Balcanica is a band from Puglia, Italy. They play a synthesis of many kinds of music, including Romany, klezmer, jazz, and various Mediterranean traditions.

At the beginning the band, made up of ten musicians, was mostly influenced by Balkan traditions, playing such well-known tunes as “Hava Nagila”, “Ale Brider”, and “Odessa Bulgarish”, but very soon the approach to the old traditional tunes became much more unusual and distinctive, because the musicians have their own musical backgrounds, very different each fom the other. For example the whole wind section of Municipale Balcanica learnt to play in the old brass band of the little town they live in. Their style is perhaps best represented by the original compositions, mainly written by jazz-pianist Livio Minafra.
