Sud Sound System

The story of Sud Sound System before the 90’s is the story of a group of young people from the Salento region and their unconditional love for reggae in an area of southern Italy that is far removed from the mainstream music “circuits” and at the same time so rich in culture and Mediterranean traditions.

The use of local dialect is an integral part of Sud Sound System’s music. Such a use is not a choice: you can choose to sing in English, considering it to be an appropriate language for music, but you can’t choose something which is part of your character, part of your daily vocabulary. The local dialect is not the only linguistic expression used in Salento reggae, but it is however the most natural choice because it is part of the artists themselves.

In June 1991, the 12” “Fuecu/T’a sciuta bona” was released and its impact on the Italian music scene was certainly noticeable; this record, like few others in that period, had something new to say. It was a unique record for its musical freshness due to its use of the Salento dialect combined with reggae rhythms. It consequently met with great success.

1992 saw the release of two 12” records: one with the tracks “Reggae Internazionale” and “Punnu Ieu,” the other with “Turcinieddhri” and “Chiappalu.

    Ma piantala. E' la cosa più imbarazzante d'Italia assieme a Berlusca e a Sanremo giovani (sì,perfino il Sanremo big è più dignitoso dei SSS)

    I sud sono semplicemente mi-ti-ci!! Da notare come Dago-C nel suo commento razzista abbia scritto NEGRO e non NERO... mamma mamma che gentaglia che esiste ancora!!
