Albumrecensie

Alan Lomax, the man who apparently never slept in the 1950s in his quest to document various forms of international folk music throughout the world, made Italy his stop in the spring of 1953. For the next year he journeyed throughout the country with Diego Carpitella, recording in Sicily, Calabria, Sardinia, and several other regions. Italy is a large country with diverse folk musics, and it's impossible to generalize, even in a sweeping manner, about the nature of the sounds documented on this disc — which was, of course, one of the points of Lomax's expeditions.
