OI DIPNOI (Sicily) in concert
Festival de Músicas del Mundo
Parque Santa Rosa de Apoquindo, Santiago del Chile
Jan. 20, h 22 – free admission
Hailing from Sicily (Italy), this charming trio draws deeply from the wells of tradition while creating a new sound full of personality. Born from an encounter between tradition and innovation, Oi Dipnoi’s music is rooted in traditional melodies of the region, where new themes are developed and sustained by the diatonic accordion, supported by a strong rhythmic section, with percussion and bass.
The “dipnoi” is a metaphor for the current music scene in Sicily: prehistoric fish/living fossils that have adapted for survival.
The trio is currently promoting their second album “Pontos”, released in January 2018. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this sensational Sicilian ensemble.
