LUCANIA ETNO FOLK - INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF POPULAR MUSIC

Cultural location
The Lucania Etno Folk Festival was born and takes place in the town of Satriano di Lucania, the entrance gate to Basilicata through Campania and wrapped in the Valley of Melandro where one of the most beautiful villages of Basilicata stands.
A few years ago, a long-term project of a folk music festival called 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK' was born; Since 2010, this festival has been recognized as a consolidated event by the Basilicata Region. 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK' has been conceived for the enhancement of folk music, which is rooted in a particular ethnicity, population and geographic area.In Basilicata there are many groups that have searched for the origins of this popular music and carried on the tradition, including: Antonio Infantino, Tarantulati di Tricarico, Ethnos, Michele of Potenza, Amarimai and Agostino Gerardi. The musical groups that symbolize the folk tradition of Basilicata bring to the attention of the folk culture, origins and traditions, promoting them to the visitors, who,for the  occasion, populate the town and the territory,getting to know  classical instruments such as zampogna, tambourine,ciaramelle and the organ.
The 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK', performed yearly, invites the visitor to discover the places of the festival. The meeting of several local, national and international musicians allowed us
to increase the attendance of the event and the tourism flow through which the folk festival promotes the development of the economy and the enhancement of the territory.

Context The Lucania Etno Folk Festival was born and takes place in the town of Satriano di Lucania, the entrance gate to Basilicata through Campania and wrapped in the Valley of Melandro where one of the most beautiful villages of Basilicata stands.
A few years ago, a long-term project of a folk music festival called 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK' was born; Since 2010, this festival has been recognized as a consolidated event by the Basilicata Region. 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK' has been conceived for the enhancement of folk music, which is rooted in a particular ethnicity, population and geographic area.In Basilicata there are many groups that have searched for the origins of this popular music and carried on the tradition, including: Antonio Infantino, Tarantulati di Tricarico, Ethnos, Michele of Potenza, Amarimai and Agostino Gerardi.
The musical groups that symbolize the folk tradition of Basilicata bring to the attention of the folk culture, origins and traditions, promoting them to the visitors, who,for the  occasion, populate the town and the territory,getting to know  classical instruments such as zampogna, tambourine,ciaramelle and the organ.
The 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK', performed yearly, invites the visitor to discover the places of the festival. The meeting of several local, national and international musicians allowed us
to increase the attendance of the event and the tourism flow through which the folk festival promotes the development of the economy and the enhancement of the territory.
Description of the managment mode Under the artistic programs of EUGENIO BENNATO, a CD compilation entitled 'LUCANIA ETNO-FOLK' was performed and built by the groups that played at the festival, with classical and folk songs of popular music .
The cultural, educational, social, historical-environmental purpose is the demonstration of the logical connection relationship that becomes a useful vehicle to  increase attendance which,through activities and promotions, allows events, both individually and as a whole, to be a tool for the real development of the local economy, linked to the  tourism flows.
The LUCANIA ETNO FOLK has the ambition to pursue what is lacking, the launch of that folk, which, starting from Basilicata, involves a large number of tourists of all ages, attracted by the uniqueness of places and the hospitality of its inhabitants.
Starting from the classical instruments of popular music, such as the tambourine, ciarmelle, zampogne and organ, the healthy contamination of pop music has been inserted.
Combining the sounds, rhythms and dances of different ethnicities, 'LUCANIA ETNO FOLK' aims to bring together regional, national and international traditions and cultures.
Significant features It is a festival aimed to protect and safeguard the popular music tradition. Local and regional musical heritage is promoted through confrontation and contamination with the musical traditions of other regions and with international experiences as well.

Community participation
To stimulate the community participation in the preparation of the event, a number of community workers will be involved in the theater, musical, literature and rural architecture field. At the same time, the schools of St Mauro Forte and neighboring countries will be involved and also the ANPI sections of Italy, the University of Basilicata, the University of Rome "La Sapienza" chair of Ethnomusicology and the music conservatory of Matera. Since the Mediterranean Centre  of arts is funded by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, we count on building synergies with both the Basilicata Region and the Ministry
