If you were born in Rome, Italy, you can’t be immune to the spirit of this city: in BandaJorona folk and neo-folk, with a capitoline matrix, meet electronic vibes, involving texts who go from social denunciation to a private approach, from political to demotic. All brings an innovative and eclectic project to life, where a female impact is very clear.
BandaJorona’s constant evolution in the research for sounds and lyrics comes to evidence taking a look at the new post-pandemic team, where traditional and popular musics migrate toward rhythmic and sound frameworks in their max bpm power, thanks to a massive use of audio sampling and synthesizers. They make the most creative energetic dialogue with the narrating diatonic accordion. The collective intervention to the musical production shows itself in the group’s folktronic scenario, which gets more mature with a wider artistic and intellectual experimentation, on the way to its fourth album, close to being launched. Jorona’s strong personality and voice, the band’s founder and storyteller, will be the usual guidance.
Neverending research, audience and critics’ appreciation and loads of original artistic performances keep the band among the main representatives of the “Nuova Canzone Romana”, always following the same great goal: singing the reality of our jagged current times.
