Landmarks of folk music in the Alps | FR | 26 08 2022 | 17:30

Musicians Silvio Perón and Gabriel Ferrero traveled 14 valleys with an organito (accordion) and violin. Some of these valleys branch off into the mountains southwest of Turin, while the rest of the narrow passes find their entrance behind Cuneo. In all these Valli Occitane, there were different traditions of playing the violin until the early 1990s, various pieces for the smallest groups, mostly in duets with a harmonica player.

What all these musical traditions have in common is the function of music. The game was played mainly on simple balls, which were used for entertainment after hard work on the farm. Thanks to Silvio Peron and Gabriele Ferrero, these pieces were “preserved”, that is, they were transcribed and immortalized on the sound carriers by the playing of young musicians.
