20:30 – Folk a busso!

Folk a busso! was born with the aim to spread again the liscio of Filuzzi among young people in the Italian balfolk scene giving a new look to old music that is no longer in use. The band members are: Nicolò Quercia at the accordion, a young cadet from the Bolognese Filuzzi, Nicholas Marturini at the clarinet, Giovanni Varelli at guitar, Corrado Varelli at bass and Devis Fabbri at drums. They also introduce, outside the typical Filuzzi‘s sound, some liscio songs from the mountains in which the clarinet (detached dances) has a key role; their repertoire also includes some mountain balli staccati from the Bolognese Appennines and part of the Modena area where the Filuzzi was born. They believe that the correct way to introduce the Filuzzi to young people is to re-establish the rythms of original performances which, compared to how the Filuzzi is played nowadays, are far faster. The other perspective is to strictly comply with traditional dance rules while introducing new musical  influences.
