On the first Saturday of July, the second edition of Wine and Taranta Fest returns after the great success of last year, with an exceptional master like Eugenio Bennato who in fact baptized this beautiful festival of good music and excellent wine. This year we want to give it a different theme, if in the previous edition it was the theme of irpine wineries and art, now beyond the reportage of great music, the theme will focus on the march of the brigands in our areas, from 1800 to today. Four years after the last unreleased album, the Modena City Ramblers return with the new album Mani come rami, roots roots, released on March 10 for Modena City Records, with Believe distribution, cd and vinyl Limited. The Emilian band chose this time to go on new roads, realizing the album entirely on its own, with the only extraordinary exception of the collaboration with the American band Calexico, who in the My Ghost Town ballad, Typical sound of MRCs, waving between Celtic sounds and Tziganic atmospheres. In contrast, in contrast to the double cd of 2013 Nothing Again on the Western Front, in which the band had produced 18 tracks closely linked to chronicle episodes and historical events, in these new 13 tracks there is no reference to Explicit contexts or current events. The rhythm and energy of El senor Tex and Ragas pin de stras, evocative ballads like the title track Hands in your pockets, branches in the woods, the nostalgic nostalgic punk of Gaucho, me and you, beyond At the aforementioned My Ghost Town, are the best episodes of a record that fully reflects the consistency and tradition of a band that has been dancing and dreaming for fans for more than twenty-five years, mixing styles and languages, Poetry and irony, in a unique way and still unparalleled within the Italian music scene free concert, tasting local products, Food and Wine

Basilicata is embedded between Calabria and Apulia , in the south of Italy. One does not stumble across this region accidentally but chooses to visit it if in search of a new experience, plunging into places where silence, colours, scents and flavours remove the visitor from the frenzy and stress of modern life, offering unique sensations. The woods and forests that cover the mountains are dotted with small and charming villages, some even at an altitude of 1000 mt, where pure air, genuine flavours and the beauties of nature are combined with historical vestiges satisfying any wish. Beautiful, yet not very explored, is the area of the Monticchio Lakes, one of the most spectacular locations in Basilicata. Lake Grande and Lake Piccolo, are two splendid stretches of water that fill the two craters of Mount Vulture, now extinct, and are surrounded by thick and lush vegetation. Even though it is a mainly internal region, Basilicata is on two seas: the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Sea. The Ionic coast, with the two famous sea resorts of Metaponto and Policoro, offers wide beaches, either sandy or pebbly, partially surrounded by pinewoods and rows of eucalyptus that give off a lovely scent. The Gulf of Policastro, on the Tyrrhenian side, has higher and more indented coasts, where steep promontories alternate with small beaches, washed by a crystal-clear sea. The provinces of the region are Potenza (regional capital) and Matera.
