The Italian South meets the American South as Michela Musolino, with voice and traditional frame drum, joined by rockabilly guitar and folk accordion, combines the musical traditions of Sicily with those of the American South for an afternoon of roots music that will make your toes tap and your heart sing.
Michela Musolino has been internationally lauded for her unique ability to reimagine Sicilian folk and roots music, alchemized with renowned American musical genres, to mirror the history and movement of people and their musical traditions from the Old World to the New. Musolino has sung in medieval castles and Sicilian temples, NYC landmarks, honky-tonks, and national folk festivals drawing in listeners and connecting them in a brotherhood of shared raw human emotions and experiences, all expressed in the songs of her repertoire.
