Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker

For several years Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker have worked on transcriptions and reinterpretations of traditional folksongs from their birthplace, the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy. One of the strongest influences was the repertory of choirs of female rice-field workers, the “Mondine”.

In their music, the songs emerge through sounds far from tradition, rooted in contemporary musical experimentation. Touched by the evocative power of these female voices and the strength of their community life experience, they sketch an emotional territory where our relationship with the geographical coordinates and the history of the region Emilia resonates with other sounds, other places.

For this special performance Silvia and Deborah will be joined on stage by Glasgow’s Glad Community Choir.
