A hypnotic sound, halfway between a piano, a harpsichord and a guitar. The metal ropes were beaten by two thin wooden sticks, covered with cotton. An instrument with an ancient history, the cymbalom: it was brought by the Crusaders from the East, and over time it became prince of much gypsy music, as well as of the popular repertoire and klezmer of Central Europe. That’s the basis of Baraccone Express’ sound research, a quartet that cymbalom alongside the clarinet and alto sax, soprano flugelhorn and trumpet, voice and double bass. There are many paths: the music of Paolo Xeres, cymbalist and drummer, the references to the world of soundtracks such as those of Nino Rota or Spaghetti Western, the forays into gypsy music and the paths of Old Time Jazz.
A toast to the street art, to the music of travelers and caravans: from 2011 to today, the quartet has played in festivals, festivals of street arts, clubs, parties and events, with original arrangements and an unplugged sound, deliberately acoustic.
