Hailing from Sicily, this extraordinary trio draws deeply from the wells of tradition while creating a new sound full of energy and charm.
Born from the encounter between tradition and innovation, Oi Dipnoi's music is rooted in traditional melodies of the region, where new themes are developed and sustained by the diatonic accordion, supported by the Nakaira rhythmic section, with percussion and bass. The "dipnoi" is a metaphor for the current music scene in Sicily: prehistoric fish / living fossils that have adapted for survival.
Joining Oi Dipnoi for this special re-union show are Melbourne's own purveyors of contemporary southern Italian folk, Santa Taranta, fresh from touring and releasing their debut full length record Sete.
Come along for a night of dancing and maybe some singing!
