A Musical Welcome to Ciociaria

2 Oct

We spent our first morning (Saturday, Sept 28) painting at one of Italy’s national monuments, La Selva di Paliano…which, roughly translated, means, the wild place, or the natural place. La Selva is a bird refuge, with several small lakes.   After  a few hours taking in and translating the scenery on to our paper or canvas, the six painters were joined by the rest of our Discover Ciociaria colleagues and friends, as well as “amici” from the town of Paliano for a picnic with music.  Thanks to Simone Marucci, one of Paliano’s town councilmen, for arranging a “welcome to Ciociaria concert” by a group of musicians whose specialties are “salentina” music.  “Compari delle Cantine” of Paliano comprises a group of beautiful young Ciociare (Cho-CHAR-rey) determined to keep the traditions of Italian country music alive and well.

Here’s a slightly choppy video of the group performing for us.  Enjoy, Campari delle Cantine, from Paliano, Italy.
