"Kalàscima feat. Andrea Ramolo" Kalàscima featuring Andrea Ramolo is an exciting international collaboration of world music in the Italian language featuring internationally renowned southern Italian electronic/folk band Kalàscima and multiple Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and alternative songwriter Andrea Ramolo.

The musical collaboration and studio album The South served as the soundtrack for Ramolo’s award-winning music documentary by the same name starring the band. Last summer, the collaboration headlined "Vancouver Folk Music Festival, played Calgary Folk Festival, Northern Lights Festival, Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Ness Creek Music Festival," and more.

Their joint show was created with the intention of introducing audiences to the ancestral and folk music of southern Italy… but with a twist Kalàscima blends Italian hip hop, folk, traditional, Balkan, and other Mediterranean sounds with electronic music. With Andrea’s soulful voice and connection to the traditional music and dance of southern Italy, this project promises to get crowds jumping and dancing in a Mediterranean-style trance.

Goat-skin hand drums, Italian bagpipes, accordion, Bouzouki, baritone sax, multiple harmonies, drums, synth, and electronic sounds as well as the soul and passion of southern Italy is returning to Canada this summer!
