The Band

Andrea Capezzuoli e Compagnia is a band based in Milan, whose members joined together back in 2007, and can now be considered as a point of reference in the Italian folk music landscape.

Stories, legends, songs, ballads and dances from northern Italy are enriched with musical flavours (melodies and rhythms) coming from all corners of Europe and from America: these can be the romantic flavours of French mazurkas, as well as the energetic ones of the Qeubec reels.

The Andrea Capezzuoli e Compagnia music is a blend of innovation and tradition, which engages and enchants the audience, guiding them through a playful musical journey, full of complicity and joy, in the full spirit of a country folk festival during which people can enjoy really good music.

Melodeons, guitars and fiddle are accompanied by the foot-stumping as a percussion and this gives to the sound of the band a unique touch.

The band has an outstanding and long lasting experience also in the folk dance environment. The repertoire covers many European traditional dances as well as dances and music coming from Québec. The concert can be complemented and completed by the presence of the ‘caller’, the master of ceremonies who guides the dancers through their choreographies.
