UARAGNIAUN IN CONCERT
AUG. 16 IN NEW YORK CITY
UARAGNIAUN is the name of a group of musicians who reprise old traditional popular
music from the South of Italy , in par-ticular songs collected in the hinterland of Puglia ,
the Alta Murgia area. UARAGNIAUN is the old name of GARAGNONE, which is a big
rock of the Alta Murgia. According to an old legend, this rock was cut by the paladin
Roland’s sword. The group was founded 25 years ago by Maria Moramarco, Luigi
Bolognese and Silvio Teot. Coming from different musical experiences they have
studied Mediterranean popular harmonies getting to an original musical style.
Maria Moramarco, the lead singer of the group has done field research and recorded
lots of old songs handed down orally from past generations, acquiring rare musical
materials that she interprets and produces in her group performances. She has been in
contact with other researchers and popular music performers such as Otello Profazio,
Ambrogio Sparagna, Daniele Sepe and Piero Ricci. The group, together with other
musicians, has given performances in Italy and abroad. UARAGNIAUN is a group
open to the collaboration of other musicians who give their musical creative
contributions that enrich the musical performances of the group .
