Le duo des frères Bottasso, Nicolo au violon et Simone à l’acordéon diatonique est sans cesse à la recherche d'un équilibre entre la délicatesse instrumentale et l'énergie explosive qui ne manque jamais aux deux jeunes musiciens. Leur complicité et leur désir de maintenir en constante évolution les origines traditionnelles de leur musique participent à la richesse musicale de leur travail.

La création d'une ou plusieurs pièces avec, pour point de départ, des mélodies traditionnelles italiennes et de la world musique.

Public visé
Le stage est ouvert à tout instrument et aux musiciens de tous styles de musiques

Stage d'accordeon avec Jean-Marc Rohart - France

by Diatonic News
jean-marc rohartStage d'accordéon diatonique à Villard de Lans
"autour de la mélodie"
du 6 au 12 août 2017


Gîte La Montanara - visitez le site
Les Chaberts 38250 Villard de Lans.

Programme : Les cours d'accordéon diatonique sont ouverts à tous niveaux, du débutant au confirmé. Mon approche est principalement orientée sur l'harmonie, les accords et leur relation à la mélodie.

D'une part parce la logique du clavier rend simple les positions d'accords sur l'instrument, d'autre part et surtout parce que cela permet une plus grande indépendance, ne pas jouer "de routine", mais en comprenant ce que l'on joue, dans quelle gamme on se trouve, quelle position d'accord correspond à la note jouée et quelle est la relation entre cette note et l'accord qui lui correspond.

Les accords permettant d'accompagner la mélodie, nous étudions également des rythmiques et des arpèges pour enrichir son jeu, mais aussi pour jouer à deux (ou plus) sans être à l'unisson et en travaillant des arrangements.

Les accords permettent également l'accompagnement de chansons du répertoire traditionnel, mais ce peut être aussi bien Brassens, Anne Sylvestre, Félix Leclerc...

À un niveau plus avancé, nous travaillons les bases de l'improvisation.

Le travail se fait principalement d'oreille et avec le support de la partition. Il n'est pas nécessaire de connaître le solfège.

Tango workshop - Holland/France

by Diatonic News

Frankrijk 5 – 12 aug
Een week lang tango spelen, dansen en yoga in La Douce France op het landgoed van La Maison Neuve (Chatellerault) van 5 tot 12 augustus.

MUZIEK
De muziekworkshop staat open voor (semi) gevorderde en professionele musici. De ensembles en arrangementen worden gemaakt en gevormd naar het niveau van de spelers. Je krijgt op voorhand de partituren tot je beschikking zodat je de tijd hebt om de stukken voor te bereiden.

Tijdens deze week spelen we het traditionele tangorepertoire en nieuwe composities, en maak je zodanig kennis met de ritmische, melodische en harmonische rijkdom van de tango. Elke avond is er een milonga (tangosalon) waar we het ingestudeerde repertoire zullen uitvoeren.

Naast de ensembles is er elke dag een korte lezing over tangomuziek met uniek beeldmateriaal.

Om deel te nemen is het niet noodzakelijk te weten hoe je tango moet spelen. De workshop wordt gegeven door Kay Sleking (gitaar/contrabas/bandoneón).

Vancouver Folk Musik Festival - Canada

by Diatonic News
The Vancouver Folk Music Festival is a Canadian cultural institution – a unique community-based celebration with an internationally-renowned reputation for presenting the finest traditional and contemporary folk and roots music artists from around the world. Now in its 40th year, it continues to be one of the city’s most beloved, enjoyed, and respected events – named “Best Local Music Festival” by Georgia Straight readers for the fifth year in a row, and 2016 “Best Music Festival” by readers of the Westender. The Festival draws 38,000+ enthusiastic attendees annually to beautiful Jericho Beach Park, folks eager to experience the music and culture of more than 60 international, national, and local acts. Every year, two and even three generations of families join friends and fellow community members to share in the music, dance, food, children’s activities – and the magical ambience of the festival.

The Festival was founded in 1978 and held in Stanley Park. It relocated to Jericho Beach Park in its second year. Sponsored by the city the first two years, the festival came under the control of the newly established, non-profit Vancouver Folk Music Festival Society late in 1979. In its early years the festival established and ran its own record label and distribution company, Festival Records.

Over the years the Vancouver Folk Music Festival has played a key role in the development of artists and audiences on a regional, national and international level. The society continues to honour the same traditions with an emphasis on emerging and diverse artists.

New Road @ Gooikoorts - Belgium

by Diatonic News
New Road
Zondag 9 juli - 15u45

Le groupe New Road a vu le jour il y a un peu plus de trois ans comme émanation de l’album du même nom enregistré par Leonard Barry et auquel tous les membres du groupe actuel participaient. Depuis lors, ils se sont produits aux Celtic Connections à Glasgow, à plusieurs festivals en Belgique, en France et bien évidemment dans leur pays d’origine, l’Irlande.

Le groupe New Road présente un mélange de musique trad irlandaise, d’old-time country des Appalaches, de blues et d’autres ingrédients. Sa musique combine passion, exubérance, profondeur et beauté, tout cela en partage avec ses auditeurs.

La formation est constituée de Leonard Barry (uilleann pipes, whistles), Rick Epping (harmonica, concertina, 5-string banjo, guimbarde, chant), Andy Morrow (violon) et Seamie O’Dowd (guitare, mandoline, violon, chant), autant de virtuoses qui ont foulé la scène avec des artistes tels que Luka Bloom, Christy Moore, Dervish, John Spillane, Bill Monroe…

The Revelers @ Water Front Blues Festival- USA

by Diatonic News
The Revelers
THE REVELERS, a Louisiana supergroup created by founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys—unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance—combines swamp-pop, Cajun, country, blues and zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music that could only come from southwest Louisiana.

As individuals they are each in high demand, having performed and recorded with T-Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant and Linda Ronstadt, to name a few. They all appeared on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations,” and they also were handpicked by David Simon, producer and creator of “The Wire” to be featured musicians for the third and fourth seasons of HBO’s “Tremé.”

The depth of this band developed from digging deep into the dancehall traditions of southwest Louisiana and emerging with an arsenal that blurs the lines between traditional and original, Cajun, country, zydeco, swamp-pop, and the blues. Equally at home on a festival main stage, a late night dance party, or a performing arts hall, THE REVELERS have taken their mission coast to coast in the U.S. and around the world from Ireland to Denmark, to their own Black Pot Festival in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Orchestrona di Folrimpopoli – Romagna - Italia

by Diatonic News
ORCHESTRONA DI FORLIMPOPOLI
Spilimbergo – Piazza Garibaldi – Venerdì 7 luglio, 22.45

L’Orchestrona della Scuola di Musica Popolare è, al tempo stesso, un corso di musica d’insieme ed il gruppo di rappresentanza della scuola stessa. Un progetto che nasce circa vent’anni fa da un’idea di Davide Castiglia, oggi direttore del gruppo, che ha voluto realizzare una formazione assolutamente atipica, una commistione ben riuscita tra una banda ed un’orchestra che non è in realtà nessuna delle due, essendo composta esclusivamente da strumenti insegnati nella scuola. Oltre venti elementi, tra organetti, fisarmoniche, violini, violoncelli, cornamuse, flauti, chitarre, arpe, contrabbassi e percussioni… tutti insieme appassionatamente per offrire ai ballerini popolari un repertorio di danze per far muovere i piedi e il cuore!

Korrotzi @ Vancouver Folk Festival - Canada/Spain

by Diatonic News
The Korrontzi folk band from the Basque Country in Northern Spain was formed back in 2004 by trikitixa (Basque diatonic accordion) player, Agus Barandiaran. He wanted to give Basque and Biscayan folk music and Basque ancestral and traditional sounds a more contemporary feel, while not straying too far from a musical heritage based on the trikitixa and other ancient instruments like the txalaparta (percussion) and alboka (woodwind).

To that end, the group incorporated varied contemporary and mainstream instruments such as the mandolin, bass guitar, electric contrabass and other percussion, and musical influences from around the globe, to create great Basque roots music with a global flair.

The band takes their name from an old trikitixa player who used to go from his farm on donkey to the Biscay town of Mungia’s main square and back every Sunday – bringing cheer to the villagers who gathered there to listen to his songs.

The group has shared that same joy in their culture, language, dance and music with folks all around the world to applause and great acclaim. Now, to us, Korrontzi brings the rich tapestry of colours and landscapes found in traditional Basque music & dance with a unique and forward-looking vision. Prepare to be enthralled!

Le groupe Elanor est une initiative de Bert Leemans. Il connaissait Bart Praet de longue date, car ils avaient l’habitude de faire de la musique chaque mercredi à Gooik. Et Thomas Hoste était aussi une de ses anciennes connaissances. Mais il manquait un guitariste et un bassiste. Pas évident à trouver. Par le groupe ‘Pourquoi-pas’, Bert a fait la connaissance de Kuni Quintens, qui était enthousiaste à rejoindre le nouvel ensemble. Lors d’une fête chez Sophie Cavez, Bert est entré en contact avec Jelle Van Cleemputte et désormais le groupe était au complet.
Elanor a pour principe de présenter des compositions originales et d’éviter les reprises de morceaux connus. Bart fournit la plupart des mélodies, mais les arrangements sont le fruit d’un travail collectif. Processus intensif s’il en est : affiner la mélodie, concocter des variations, mettre au point un solide accompagnement, insérer des stops et des transitions, … Tous les membres du groupe y prennent activement part. C’est là une caractéristique d’Elanor et un facteur déterminant de son ‘sound’.

Ce sound repose en partie sur la symbiose entre la vièle à roue et la cornemuse. Voilà une combinaison peu commune que les solistes fignolent davantage par un choix judicieux d’instruments à vent (flûte traversière, flûte baroque, uilleann pipes, cornemuse flamande, gaita, whistles, …). Côté accompagnement, la basse et la guitare en DADGAD – encore une alliance insolite – génèrent un groove méga puissant. Tout cela est complété par l’accordéon, qui établit un lien idéal entre la mélodie et l’accompagnement. Pas de percussion chez Elanor, car la section rythmique fournit l’assise indispensable à la musique de bal. Par ce choix délibéré d’instruments et les arrangements raffinés et variés, le groupe plait tant aux amateurs de musique qu’aux danseurs.

CD "Tangology" Paolo Russo & Ensemble MidtVest - Denmark

by Diatonic News
Tangology is a collaboration between composer and bandoneonist Paolo Russo and the Danish Ensemble MidtVest.
Description:
Tangology is the story of an imaginary journey that has one very unusual protagonist, an instrument. The instrument is a bandonéon, a special Argentine accordion who is a Tango's supporting instrument. Or more precisely, the instrument is his soul. The spirit of the music moves on a peaceful path that stretches through dream and spirituality,
Between the actual and the amazing, in a continuum of feelings and feelings. With a distant and nostalgic echo of the Argentine tango taken by Paolo Russo

Paolo Russo was born in Pescara, Italy, in 1969, educated pianist and has lived in Copenhagen since 1996. through the last 20 years he has been hyperactive in music with performances throughout Europe as well as Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Russia, USA, Cuba and many more. Russo started playing bandoneón in 2001 and felt that he had found a whole new way of expressing himselfand began using this instrument more and more often.

He has released 10 Solo albums and contributed in about 50 albums, including in cooperation with Stefano Bollani, Etta Cameron and Pablo Ziegler and others.

In addition, Russo works as a composer and soloist for String orchestras, symphony orchestras as well as movies, theater and television.
