about

Inspired by the different traditions of work songs worldwide, the songs recreate the call of voices rising in unison to the beat of a hammer or to the syncopated grinding of grain on the threshing floor. In work songs rhythm is the hand clap that keeps time to the crash of an axe or the thud of a pestle on a stone mortar. Inspired as much by Southern Mediterranean vocal traditions as those of African American origins, these four new compositions showcase Faccini's customary and original music without frontiers.

Piers Faccini France

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
