We call ourselves Le Tre Sorelle that means "the three sisters", but in fact we are two cousins and a great friend with a strong love in common: the traditional music of southern Italy.
We started to play and sing together almost for fun at family-led parties, spontaneously getting passionate about the popular genre. In 2012 the project became official and we started to "get serious", performing on numerous stages and in various festivals throughout Italy and abroad.
Our trio is characterized by a repertoire of polyphonic songs of the South, performed in a chapel or with the accompaniment of numerous traditional instruments: frame drums, accordion, Calabrian lyre, beating guitar, violin and minor percussion.
The music we play is the result of a constant study made possible not only by the precious recordings and publications existing on the subject, but above all by the meeting with musicians and researchers that we had the luck and the pleasure of meeting on our musical journey.
What we want to convey is our passion for this music, making you excited to listen to slower and more introspective songs, but also to make you dance and unleash the rhythm of pizzica and tarantella, with the harmony and genuineness of our trio, born from the common passion for traditional southern music and the enthusiasm of wanting to transmit it.
