This project is a result of the encounter of three musicians who share a common interest for traditional and popular music as well as improvisation and research practise. Their repertoire is including traditional songs from their own homeland, Catalunya and Piemonte, and some original pieces composed on dialectal texts. The chosen songs generally reveal an incredible affinity of language and narrative themes.DinDùn proposes a music that is balancing between ethnic and contemporary sounds in order to maintain the purity and incantation of ancient voices.
Alessandra Patrucco is a singer and composer. She writes music and texts and lives between Torino and Barcelona. As composer and performer she has created a unique language that crosses different genres and that stands out for its poetry, elements of surprise and playfulness. These are the characterising elements of her music. All of her projects have in common the interest for the popular and jazz traditions and for vocal and electronics experimentations. She has recorded the album “Circus” with the Icp Orchestra, a well established band of the Dutch vanguard, and “Varda la Luna” with Sasà, a music group from Piemonte, that has been defined by World Music Magazine as “One of the few authentic and surprising releases of 2007”. The most recent experiences and collaborations to highlight are: the Jur Naessens Music Award (Nederlands), the Aftershock/Festival Marsatack (Marseille), an international project of ethnic and electronics contaminations directed by the Londoner musician Nitin Shawney, the Festival Internazionale del Libro di Torino for Lingua Madre with Puisija, the Festival OperaEstate of Bassano, the Festival Short Theatre (Roma) and the Dispositivo Campo Magnetico (Barcellona). She has also connections with theatre. More recently, she has collaborated with the choreographer Roberto Castello and the actress and theatre director Lorena Senestro (Teatro della Caduta) with whom she will debut with the performance “Admurese” within the season 2011-2012 of Torino’s Teatro Stabile.
