Sitting With Gianluca - Vincenzo Castellana (Sicilian roots music) July 24, 2013

from Sitting With Gianluca: From country-bluegrass-blues to CBGBs· ·

Vincenzo is a multi instrumentalist who plays roots music from his native Sicily. He is especially knowledgable but without a whiff of academia to him. We cover the super-natural and mystical side of roots music and how many early musicians were almost like shamans. Among the instruments he plays in our sit- down is a Sicilian tambourine. If you think the tambourine could never be a virtuoso instrument then think again!
