The Musica dei Popoli Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary and opens the window to the musical traditions of the world.

fatoumataIn the historical venue of the Auditorium FLOG Musica dei Popoli welcomes many guests from all over the world, bringing traditional and popular European and non-European music to the stage.
In its long journey, artists from the classical music traditions from India, Iran, Japan and the Arab world performed at the Flog. The festival had the merit of having presented - in some cases for the first time in Italy - the great masters of musical traditions, both "cultured" and "popular", from all over the world.

Proudly this small festival, which boasts the distinction of being the first international festival of ethnic and folkloric music in Italy and one of the first ethnomusical festivals in the world, resisted various crises, reaching an absolutely respectable age: 40 years and with a great future ahead.

The 2019 edition sees Enzo Avitabile on the opening night on October 4th: a Neapolitan artist who, in his incredible and multifaceted career, has spent time and energy searching for a new sound.
International guests include J.P.Bimeni & The Black Belts, a Burundi-born refugee soul artist; the Barmer Boys from Rajasthan; Girma Bèyènè from Ethiopia, the Mongolian musicians Egschiglen. And then the Touareg Tinariwen from Mali, and from the same African country Fatoumata Diawara closes the festival: she is one of the most vital representatives of contemporary African music.

Musica dei Popoli from October 4 to November 29 at Auditorium Flog, Florence.
