Duo Bottasso - Crescendo (Italy 2014) @320

Piedmont born Simone (diatonic accordion) and Nicolò Bottasso (fiddle) are confident and conscious musicians, who deeply master the grammar of traditional styles. What’s more, they don’t stand still, for them tradition is not to be placed untouched in a museum. Simone and Nicolò Bottasso play contemporary folk music, whose geographical boundaries sometimes become blurred.

The Bottasso brothers, Nicolò on violin and Simone on diatonic accordion, play a show of world music with their own compositions and reinterpretations of folk songs. The Duo is always looking for a compromise between the delicacy on their instruments and the explosive energy that never fails to these two young musicians: all this combined with the complicity of this two brothers bound by the desire to keep evolving the tradition of their homeland.

In 2014 Duo Bottasso releases his first album Crescendo, featuring Elena Ledda, Mauro Palmas, Gilson Silveira and many others guests. Cresendo symbolizes both the music dynamics and a the story of two brother musicians firmly rooted in the dance music of the Occitan area in Italy, aiming at the adeventuring in the paths of new compositions and improvisation.The Duo played in many important festivals and works as directors and teachers for the orchestral project Folkestra&Folkoro.
