Bifólc - Bal Fólc (Italy 2012) @320

A pair of musicians attracted by traditional popular culture and by a glass or two of good red wine, all the better if in an old fashioned pub around a table with good friends, playing music and telling tales...
In december 2006 Stefano Guagnini and Gianluca Cavallotto become Bifòlc.
Their repertoire? A beautiful mixture of music and songs that invite dancing and listening alike. These are from regions such as Piedmont, the Occitan regions of both France and Italy( Italian Occitan valleys, Quercy, Auvergne, Gascoigne) and all the way to Poitou, Vandée and Brittany.
In other words, all the necessary ingredients for a “bal fòlc”, a street party or more simply

    ...a cellar drinking session !
