"They're not a choir, they're a force of nature!"
Biography founded in 1996 to perform for the play EMMA celebrazione by Graham Pitts the choir was originally an 8 week community project but grew into a more long standing firm project. Based at Co.As.It in Carlton we practise every Monday Night.
Description We are a sassy group of women ( about 30-50 )who sing the Italian popular and folk tradition from a vocal repetoire that traverses the length and breadth of Italy and goes from the 21st century back to the 1500's. Our performance- lyrical and rhythmic,raucous and sweet,earthy and heavenly bring together the harmonies from a group of Italian migrant women who have made Australia their home.We were founded and directed by ARIA award winning musician Kavisha Mazzella from 1995-2013. Now we are directed by Elvira Andreoli. We are also accompanied by multi instrumentalist Phil Carrol on Accordion, Phil is one of Melbourne's most respected musicians in the World Music scene playing Turkish Ney and silver flute as well.
Our songs are of the harvest and factory, from bedroom to the grave, the cradle together with wedding songs, revolutionary songs, religious and pagan feasts of Old Italy. Whether it's seduction, or waiting for the harvest, Protest or Lament the songs are sung with sweetness and earthy energy.
Some examples from our repetoire include :Bella Ciao, Mazzolin di Fiori, Va Pensiero, Angellare, Maggio,Vola Colomba amongst many others.
