Liguria: Baiardo and Imperia Historic recordings featuring the spectacular vocal polyphony of western Liguria, a region of ports and hill towns, rich in folkloric traditions. This CD includes sung narratives, including selections from the remarkable 'A barca' ceremonial ballad cycle of Baiardo, as well as instrumental dances from the port city of Imperia. Italian Treasury In 1954, Alan Lomax and Diego Carpitella set out on a yearlong voyage of discovery that resulted in an exhaustive documentation of Italian folk music. 'It was a mythic time. None of us suspected that that world

made of music, songs, poverty, joy, desperation, custom, violence, injustice, love, dialect, and poetry, formed over the course of millennia

would be swept away in a couple of years . . . by the voodoo of 'progress.''

Vittorio De Seta.
