In the Bag - Fabio Resta

Fabio graduated from the University of Bologna with a thesis in ethnomusicology on the Macedonian kaval in 2016 and has always been involved in traditional music, exploring the repertoire and performance practices of flutes, bagpipes and percussion of the Near East (kaval and gajda in Macedonia, ney in Turkey ) and of the European Middle Ages. Particularly interested in the music of oral tradition, he made several trips to the Balkans and Turkey, where music is still taught respecting a traditional path, assimilating the different modal languages and the practices that unite the music scene of the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
