we introduce ourselves: we are a family (father and mother, both young at
heart and two daughters, 24 and 21) and living in South-Tyrol, a German
and Italian speaking area in Northern Italy, where we are quite well known
as a Renaissance band making early music in a captivate "folky"
We are a big success in castles, concert halls and on television as well.
This was La Zag at the end of the 90's...
We use reconstructions of historical instruments and modern ones, too, as you can see:
•Franco Ferrarese (bagpipe, shawm, chalumeau, crumhorn, recorder, saz, rhythmic guitar)
•Elfriede Rungg-Ferrarese (hurdy-gurdy, string tambourine, recorder, diatonic button accordion, percussion)
•Anna Florina Ferrarese (ethnic and classic percussion, recorder, diatonic button accordion)
•Anna Viola Ferrarese (violin, string tambourine, percussion)
Besides instrumental music: singing in harmony is our hit with the public!
Playing medieval and Renaissance music in a lively and "folky" way went along with making music of our own. Taking our European roots - melodic and harmonic structures found in early music - and combining them with elements of pop and ethnic music - and here they are: multilingual historical-folk-songs of great appeal with the public.
