EVOCAZIONI E INVOCAZIONI – RITUAL SONGS FROM ASTROMONTE Davide Ambrogio skillfully captures the vast tapestry of Mediterranean culture, spanning from Albania to Greece, from Italy to the Arab world. Raised in a small town in Aspromonte, a mountainous territory in the extreme southwest of Italy, in Calabria, Davide was surrounded by ancient religious rituals and devotional chants that are still very much alive.

Tethered to his Calabrian roots, he drew inspiration from the oral traditions of the region to create his distinctive musical language. Aspromonte is the artist’s birthplace and where he lived for over twenty years. At its feet lies a Calabria still rich in ancient knowledge and traditions, preserved by the mountains.

In this region, time and space hold a unique value, and the word ‘community’ revolves around shared language and togetherness. Amidst the harmonies of words, the calls of animals, the resonance of bagpipes, the rhythms of dance, the distant hum of cars, and the trickling waters of the Fiumara, everything coalesces into a unified dance and song. Here, a profound connection exists between sound and people, contributing to a shared narrative that transcends individual elements in a seamless tapestry of culture and tradition.

Songwriting and Music:

  • Davide Ambrogio
