CHOIRS AND FOLK SONGS FESTIVAL

Piazza Santa Fara, Chiostro Abbazia San Colombano
Description
Event organised by the municipality of Bobbio with the sponsorship of the Province of Piacenza ever since 1981, aiming to rediscover and promote the most genuine expressions of folk music in our territory. Music and songs have been transmitted orally in Inns, typical gathering places in rural communities, and are unfortunately disappearing with all the cultural heritage of an area and a whole world. The so called Four provinces area, i.e. the intersection of 4 regions (Emilia, Lombardy, Liguria and Piedmont) has preserved a common heritage of songs,dances, music and musical instruments (piva, musa - a types of bagpipe -, as well as the accordion) which has changed throughout the centuries and has accompanied events, fairs and religious celebrations.
On the magnificent background of the open gallery in the S. Colombano Abbey delimiting Piazza S. Fara, the evening will be animated by choirs.
