Each edition is an experience that leaves its mark, imbued with unusual atmospheres,jazz manouche, Balkan brass bands, classic klezmer, and contamination with italian popular tradition and world music. They share a single origin: two forms of music that go back in time and in space, radically tied to popular sentiment, reaching us integral and vital in spite of the ravages of history. On one hand Klezmer music, inescapably tied to the people whose culture it expresses. And on the other, gypsy music, the atavistic sound of the wandering gypsy culture. There are few events like it in Italy or in Europe, and while it maintains the intimate dimension of a local festival, Vincoli Sonori continues to offer a quality programme that does not only appeal to fans of world music. In the past, guests have included Taraf de Haidouks, Acquaragia Drom, Urs Karpatz, The Klezmatics, Maurice El Medioni, Kalman Balogh, Loyko, Colalaila, Brave Old World, Titi and Ziroli Winterstein, Ando Drom and Bratsch.
