The genuine Italian instruments, with folkloric origins, such as ammorra, tambourine or cane flute shelter on the other Mediterranean cultures instruments’ sounds in order to realize the perfect synthesis of acoustic and sonorous influences of cultures that were once part of the imposing Roman Empire.

The repertory of Terrasonora includes, among others, songs with ancestral rhythms from the Southern Italy, as a tribute to all the human communities that contributed to forming the modern Italian state. The music of Terrasonora aims to approach the world’s citizens to the true values that were the basis of the cultural basis of each of us, insisting on the sensitive part of the human personality.
