Baciamolemani, Sicily’s favourite, blends traditional horn-heavy Italian rhythms with Balkan inspired party vibes that take you on a musical journey around the Mediterranean isles.
Baciamolemani is one of Sicily’s most successful bands. The band manages to enchant both young and old as their live concerts are theatrical and heartwarming shows, featuring nine dynamic musicians.
The name of the band refers to an old Sicilian expression. While it was originally used to greet powerful members of the Mafia, young people use it these days as an ironic way to salute each other. It reflects the band’s ability to embrace their culture with both its beauty, contradictions and surrealistic history. With the strong characters and Sicilian charms of its singers, the band easily overcomes both language barriers and possible stereotypical prejudices.
In 2012, the band started spreading its tentacles all over Europe. The release of their second album L’albero delle Seppie and their collaboration with La Pegatina, quickly resulted into a memorable tour around Spain, France, Belgium and Italy. An exiting adventure. To be continued!
