Hailing from Sicily, this charming trio draws deeply from the wells of tradition while creating a new sound full of personality. Born from the encounter between tradition and innovation, Oi Dipnoi’s music is rooted in traditional melodies of the region, where new themes are developed and sustained by the diatonic accordion, supported by the Nakaira rhythmic section and percussion and bass. Master dancer Francesca Campione punctuates performances with Tarantella dancing. The “dipnoi” is a metaphor for the current music scene in Sicily: prehistoric fish / living fossils that have adapted for survival.
