Alla Boara seeks to bring recognition and new life to Italy's diverse history of regional folk music.
Their modern arrangements of near-extinct folk songs such as of lullabies, laments, hymns, and festival songs are variously surprising, playful, mournful, tender, and bewitching. Alla Boara’s dynamic work aims to inspire audiences of all ethnic heritages to treasure their musical roots and consider historical songs’ contemporary cultural relevance. Vision of drummer and composer Anthony Taddeo (Helen Welch/Hey Mavis), Alla Boara also features vocalist Amanda Powell (Apollo's Fire), guitarist Dan Bruce (Beta Collective), trumpeter Tommy Lehman (Acid Cats), bassist Ian Kinnamon, and accordionist and keyboardist Clay Colley (KOBA). Currently finishing their first record, Alla Boara has already received critical acclaim for its originality and accessibility and was recently featured in La Gazzetta Italiana and predicted to have a bright future by Cleveland Magazine.
“(Alla Boara’s) more modern rendition of Italian folk music has created a new sense of cultural awareness and respect for a tradition passed down from generations of old.” - New Frontiers, Spring 2020
