Description:Arenaria Arenaria (sandstone) is the last CD of Mario Crispi, archaic wind instruments player and founder of the band Agricantus (famous band of italian world music). The CD is a poetic work on Sicily (island where Mario Crispi was born and where he still lives) and Sicily is a source of inspiration, musical instrument, a metaphor for cultural crossroads. The CD in fact has been recorded with a mobile studio in several places of Sicily. These places have very interesting acoustic characteristics (reverbs and echos): the Grottoes of Gurfah, or the "Prince's Tomb" at Sant'Angelo Muxaro (neolithic settlements dug into the rock of sandstone), or the building of fish market at Palermo. The musical concept of Arenaria develops with a musical style that uses techniques and sounds from the oral deep sicilian traditions. In the various tracks emerging similarities and differences of the cultures of the island. These musical signs are mixed with other music styles. Moreover, the main feature of Mario Crispi is to travel around the world, to meet many musicians, stories and atmospheres, and to make important musical experiences, developing concepts and musical compositions in close connection with the settlement, the interaction with musical languages of other peoples and other ethnic groups.
