Roberto Lucanero: diatonic accordion, piano accordion, vocals
Marco Meo: tambourine, vocals
My duo with Marco Meo began in 2011 and has become a duo well known and appreciated among people involved with the traditional music of the Marche region.
The duo has rightly been called "minimal and maximum": the vocals, accordion and tambourine are in fact capable of transporting the audience and dancers into the traditional and magical world of the saltarello. The saltarello is the archetypal traditional music and dancing of Marche which, according to tradition, was created in the mists of time by the fairy-handmaidens of Queen Sibyl, the fairy lady of the mountains of Marche which are still called the Monti Sibillini.
Marco and I are work together and individually as course instructors for traditional dance, diatonic accordion (me), singing and tambourine (Marco).
We have participated in at various festivals in Italy and in Europe as a duo, including the Gran Bal Trad in Vialfrč (Turin, Italy), Capodanze in Casalnuovo Monterotaro (Foggia, Italy), Festib'Alzen (Alzen, France), La Bretagne accueille l'Italie in Clohars-Carnoėt (Brittany, France), Boombal (Gent, Belgium), tEy (Belsele, Belgium).
