When the impetuous members of the Toulouse-France based Pulcinella meets with the energic trio from Bogota-Colombia La Perla, the result is PulciPerla! A mixture of swaying and carnal music where the vocal, saxophone, accordion, bass and percussions are all connected to build the rhythm.
Crazy and percussive songs powered by bulerengue, reggaeton, funk and champeta setting fire and making you move.
[CRÉATION SUMMER 2022]
For this hybrid repertoire, the quartet becomes a quintet, with two accordionists (also officiating on keyboards)! And when they are not playing saxophone, double bass, drums and accordions, Pulcinella give voice to this azimuth and percussive repertoire under Afro-Latin, musette, funk and Balkan influences... Electrifying original compositions and dynamited covers promise insistent calls to dance! Une guerre des boutons colorée et festive !
[CREATION JUNE 2019]
Imagine a golden thread between Toulouse to Tirana via Lecce,
constantly running backwards and forwards between these 3 Mediterranean cities.
We can call this thread the « Pizzica » – a dance trance from southern Italy created by women in order to heal tarantula bites – and to free themselves from the oppression of the patriarchy.
And in the twist of this thread we find hypnotic tarantelles, harmonies from Albania, a bit of jazz, and wild waltzes.
A collaboration not to be missed : Maria Mazzotta, one of the most emblematic voices of the Pouilles region, meets Pulcinella, the explosive jazz quartet from Toulouse.
More electric than the previous ones, their 6th album entitled Ça (It) hosts a gallery of mutant sounds straight out of an Elka organ and pedals of strange effects… An atypical music serving an ode to the Ça (It), a stream of desires without censorship studied by Doctor Freud.
The quartet recorded its last album «Ça» in January 2019 at BMC studios (Budapest Music Center) in Hungary.
Pulcinella offers here a large disc, a dream machine and a remedy for big brothers to make our fears disappear and push us towards our fellow men.
