Folk Tunes of Northern Italy
Achille & Nicola Bocus
This is a chance to learn some classic Northern Italian folk melodies.
Achille will play some folk songs from northern Italy on mandolin and
teach the words in Milanese Dialect and Italian. Achille and Nicola will
then demonstrate some harmonies and rhythmic accompaniments. All instruments
and voice welcome!
Achille and Nicola are teachers of Italian and classical mandolin in
the Bay Area and directors of the San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra. Achille
recently moved from Milan where he conducted the Milan Plucked String
Orchestra and was an orchestral Double Bass player. Achille and Nicola
perform with the ensemble group Mandolini Graziosi and are working on
a recording of Baroque concertos including Vivaldi's famous concerto
for four violins played on mandolins.
