EVEN in 2017 at La Fontana ai ciliegi in San Pietro in Cariano, Verona County, we had two live contests of Suonare@Folkest music award. Not easy indeed the decision of the jury, leaded by Nicola Cossar, Folk Bulletin Director, with Enrico de Angelis, Alessandro Nobis, Andrea Del Favero and Gianni Martin: very high quality (luckily) of all the Artists.
First evening on January 20th: the winners are Alzamantes, from Bergamo, with their charming hard folk; second place together Ajde Zora, balkan gipsy music band from Padova, and Swingari, musical quartet from Emilia, which blends swing e klezmer music with elegance.
Second evening on January 27th: first place Mi linda dama, sefardì music project, second place Martina Iori, very young folksinger from Fassa Valley; third place Menagrama folk rock band, a big lombard band, playing a Davide Van De Sfroos sound.
