“Assurd”, founded in 1993, is one of the best and innovative bands of South Italian folk music. The band was initially made by three ladies - Cristina Vetrone, Lorella Monti and Enza Prestia. The trio has resumed the “Tammurriate” - songs and dances of the local tradition. The repertoire is enlarged and enriched with the variety of Italian songs like serenades and the tarantellas.
Their exhibitions are always something more than an ordinary concert. The warmth of their singing envelopes the public in a sort of a musical celebration of life and feast.
