Biography

Company Rassegna gathers together voices from both sides of the Mediterranean sea, singing in different languages the tradition from their mother country. There are therefore a Flamenco singer, a Corsican singer, an Arabo-andalusian singer and a Greek singer who all share their own influence. Under the direction of Bruno Allary, Rassegna is developing research work, adaptation, arrangement and musical composition upon popular songs around the Mediterranean sea. The company has an ambition to highlight their common points and similarities, without ever erasing their differences and particularities, in a certain form of a common identity. Rassegna produces creations and discs that reinvent these musical traditions. An invitation to feel the emotion and a nice reflection of the life in the Mediterranean...

Discography

Rassegna new album "Venimos a ver" (Buda musique Editions / Socadisc) has just come out, in november 2007,with the participation of Renaud Garcia Fons,as an artistic adviser.
Anthology of popular songs from Corsica, Andalusia, south of Italy, north of Greece, Maghreb and Provencal French, it is the repertoire the most frequently played on stage by the Company Rassegna.
The diversity of its influences, the atmosphere extremely festive –that makes sometimes artists dancing on stage- and the richness of its musical colors are offering an elegant and distinguished show, nice reflection of the life in Mediterranean.

Rassegna has produced too "Bendita Madre" (Playasound / Nocturne - 2004). This repertoire full of sacrality is usually presented in acoustic and in church. Through it, company Rassegna gives a universal tribute to feminity and maternity.

The oldest album "Dominos" (Playasound / Nocturne - 2003), is another anthology of popular Mediterranean songs.

We already had different interviews on radio, and some tracks of Rassegna's new album have been played on different radios.
