"Magnapasta"

".. delicious album for the always mighty Magnapasta .." - RadioCoop


"NewFolk"

".. I Grandi Cambiamenti, seems like launching the band straight to the top, in search of their little but absolutely deserved success. They are giving oxygen to the italian new-folk.." - LaScena.it


"Magnapasta - I Grandi Cambiamenti"

".. with "I Grandi Cambiamenti" by the florentine band Magnapasta, you might re-live for a moment the pioneers' times of Napoli Centrale, and you get the clear feeling that all Music re-gain something that was lost in the last decades. The title track, with the scratchy-killer saxophone played by Alessandro Bosco, and "Terra Nostra", fusion anthem for a land which was wounded but not won yet, represent a new degree of musical consciousness.." - M&D Musica e Dischi


"Magnapasta"

".. a windblow from the South, hashish perfumes, memories from Eugenio Finardi." - Rockit.it


"Magnapasta new Album"

".. an eccentric proposal, a very interesting one.. a sort of electro-acoustic mix which takes the distance from the usual folk landscape to address those listeners who care for the quality of compositions and of the sound resulting... congratulations to this band, which authored a nice folk-progressive record, both modern and well attached to <<those good times>>.." - MovimentiProg

Bio

Magnapasta have been composing and playing since 2000. Hundreds of gigs all around Italy, radio and TV plays, and three LPs make them a quite well known live band. The sound is that called "newfolk", mixing traditional roots with modern taste.
European pop music has its roots, and one of these is the Mediterranean sound which goes from arab countries, to spanish, provencal, neapolitan and greek/balcanic. Magnapasta make an effort to link their southern Italian traditional voicings with the funky wave that circulated in Europe back in the '70s. And the jazzy arrangements over all the job finally make it a real "world music".
