I BASSIFONDI SUPPORTED BY CIDIM - COMITATO NAZIONALE ITALIANO MUSICA

Concert 18

Led by Roman lute/theorbo player Simone Vallerotonda, I Bassifondi – freely translated as “the wrong side of the tracks” – have recently shot to fame with irreverent and catchy versions of guitar music from the 16th and 17th century. The term 'alfabeto falso' refers to letters that were used as a shorthand for chords and ways of playing related to particular genres – not unlike the charts used in pop and jazz music today.
