About

SYLVATICA is a poetic-musical project focused on shamanic singing, first studied from an anthropological and ethnographic perspective and then brought back to its wild nature, that is to the wild modes of manifestation and transmission that are specific to it, far from the new age drifts that often surround the phenomenon of shamanism in contemporary times. The voices and sounds meet here in their essential nakedness, to cross the prehistoric animistic visions of primordial song, with particular attention to its energetic and invisible dimension of care, awareness and enchantment.

SYLVATICAit is a concert that lives in that archaic and indomitable space-time intersection in which tree leaves, birds in the skies, fish in the seas have moved for millions of years. It is an exploration that brings together different traditions, from the Tuvin chants of the Siberian-Mongolian border to the epic-totemic cantatas of the Finno-Ugric area, from the Inuit songs of the Arctic Circle to original creations born for the project itself.

 

SYLVATICAis a collaboration between the singer and dancerBarbara Zanoni, whose artistic work pertains to the field of sacred feminine and archaic shamanism, and the harpist, poet and philologist Francesco Benozzo, author of several poems and studies on the shamanic origins of our cultures.
