Silvia Tarozzi and Deborah Walker have emerged as one of the most interesting duos in contemporary improvised music. First introduced to Unseen Worlds through their performance on the Philip Corner recording 'Extreemizms: early & late', Tarozzi and Walker elevated recent recordings, Eliane Radigue 'Occam Ocean 3', Pascal Criton 'Infra', and Tarozzi’s own 'Mi specchio e rifletto' to greatness. Their finely tuned sound makes even the most adventurous tones compelling. With 'Canti di guerra, di lavoro e d‘amore' they add folk music to their contemporary classical and improvised music roots, reinterpreting songs from their youth in rural Emilia that originated from the emancipation of working class women and the partisan Resistance in World War II, especially ones sung by choirs of female rice field workers, called Mondine or Mondariso. Their songs tell a story of hard, poorly paid work, love, the hypocrisy of society, protests, war, the challenge of working far from home, the violence of oppression and the need for political awareness. Following years of incorporating, reinventing, and transforming these songs within their practice, Tarozzi and Walker unlock emotional territory where their relationship with Emilia resonates in concert with other sounds and places.
