About: Figli di Madre Ignota
Figli di Madre Ignota, band from Milano, Italy. A wild bunch who plays an aggressive mix of mediterranean urban music, evil polkas, mutant klezmer, breathless tarantellas. Surfy electric guitars and a generous horn section, a Balkan brass section playing with a twangy rock combo.Our last release: Bellydancer - 2014 –(GodzillaMarket)Milano and Italy, Mediterraneo and Eastern Europe, different cultures and big cities. It is where we live. The “bellydancer” is an ideal epitome of these inspirations: Middle Eastern influences, Mediterranean traditions, urbanized life, the electrified skyline of the city lights: the “bellydancer” is an expression of a tradition and at the same time an attraction of the ethnic restaurant round your block, a concept (a suggestion) that can be placed wherever at will, disconnected from the context but still having its own identity and a strong connotation: a neon sign on an exchangeable background.In this perspective, BELLYDANCER is a genuine snapshot of our shows, in which we favor the “indiscriminate danceable aggression”: if you like solid rock guitars, marble tough rhythm section, whether you like to dance or just sit on the couch, BELLYDANCER talks about lust, lust for sex, lust for food, lust for finding yourself lost in Istanbul, lust for being hungry, an urgent declaration of our Love for The Party.TOURSItalia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia: the band is well known for the breathtaking live shows, the spontaneous (and sometimes never ending) aftershows in the audience or with the local DJ with acoustic instruments, for the unstoppable self-irony and sparkly Italian temper.Band’s highlights include Sziget Festival World Stage (H, 2009, 2012, 2013), Rock’n Coke Istanbul (T, 2013), Hidrellez Festival (Turkey, 2013), Volt Festival (H, 2011), Lowlands (NL, 2010), Das Fest (D, 2010), Horizonte Festival (D, 2009), Fusion Festival (D, 2009), Mundial Festival (NL 2009), Eskisehir Festival (T, 2009), Hidrellez Festival (T, 2013), Caterraduno (2011), Ariano Folk Festival (2007, 2013).
