ABOUT
Trotula is the Hartmann ensemble's debut album, inspired by the fascinating story of the most prominent physician of the Salerno Medical School, developed from the 9th century A.D., attended by academics from all over the world in which everyone had free access for treatment and in which women maintained significant influence and often covered leading roles.

The forthcoming album, in co-production with the Label Rupa Rupa rec, was partly financed by an effective crowfunding campaign, with contributions from all over Italy and several European countries: the record, on vinyl and in digital format, contains songs with both traditional and inspired lyrics, often dedicated to the sea as a hopefulness dimension, lullabies, with themes such as adventurous journeys, distant lovers, migration but also related to southern Italy oral tradition or seventeenth-century Neapolitan literature and theatre. The concert is primarily based on the music of the album: in a live concert, music, poetry, narration continuously intertwined, producing an imaginative and seductive universe.

Hartmann begins in the summer of '15 with Daniele Apicella on percussion and Carlo Roselli on picks with the principal aim to study a repertoire from the 13th and 14th centuries of Southern Europe. The lyric and traditional singer Orsola Leone joined and after a while Renata Frana at the dilruba.
