Nicuzza, in Sicilian language, means Piccolina, a term that gives the meaning of this workshop, which aims to bring the students closer to the interpretation and the setting to music of traditional and modern songs, in a playful and simple way, as it was done in the past.
This idea was born from the request of some students of the tambourine course, who wanted to deepen the link between the voice and the drum.
You will find a synthetic explanation of the voice pose; also, the dynamics of this workshop will be oriented towards the pleasure of expressing, through the songs and their meaning, all the emotion and history of a people. The proposed repertoire will be linked to historical events, love, reflection and play, among many other subjects proper to the culture of Southern Italy.
Texts in languages such as Sicilian, Neapolitan, and Pugliese will be used, with translations into Italian and French.

Irish music boasts an enormous repertoire, so the accent will be placed on learning and interpreting the jigs, reels, hornpipes and polkas that are most often played and enjoyed today in jam sessions.
This wind instrument of Armenian origin consists of a cylindrical body and a double reed. There are 8 finger holes on the duduk’s front and two thumbholes on its back. A piece of reed acts as sound and air regulator. The duduk is a simple instrument but one that produces a unique sound.
These regular workshops are a chance to try out the Martina A. Catella method and its Sing the World application, in order to ‘discover the voice, the world, its cultures and languages through song’. This original approach brings together technique, games and repertoires borrowed from traditional societies the world over for their learning values and beauty.
