Album Notes
"Mare Maje" or "Scura Maje" is a very ancient song - a widow's lament - possibly of Balkan origin, that has circulated in Abruzzo for centuries, in different variations. One of them was even collected by Alan Lomax while he was travelling across various regions of Italy in 1954.
Dogs Love Company - a folk/blues band from Catignano (Pescara) creating both original songs and new arrangements of traditional music - sing their own version of the old tale of a woman losing her husband and her house, having to raise her family on her own.
The lineup includes Danilo Di Giampaolo (voice), Victor Mazzetta (guitar) and Daniele Di Pentima (percussions).
The track anticipates a forthcoming EP containing 5 tracks, "Ballate Folk ed altre storie" and is accompained by a video published via YouTube, filmed by Tiziano Ciccone in the ancient village of Corvara (Pescara).
