The vision of Cleveland drummer and composer Anthony Taddeo, Alla Boara showcases the incredible diversity of Italy's folk music and history. Alla Boara seeks to compose, arrange, perform and teach this music in a way that articulates its relevance to the culture and audiences of today. Using traditional instruments and repertoire, the compositions and arrangements aim to inspire Italian-Americans—and, by extension, Americans of any ethnic heritage--to take pride in their musical roots and relate to the cultural relevance of this music. The group features the talents of Amanda Powell (Apollo's Fire), vocals, Dan Bruce, guitar, Tommy Lehman, trumpet, Ian Kinnamon, bass, Clay Colley, accordion and keyboard and Anthony Taddeo (Helen Welch / Hey Mavis), percussion.
