ONE NIGHT ONLY! TUESDAY APRIL 9TH
AN EVENING WITH LAUNEDDAS MASTER LUIGI LAI
DISCUSSION AT 8PM-CONCERT AT 830!
Luigi Lai is an Italian musician from Sardinia and is the living heir of the school of Sarrabus players of the launeddas, a Sardinian woodwind instrument that dates back to 8th century. Consisting of three pipes the launeddas are played using circular breathing, with complex melismas over drones. A single song can last over an hour. The music of the launeddas is some of the most primal and ritualistic music in the European tradition and The Stone is proud to present Luigi Lai in this rare NY appearance!
