Traveling in Terza Classe is another story! The under decks of the transatlantic ships, in the period between the end of the 1800s and the 1900s, were a crossroad of people and cultures heading to the same horizon of changes and freedom. Through the music, these migrants, changed to joy the suffering of the long journey on board to create a “new world” in society and also in music, as the Appalachian Bluegrass demonstrates.
This is the spirit that gave the soul to this group of “music players”, coming from different styles and experiences. La Terza Classe plays and sings a lot of stories, some of outlaws and rebellion from slavery, with the typical sound of the area that goes from Europe to the Louisiana, passing through the Appalachian Mountains and the Delta of Mississippi. The sound, full acoustic, reminds the decks of the big ships, or the sound of the street bands in the cities where folk, blues and early jazz melted.”
