Psychedelic Trance World

Explosive, energetic, captivating, Kalàscima is one of Italy’s hottest bands. Five friends from Salento, grown up with the melodies and the hypnotic rhythms of the magical ritual of Taranta, reinvent the tradition with a wild mix of electronics and lysergic beats with original melodies and folk atmospheres.

The last album is “K” (2018), and still moves the center of gravity through an out-of-the-box approach: the dialect of Salento, English and Griko create an imaginary bridge between the Apulian music and the international scene.

The live set is powerful and energic and features many traditional and fascinating instruments bagpipe, ciaramella, launeddas, tambourine, accordion), a spectacularly vast array of percussion, thrilling vocal and modern instrument (laptops and synthesizers) to create and original sound.
it is the antique that meets the modern with an explosive result.
