“Feast your ears on an Italian group that cooks up an exotic blend of cross-cultural ingredients.”
Dore Stein, Tangent Radio, USA
The Palermo, Italy-based worldbeat group Agricantus took their name from the Latin expression for "song of the wheat fields";
Agricantus' music combines a dizzying array of traditional world music forms from across the globe not only with each other, but with club-ready electronic dance grooves, producing a compelling juxtaposition between old and new. Their first U.S. release was the 1999 compilation The Best of Agricantus.
