Vesuvius Ensemble is North America’s first traditional music group dedicated to the preservation and transmission of the enormous cultural legacy made up by the popular cultural traditions in the zone around Naples and southern Italy. This legacy includes the cultural and musical traditions of countryside peasants, whose rituals and songs been passed on orally and in writing over centuries and finally recorded and researched in the twentieth century by important scholars such as Roberto De Simone, Diego Carpitella, and Alan Lomax. The area’s cultural heritage also includes published material from professional Renaissance & Baroque composers working in urban settings who published in forms which imitated popular music or used texts in regional dialect (Falconieri, Kapsberger, Kirscher, Vinci, Provenzale, Leo, etc.).

Since their debut, Vesuvius Ensemble has thrilled audiences and critics like in concerts throughout Ontario, Quebec and Italy, both alone and in collaborative projects with the Toronto Consort and Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.
