Ravenna Festival in Cervia – Milano Marittima
PER L’ALTO SALE – Il trebbo in musica 2.0

Paolo Rumiz
Quell’Europa che viene da Oriente
Fabio Mina flutes and live electronics

“What is Europe? What are its boundaries? There are no limits to the East, where the Old Continent blends into Asia. The West, instead, has the ocean, which nobody was able to cross for thousands of years. All the peoples who settled here always came from the East, and we, the Europeans, are their descendants. Going east, for us, is a bit like going back to our origins.” This might be the reason why Paolo Rumiz has been focusing on the East for a few years now. In his own words: “I am from Trieste. In my city we have had Armenian, Greek, Lebanese, and Turkish merchants… Here, anyone who has ears to listen and a nose to smell can actually feel the scent of those lands.”
And thus, for him, writer, hiker and traveller, visiting those lands means recognizing affinities, tracing common roots, listening to songs expressing different faiths—Christian, Muslim, Jewish etc.—all celebrating the same mystery. In a similar way, Fabio Mina, an outstanding Italian flautist, has fallen under the spell of Eastern music: his interests range from the classical Indian tradition to the wide variety of wind instruments like the Chinese hulusi, the Armenian duduk, the bansuri flute or the Slovak fujara.
These two restless spirits meet along the lines of a story that looks East to see inside us.
