Antonio Castrignanò, born in Galatina (LC) in 1977, is an author, composer, and musician who approached Salentinian popular music since his adolescence. Instead of being overwhelmed by this genre, Castrignanò became a turning point for the pizzica genre and experimented with contemporaneity creating an extremely personal style.
The musician produced for Ponderosa Music & Art, Fomenta (2016), and Aria Caddhipulina (2018).
Fomenta, produced by Ponderosa Music & Art, is an additional turning point in Antonio Castrignanò’s already eclectic artistic propositions. It sees him involved in electronic incursions developed alongside Turkish DJ and multi-instrumentalist Mercan Dede: a short circuit for which the musician from Salento once again finds the keystone between his tradition-tied personal expression and expressions inspired by contemporary sounds.
