January 17, 2018 all-day

oi dipnoi8pm doors, 9pm show

Oi Dipnoi are returning to Django Bar in January, fresh from Woodford Folk Festival!

Hailing from Sicily, this charming trio draws deeply from the wells of tradition while creating a new sound full of personality.  Born from an encounter between tradition and innovation, Oi Dipnoi’s music is rooted in traditional melodies of the region, where new themes are developed and sustained by the diatonic accordion, supported by the Nakaira rhythmic section, with percussion and bass.

Master dancer Francesca Campione will be accompanying the band on this their first sojourn to Australia, enthralling you with Tarantella (traditional southern Italian folk dances).

The “dipnoi” is a metaphor for  the current music scene in Sicily:  prehistoric fish/living fossils that have adapted for survival.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this sensational Sicilian ensemble.
