September 5th 2013

A long time has passed from the last time I wrote something on this web site.
Lots of thing happened, good things, bad things, most of them where good I have to say.

Niegazowana is a label from Vigevano, Italy and they offically released Formigole in april 2013, this theorically means we are more professional now, we have a label, people are talking about us on the news papers, you could hear Toni Bruna on the radios. This doesn't pay the rent but makes me feel good in some way.

Here you can read what they wrote about us.

In this time we've been touring a lot, we sow a lot of places, met a lot of people, ate, drunk, breth new things.

We temporarely lost some friends and musicians like Andrej Pavatich and Massimo Tunin along the way as others joined the group: Raffaele Podgornik on percussions and Jan Sedmak (yes him, the grafic designer!) on clarinet.

It's not fun to be here writing I prefer to do other things so I'll quit in a while hoping to see you somewhere out there and talk in person.

Autumn 2013 will hopfully bring us a lot of concerts around Europe but right now we don't know enything yet, if you want to be updated about what's going on with us just connect to the Facebook page. I don't like it but it works pretty well for this kind of things.

That's all, živijo!

June 28th 2012

It seems they broadcast the session we recorded at the Italian National Radio (RAI). It was a good session in a beautiful old fashioned studio, we really enjoyed it. A shame to see a beautiful recording and broadcasting studio, equiped with class A gears, in which could fit a small orchestra, left almost without use and nearly abbandoned.
The show was “Jazz e dintorni” led by Piero Pieri.

It’s impossible to hear the recording because by contract RAI owns the copyright and we found no trace of any podcast on their official web site.
Ther's another funny detail: they told me they lost the the audio file of the interview!!!
This is how we do it in Italy!
Please tell what do you think about it, write at the same old address: poniguma@gmail.com

We do have photos by Ivan Doglia.




June 2nd 2012

We’ve been performing at the Isolacinema Film Festival in Isola/Izola Slovenija.
We played a couple of songs before the movie “Io sono Li” by italian director Andrea Segre.
They seemed to be happy and we too.




May 18th 2012

The Zibaldone Radio Experience, out now!
Steven Forti and the people at Radio Contrabanda published this compilation of songs from many musicians that played at the independent radio station.
Why am I talking about it?
Because there’s a version of Baiamonti in it!

They’re also playing it on the Spanish National Radio (RNE).
Check it out, min. 35.40 here.




May 1st 2012

We headlined the annual celebration concerts of May 1st in Brisciki/Borgo Grotta, Trieste.
I cannot really tell you more than this, you should have been there
It was just crazy!




April 27th 2012

We performed at the “In Orbita Night Party” with Stefano Edda.
In Orbita is a show by Ricky and Elisa Russo broadcast from Radiocapodistria.

The people at Sentieri Sonori declared “Formigole” the revelation album of 2011!
Thanks guys.




April 6th 2012

We’ve been playing in the livingroom of Rajko Pertot and his family in Ljubljana, Slovenija.
An amazing night.
Wonderful people.
It was almost like this: click.
This is what they say about the performance if you can read slovenian and if you can't we're going to translate it as soon as possible: click.




March 23rd 2012

Solo al Round Midnight.
That means: alone at the Round Midnight.
Wonderful audience, beautiful night.
Thanks.





January 6th 2012

As this will be the last year for all of us, we have to live it up. If you can you should try not to work, nor getting angry or driving cars, you should eat good food, stare at some sunsets and come to see us in Barcelona from the 22nd to the 25th of January. We will be there for a couples of gigs.





So Le cucine Mandarosso is in Calle Verdaguer i Callis 4 (Palau de la Música),
metro Urquinaona (L1, L4)
And Bar Pastis is in Calle Santa Monica 4, metro Dressanes




December 24th 2011

The guys from Sentieri Sonori-Radio Ara say Formigole is one of their favourite albums of the year 2011. If you're curious about that click here precisely on the minute 41.19 you'll have the proof I'm telling the truth.




December 18th 2011

December 13th 2011

Gianfranco Franchi writes about Formigole on Lankelot and on Tiscali.
What can I say? Nothing but thank you, and thank you again.




November 23rd 2011

So here we go with the "Sshh night", it seems a good idea even if I can't really understand why every party, club, band, new company in Trieste has an English name.

The idea is simple but revolutionary at the same time: go to a gig just to listen to the band playing!

If you want to come to chat with your friends at the bar, please stay home.
I'll be there with Massimin and there will also be this girls from Reykjavic Pascal Pinon
You could also build match boxes.

Where? at the Etnoblog.
