LA TRESCA was founded in the year 2000 and started off with a vibrant mix of Italian and Irish inspired traditional/folk music, over the years they also added some other music styles like Ska and Reggae. Their initial musical energy can still be noticed in their extended repertoire although they’ve turned more and more towards the roots of Italian traditional music, also writing beautiful new songs and tunes within that traditional spirit. 

LA TRESCA, meaning gathering or ‘Ceilidh’ in their dialect of La Tuscia, the region between the Umbrian city of Orvieto, the holy mount Amiata in the province of Siena and further south of the Lake of Bolsena in the province of Viterbo, can be regarded as one of the most appreciated bands in the italian traditional/folk scene. Traditional music is making a remarkable come-back in Italy, also thanks to bands like La Tresca who kept believing in the beauty and power of traditional music…..
