In Martina Franca you can experience a music tradition on December 8th: Zampogna ( a type of bagpipe) will be performed! Zampogna is a generic term for a number of Italian double chantered pipes that can be found as far north as the southern part of the Marche, throughout areas in Abruzzo, Latium, Molise, Basilicata, Puglia, Campania, Calabria, and Sicily. The tradition is now mostly associated with Christmas, and the most famous Italian carol, “Tu scendi dalle stelle” (You Come Down From the Stars) is derived from traditional zampogna music. However, there is an ongoing resurgence of the instrument in secular use seen with the increasing number of folk music festivals and folk music ensembles. The double reeded version of the Zampogna is generally played with the piffero (called “biffera” in the Ciociaria, or “ciaramella” or “pipita” in other regions]; a shawm, or folk oboe), which plays the melody and the zampogna provides chord changes, “vamping” or rhythmic harmony figures or a bass line and a soprano harmony as accompaniment.
