The Aristodemo’s, una band che a Barga ormai è un must. Nata fuori del bar Casciani, questo gruppo ha affondato le proprie radici nello swing italiano (e non solo) degli anni ’30, ’40 e ’50.

La Galera in Fornaci di Barga with Giulio Turriani at the helm is gradually becoming the in place to be seen at with a mixture of good food, beer, wine and interesting people.

Sunday nights at La Galera is also the night when there is a fine mix of a live music and culture.

Last week it was the Amanita Phalloides with their experimental electronic psycoelectro sound (article here) – this week it was the turn of The Aristodemo’s who have been making a name for themselves over the last few years with their version of Italian swing music from the 30s, 40s and 50s.
