Tupa Ruja - Voice & Didjeridoo

Profile Information

About me:
From the meeting of Martina Lupi and Fabio Gagliardi was born the choice to create a new musical style: voice and didjeridoo. An unusual duet with sounds that are researched and essential at the same time, capable to evoke ancestral sensations; new sounds but also ancient like the roots of our ancestors. Their musical choice does not abandon its very particular origins: the Tupa Ruja in fact unites and the rhythm of the didjeridu, with the melodies and Italian texts, with the results of being the only group to propose and to carry forward such project. What characterizes them is their continuous artistic research; infact, whilst Fabio Gagliardi plays the didjeridoo, mostly utilizing his own unique techniques, and other ethnic musical instruments like the scacciapensieri (Jews harp), the harmonic flute, as well as different percussion combined with harmonic singing, Martina Lupi is able to compose evocative melodies that accompany texts composed by herself and she enriches the shows with her oriental dancing and fire juggling.

“Those who have the luck to communicate their passion through an art, whatever it be, must do so always by transmitting sincerely what they feel inside, without recounting what the rest of the world would like to hear, but saying exactly what they want to say”.


--------------------------------------------


Dall’ incontro tra Martina Lupi e Fabio Gagliardi nasce la scelta di creare un nuovo stile musicale: voce e didjeridu. Un duetto insolito con sonorità ricercate e allo stesso tempo essenziali che evocano ancestrali sensazioni; sonorità nuove per molti, ma antiche come le radici dei nostri antenati. La loro scelta musicale non verte ad abbandonare le proprie origini: i Tupa Ruja uniscono infatti al suono e al ritmo del didjeridu, melodie e testi inediti in italiano, risultando l’unico gruppo a proporre e portare avanti tale progetto. L’aspetto che particolarmente li caratterizza è la loro continua ricerca artistica; infatti, mentre Fabio Gagliardi suona il didjeridu utilizzando spesso tecniche da lui create ed altri strumenti etnici quali scacciapensieri, flauti armonici, varie percussioni e canto armonico, Martina Lupi compone melodie evocative che spesso accompagnano testi da lei scritti ed arricchisce gli spettacoli con danze mediorientali e giochi di fuoco.

“Chi ha la fortuna di poter comunicare la propria passione attraverso un’arte, qualunque essa sia, deve farlo sempre trasmettendo con sincerità quello che ha dentro, non raccontando ciò che il resto del mondo vorrebbe sentir dire, ma raccontando quel che realmente ha da dire”.
