The Italian Cultural Institute, on the occasion of the Festa della Musica 2019, an event organized by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività culturali, is pleased to present the Sounds and cantatas of the Radio Lausberg with Quelli del Venerdì. Festa della Musica, created in Budapest on November 1, 1997, with a manifesto of principles, takes place every year on the 21st of June, the day of the summer solstice. Festa della Musica is a live celebration, free and devoid of any intention of profit, designed to enhance and promote the multiplicity of expressions and musical genres.

Radio Lausberg is a music band from the Lucan-Calabrian area named "Lausberg Area" in 1939 after the renowned german linguist Heinrich Lausberg (1912-1992), which studied the variety of dialects in the region. This area is characterized by highly conservative local dialects. Geographically, the area corresponds to the region in between Tyrrhenian Sea and Ionic Sea, with the Mount Pollino in the middle. The Radio Lausberg members are Giuseppe Oliveto (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist), Luca Oliveto(piano, vocalist, knocker), Enzo Peluso (classical and acoustic guitar, bouzouki), Carmelo Ciminelli(accordion, piper), Corrado Aloise (drum, percussions), Pasquale Ferrara (bass, double bass). Radio Lausberg, whose name comes from its own cultural roots, aims to promote the linguistic and traditional music heritage of the region. In 2016 they released their first album Kuntaminata Storia, in 2018 Terre di mezzo, produced by Erriquez of Bandabardo (Vrec Music label).
