Originally from Belvedere Marittimo (CS), Carmine Sangineto is the winner in the World Music category of the 70th World Coupé awarded by the CONFÉDÉRATION INTERNATIONALE DES ACCORDÉONISTES CIA IMC, part of the UNESCO music council.

In September 2017 he also won the prestigious International Accordion Award “Città di Castelfidardo” in the cat. M.

However, Carmine Sangineto is passionate about accordion and a scholar of the link between instrument and tradition. He proposes music that starts from local folklore to embrace new sounds, in which the musical instrument becomes the vehicle of a universal, suggestive and free music.

The passion for this traditional, yet so multifaceted, instrument is manifested since childhood, with the memory of the same musician: “The first time I held up a barrel organ I was just 8 years old and it was immediately … love!”
