Bio

Vincenzo Castellana is a versatile musician. The early passion for the tambourine and the study of music led him to learn the art and craft of traditional South-Italian music. He started playing the tambourine at the age of 4, and was lucky enough to be taught the fiscalettu (traditional Sicilian flute) by the elderly players of tarantella music in Sicily. He has worked with prominent artists of the Italian and international scene, including Ennio Morricone and the Oscar-awarded director Giuseppe Tornatore. Lately, he has been developing music and theatre shows, blending traditional rhythms with digital music, storytelling, poetry, and dance. He graduated in Art, Music and Performing Arts at the University of Palermo.
