The only canton of Switzerland where Italian is the primary language, Ticino is a small but distinct locale with a culture all its own. Along with maintaining a long and successful career as a clown and mime, Dimitri is a native son who has been upholding Ticino's folk song tradition for decades, with the help of singer-guitarist Roberto Maggini. Performed and recorded in a cheerful, unpretentious, relaxed manner, this music gives you the feeling that you are sitting on a porch on a summer afternoon with these gentlemen. First released in 1993, the 28 songs here include "Dove te vett," "La bella Monfrinotta," "El merlo," "Son cieco," and "Quando saremo fora."
