Palus Blues


Someone once said that "the blues is the roots, the rest is the fruits." We went in search of these roots in the venues of the Olim Palus of the Agro Pontino (aka Latina, Lazio region), very far away from the Mississippi Delta where blues was born.

In these lands of euca lypti, canals, and agricultural holdings, some people have found their reason for existing and for surviving in this musical genre. Although these places are so far away from the Delta or from Chicago, they have something in common with the cradle of blues: they give voice to the soul, because Blues does come from the soul.
