CHINH INDIA ITALIA was born thanks to the collaboration between two extremely lively and active cultural groups. Formed by media and music professionals, CHINH INDIA ITALIA has the aim to create a bridge of cultural exchange and development to promote the traditional culture and tradition of nomadic people.
CHINH is a Sanskrit word meaning symbol representing the phoenix like strength, the incredibile culture and traditions of the nomadic people of the world. The association aims to preserve, promote and transmit to the future generations the cultural and music heritage of the nomadic communities of the world, as well as to promote the civil rights of the nomads thorugh the production of performances, documentaries, educational kits and workshops. The most innovative experiment of intercultural ingration will be the creation of NOW – the Nomadic Orchestra of the World, a different point of view to look at the nomadic people in a musical and cultural perspective.
From Italy all the way to India, country of origin of the gipsies, NOW will be the voice of a new possibility for building links between nomads living in different countries, searching for ancient common roots, for a shared language and culture through the centuries with the challenging aim of promoting the value of the human unity, of the respect of diversity in a world free from the prejudices and the limitations raised by borders, races, religions and ideologies.
After the successful concerts of NOW held in New Delhi, a preview of the colourful taste of the band will be performed at the Roma Cinema Fest with Nuove Tribù Zulu, whose singer Andrea Camerini is NOW’s art director. The Italian band Nuove Tribù Zulu meets the gispy dancers Chejà Celen, a group of young roma ladies coming from the “Cesare Lombroso” village in the central area of Monte Mario in Rome. They are coordinated by Vania Mancini in collaboration with Arci Solidarietà.
Nuove Tribù Zulu, with their original gipsy folk-rock sound, have played in the years almost everywhere: buskers down the streets at posh festivals, on tv e in beautiful theatres. They have always been involved in social projects in nomadic villages, in jails, in communities for disadvantaged young people, in music workshops in Italy, India and Africa using music as a tool for communicating peace and positive values. Their discography is made of three CDs and a poetry, drawings and music book : Sulla Strada (Il Manifesto, 2000), L’Unione dei Mondi (Rai Trade, 2003), Gente del Cielo (Moletto/Venus, 2007), Il Sogno. Suoni e visioni d’amore e lotta (Editrice Zona, 2007).
