Ataraxia is an Italian ensemble that has been performing for many years all over Europe and Latin America. Our concerts are inspired both by early music and contemporary soundscapes crossing neoclassic, bohemien and atmospheric ambiances. We utilize both acoustic and electronic instruments creating an unusual mix of traditional and avantgarde music.

We feel to be crossroads between the Mediterranean culture and the Celtic one, a land of meeting and struggle that brings the physical and spiritual signs of far different experiences. We have grown up in Medieval burgs and we carry on the 'oral tradition' of those times like wandering bards who want to keep alive the memory of the past in order to afford the present and the future.

We live a concert as a sort of theatrical drama, a modern ritual to celebrate the elemental forces. ATARAXIA usually perform in fascinating environments like abbeys, castles, gardens, squares, courts, palaces where magic and spiritual energies flow copiously. Our live acts evoke arcane suggestions, sensual atmospheres with moments of contemplation and spleen, lunar elegies, delicate airs, epic rides and deep evocative chants.

We create our own costumes and masks. During our live acts, we explore and travel with our listeners in premival kingdoms. Music allows boundless, oceanic voyages. Ancient spirits are still speaking.

ATARAXIA have performed in the following countries : * Italy * Belgium * Germany * France * Portugal * Holland * Greece * Spain * England * Poland * Argentina * Mexico * Russia * Austria * Slovenia * Hungary * Chile * Bulgaria * Romania * China * Brazil * Hong Kong...

 

Ataraxia's music draws archaic mantras,
ritual movements and
lunar elegies,
whispers magic spells and
eastern litanies.
