The Skaddia band were formed as a tribute to the melodies, songs, chants and ditties of the area commonly referred to as "Altosalento", with the aim of transferring to the younger generation, musical techniques they have developed, to keep memories alive, and to preserve and transmit knowledge, ritual and traditional collective conscience of this corner of Puglia.

The repertoire aims to raise awareness, especially to young people, of the cultural heritage of their place of origin, to establish an increased sense of belonging, and to know its history and culture.

The objective of the band is the truthful transmission of poetry and music entrusted exclusively to the oral tradition, pizziche, songs, folk songs collected by    listening to the voice of the older generation as handed to them, from generation to generation.

In their repertoire along with pizziche, you can find polkas and quadrilles typical of this area from which, often, the listener is entranced and involved in the dance. A tribute to the great Domenico Modugno (Mr Volare) as inspiration for Skaddia and some songs from the minstrels of San Pietro Vernotico (BR) with links to the tradition, are included in their repertoire.

A regular dance class is 3 hours, but extensive courses can be arranged as well as tamburello or mandolino classes and entire concerts.
