Mediterraneo and Nothing Ever Happens Herepresent Carnevale 2019! A wild night of Italian Pizzica, New Orleans Brass, Brazilian Forró, and masks… lots of masks!
It’s that time of the year when the world is upside-down. When Harlequin the Servant is master for the day. When the Fool is wise, the King is poor, and Music rules them all.
After sell out editions since 2013, Mediterraneo is back with its annual Carnevale concert, and this year it’ll be bigger than ever, with three huge bands in the mighty Swampfog, The Badwills and Bristol Branch taking the stage… over 20 musicians to bring Italian, Brazilian and New Orleans Carneval fever to town like never before.

Silent Divas: Assunta Spina with Live Score from The Badwills (N/C 12+). Eden Court, Inverness. . 3 PM – 5 PM
Passion! Jealousy! Revenge! A Kind of Seeing presents one of Italian cinema’s greatest ‘silent divas’ with live musical accompaniment performed by not-so-silent six-piece Italian folk band The Badwills.
ASSUNTA SPINA tells the dramatic story of our eponymous heroine: a beautiful laundress in 1910s Napoli torn between men who can’t control her passions. The great diva Francesca Bertini stars as Assunta and has since been credited as the film’s co-director. Complementing the film’s striking setting in busy Neapolitan streets, The Badwills’ brand new live score reflects the passion on-screen by drawing on folk music and songs of the era rooted deep in traditional southern Italian dances such as the tarantella.
