migrants, the Scalabrini Band is always on the move, thereby also
enriching itself with the sounds, the melodies, the hopes and nostalgia
of the persons and people it encounters.
The missionaries who make up the Band live in different countries and come together for big events/meetings which are organised during the year among young people, migrants and friends on the exodus’s roads.
We could say it is a band that is like an accordion which widens and opens up, tightens and widens again, being enriched also by the contribution of young musicians and artists. In the arrangement of the different notes, voices and instruments that are in themselves diversified and yet seek each other, one can experience the joyful meeting of diversity, which flavours the celebration.
..... celebrates the Scalabrinian Centenary
by dedicating his songs to all those who discover themselves as part of a
wandering humanity and walk certain of God's project, in which each person is
precious in his or her diversity.
"Exodo e Festa" is the title of a song which gives the name to the CD - it
shows us the path, sometimes uncomfortable and narrow, which leads to an
encounter with the other, friend or enemy, and to the discovery of the treasure
hidden in every exodus.
This treasure allows us to anticipate the feast of communion and thus live on the border and without borders, sharing the road with those on the road.
