Surpluz, Milan, Freedom Come All Ye

Surpluz were one of the first contemporary artists I found when I went looking for traditional Flemish folk music — rather than the Folk-pop cum Levenslied that tends to dominate on radio and in the recording industry or the Folk-rock prominent in the Netherlands. Not only are they worthy of an audience outside Belgium, but their repertoire opened up a whole new seam of traditional songs and tunes that I was previously unaware of. My monthly visit to Milan is, as usual, dominated by Ivan Della Mea, Nanni Zampa and I Gufi. But, Mimmo Dimiccoli and Fiorella Mannoia promise new lines of research, when I get the time. Freedom Come-All-Ye is the song which ought to replace that awful dirge "Flower of Scotland" as the national anthem. It's a better tune and it tells a much more realistic and hopeful story about the country. It's Portuguese Saturday.
