likes to play dance musicin the Italian Ballo Liscio style: waltzes, mazurkas, polkas, rhumbas, tangos, tarantellas, paso dobles, jotas, and marches. Youll hear many of them starting at 10:30am every Saturday at the Caffe.
A hundred years ago, Italian dance hall music saturated popular culture with the Viennese school influence; it later fused with Latin rhythms and Italian melodies to create a broader appeal. By the mid-1950s, the next generation of Italian-American composers were introducing these dance genres to San Francisco Bay Area audiences in cafes and nightclubs. Zighi Baci performs Italian standards and music written by Bay Area Italian and Italian-American composers such as Frank & Lawrence Andrini, Peter Tarzia, Rudy Cipolla, Gino Pellegrini, Mike Corino, and others.
Two thousand four marks Zighi Bacis debut at the Cotati Accordion Festival.
