Antonio Lai

New Sardinian Music


As the embodiment of the mythological Shepherd-Warrior from prehistoric Sardinia, Antonio Lai founded New Sardinian Music at the dawn of the third millennium.

New Sardinian Music is an extraordinary vision between ancestral traditions and visionary modernity inspired by Sardinian myths and legends.

One of the most important ideas behind New Sardinian Music is the “resurgence” of musical meaning from archaic traditions of Sardinia. This concept involves the integration of traditional and intelligible “episodes” into modern musical works.

New Sardinian Music draws on technology and other arts: visual arts (photography and video), performing arts, dance and theater.
