Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Insout is a creative music duo formed in 2000 by Claudio Allia (music writer and producer) and Riccardo Samperi (music writer, producer and sound engineer)with the only intent to express their own visions and inner emotions, through the exploration of several sonic directions.
We were born and we live in Sicily, a highland in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea that has witnessed confluence of very different cultures through the centuries: Greek, Arabians, Normans, Spanish and American too (Sigonella NATO base is only 5 miles from our hometown), Claudio Allia explains the roots of the band. Our artistic influences vary from Magritte and Dalì paintings to Mediterranian etno /folk music, rock and blues, electronic music, funk, jazz and classical; from J.S. Bach to Dreamtheater, from Thelonious Monk to Orbital....
