During the survey by the Jug Band Colline Metallifere with Klaus der Geiger at the Biancane Park, between Monterotondo and Sasso Pisano (Souther Tuscany), we have proposed him to improvise some music to be performed as Klaus “der Geyser”, after seeing the “Autobus 37” video by Etruschi from Lakota, shot in the same location almost ten years ago (for those who are not aware about it, two of the components of Etruschi from Lakota, Dario Canal and Simone Sandrucci, are two of the founders of the JBCM project).

The Metalliferous Hills Jug Band (or Jug Band dalle Colline Metallifere, JBCM, in Italian) is an international and inter-generational collective proposing a combination of music and environmental practice, where melody, rhythm, storytelling and science outreach are merged in one situation. The JBCM is based in one of the lesser known parts of Tuscany, the Metalliferous Hills, spanning across the provinces of Grosseto, Pisa, Livorno and Siena, and where the typical “Tuscan postcard” themes are mixed with the legacy of one of the largest mining areas in Europe, and a geothermal energy district, thus combining rural and industrial issues and perspectives. The JBCM was launched 2018, after three years of preparation, merging different expertise by professionals with multiple years of research experience on environmental, territorial, rural, and musical issues. At the end of October the JBCM is pleased to proposed the return to Italy of a friend they met at the very beginning of their project: Klaus der Geiger. Klaus is a violinist born in 1940, musically raised in Köln, Germany, with various international experiences, and know in his home country as “the Asphalt Paganini” due to his numerous street performances. His activity is often related to social issues, and he also has collaborations with many symphonic orchestras and recording projects.
The Jug Band Colline Metallifere info point on culture, environment, and open innovation will be available.
