Antonio Lai


The aim of Antonio Lai’s New Sardinian Music is to promote Sardinian music and culture internationally through a personal and innovative compositional approach between tradition and modernity. The target audience is a “new” public who are interested in traditional cultures especially Mediterranean Europe.

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.
