Mamma Non Piangere was a relatively unknown RIO band heading from Italy in the late 70's, and released two albums during their short-lived career.
They formed in Milan around 1978 by guitarist/violinist Lorenzo Leddi, who also was the only member to be featured on both of their albums.
They disbanded shortly after the release of their second album, which was recorded live shortly after the release of their debut album
and had a completely different line-up other than Leddi's presence. The reason why they disbanded are temporarly unknown.
Musically, they are heavily reminiscent of bands such as Henry Cow, Gruppo D'alternativa, Stormy Six and other bands notable from the RIO genre,
spiced with their own unique twist which implies their sense of unique, unusal and eclectic instrumentation, songwriting and arrangements.
Their avant-garde influences seems to incorporate elements from traditional circus music,
Italian folk dance music into their sound with horns and percussion especially playing a significant role in their music.
Both of their two albums are interesting, inspiring and recommended especially for fans of Henry Cow, Slapp Happy, Art Bears, Stormy Six and Gruppo D'Alternativa.
