"Can you explain to us what is the meaning for Combat-Hippie? Of course! It is a new music style, a new way to define the concept of Tammurriatarock
that I [Enrico Capuano] invented with Dunia Molina, our great singer... We were considered a gipsy rock band but it wasn't the right meaning for
Tammurriatarock... So we prefer to say Combat-Hippy because our music is all about love, peace, freedom (hippy's life style) and the energy of combat-rock!"
- Michele D'Agostino, Diretta News
"Tammurriatarock started 29 years ago mixing Italian world music with the new sounds like reggae, rock and Latin music and became known around Europe thanks to the famous soundtrack of Gabriele Salvatores movie Sud. 'Almamegretta' became quite successful, leading to remix work for Massive Attack. These bands represent a new side of the Italian culture."
