Harddiskaunt is a ska band coming from the Spondamagra of Lago Maggiore in the north of Italy. The band play together since 1996 and they like to mix ska with a lot of different music as reggae, punk, swing, surf, latin and a little bit of italian tarantella... In the beginning of 2008 the band renewed the lineup: new horns, new keyboards and, above all, a new singer: Numa, coming from Argentina. This change emphasized the south american flavours of the band so that now they like to call themself a latin-ska band. Anyway they didn't forget the jamaican roots and they still use to play some jamaican tunes during their shows. HARDDISKAUNT Live! Two guitar, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, t-bone keyboards and a lot of style. The band plays a two hours show full of energy and fun. From Napoli to Munich, from Genova to Zagabria every audience enjoyed the show. Harddiskaunt had lot of gigs (about 350) in Italy, Swiss, Germany, Austria and Croatia as headliners or like opening act of bands like Skatalites, Ska-P, Bad Manners, New York Ska Jazz Ensemble, Wailers, Dog eat dog and many many other.
