Ciauda's musical genre is a melting pot of world music tinged with streaks of modern pop and a sprinkling of Mediterranean folk. The lyrics are journeys and containers, soaked in sentiments, from a love of the Earth to traditions and metaphors of life's experiences. Winners of a number of awards and prizes including the "Atellana Festival" in 2007 in Caserta and the "Festival della Canzone Italiana" in 2010 in New York, the band published its first Ep, "Unnè" in 2008 and the follow-up "Unnè 2" in 2011. Ciauda is currently preparing for the release of "Unnè 3" to conclude the trilogy.
