Bononia Grass #1 on

Bononia GrassBononia Grass, from Bologna in Italy, finished the month of March with the #1 video in the live performance category on, a social network-like site where fans vote on new music uploaded by independent artists.

Their street performance of Six Feet Under The Ground was chosen first among 482 entries, against competing videos in all different styles of music. Pretty impressive.

Banjo player Luca Naldi was succinct in his reaction…

“I’m really happy because we love to play bluegrass!!!”

Here’s their winning video.

Bononia Grass consists of Naldi on banjo, Giovanni Stefanini on mandolin, Luca Bartolini on guitar, Paolo Ercoli on resonator guitar and Pedro Judkowski on bass.

UPDATE 4/2: Luca Naldi tells us that even though Luca Bartolini is their regular guitarist, Giovanni Zordan is playing with them in this video.
