Since the release of their first album 'O vicolo 'e l'allerìa in November 2014, La Maschera took its place in neapolitan music scene as one of the most interesting independent bands.
‘O vicolo ‘e l’alleria is a trip through Nepolitan alleys, witholding characters, stories, loves, contradictions, vices, dreams and hopes. It was soon noteworthy for its remarkable experimentation rate, so that it could be fully placed in the “World music” genre. La Maschera’s music is a a successful synthesis of the varied musical background of the band’s members, from the rock of the Sixties/Seventies to the folk tradition, through the punk and ska.
Confirming their attitude towards stylistic contamination, in the summer of 2015 La Maschera meets the Senegalese musician Laye Ba: their encounter resulted in stylistic contamination and musical blending. The outcome was their single Te vengo a cerca'. This song carries the band through a journey to Senegal, among people from the popular neighborhood in Dakar where the song’s videoclip was shot.
In November 2017, their second album, entitled ParcoSofia, was released, disclosed by the single Dimane comm' ajere and its videoclip, shown to public for the first time during La Maschera’s concert in September 23th.
