Casa del Vento is influenced from Modena City Ramblers (MCR) founded by emilian boys on 17 March 1991, on St. Patrick's day to play Celtic songs in patchanka style, which influenced the most the Italian folk rock in the last 15 years. MCR's first demo-tape was Combat Folk: a musical manifesto: a fusion of Combat Rock by The Clash and folk: traditional Irish excerpt, political songs (Contessa) and partisans' songs (Fischia il vento and Bella Ciao rearranged with Irish sound. Combat folk will be a new musical genre: folk rock with a strong political and social message. Later M.C.R. travelled in South America, Morocco, Palestine and South Africa, world sound met rock, punk, loops and samples: the new genre is Celtic patchanka which is a mixture of traditional music, punk, reggae, rock and political lyrics. The singer of the group Cisco along with producer Kaba Cavazzuti who also became "a new member of the Modena City Ramblers after changes in the original line-up", released the album of the 'brother band' Casa del Vento, titled "900" which came out in February 2001.
