Traversata is a collaborative album by American mandolinist David Grisman, Italian mandolinist Carlo Aonzo, and Italian guitarist Beppe Gambetta, playing guitar, mandolin, and the 14-string harp guitar.

The album comprises Italian-American instrumentals from the early part of the 20th century, when Italians migrated in large numbers to the U.S. They called their trip overseas a "traversata". In addition to traditional Italian folk music, the album includes versions of "Pickin' the Guitar" by Nick Lucas and "April Kisses" by Eddie Lang.[1]
