Pizzica Tarantata

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

| Italy

They are regarded as Italy’s leading and longest-standing traditional music ensemble: Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. They have revitalized both the rousing and the introspective sides of Southern Italian song and dance. Nowadays, the seven piece band and dancer are the leading exponents in a new wave of young performers re-inventing Southern Italy's Pizzica musical and dance traditions for today's global audience.
Their shows are a life explosion: full of energy, passion, rhythm and mystery, they bring the audience from the past into modernity, and back.
Bandleader, fiddler, and drummer Mauro Durante continues to innovate and energize, bringing decades of experience playing with global artists (Ballake Sissoko, Ibrahim Maalouf, Piers Faccini), contemporary classical composers (Ludovico Einaudi), and pop mavericks (Stewart Copeland of The Police). Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino opened the Concertone of La Notte della Taranta in Melpignano, performing live in front of over 100.000 people. Critically acclaimed with 17 albums and countless live performances throughout USA, Canada, Europe and the Middle East, in 2010 CGS was awarded Best Italian World Music Group at Italy's MEI confab.

The new album will be released during the spring of 2015, and will be produced by Ian Brennan, Grammy Winner for Tinariwen's album "Tassili".
