Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino


From southern Italy, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino is champion of the furious, trance-like pizzica that propels the frenzied tarantism folk dance. The seven-piece acoustic ensemble rocks like crazy, with insistent pounding of the tamburello frame drum over layers of violin, bouzouki, bagpipes and accordion. It conjures an exotic mystique blending tradition and modernity.
