WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From Puglia in the heel of Italy come these sensational folk music firebrands, specialists in the ancient pizzica style - the trance-like tarantella said to cure snake and spider bites. There are still small moments of contemplation here but what captivates the heart and the feet is the furious rhythmic vitality of the ever-present handheld tamburello drum offset by violin, bouzouki, bagpipes and accordion and impassioned throaty vocals. This is mesmeric, haunting, music-making - original, timeless and thrilling.
