Episode #3504

New Music From Southern Italy

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Hear song and dances in the music of Southern Italy on this New Sounds.  There’s music from Enzo Avitabile* together with the band Botari, using traditional percussion - that of barrels, wine casks, and scythes.  We'll also hear to a requiem incorporating the accelerated ecstatic drumming of Alessandra Belloni, with its roots in pre-Christian music. Then, listen to music from Taranta Power, harnessing the taranta, or tarantella, one of the world’s great surviving ecstatic trance traditions.  Plus, music by Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, featuring kora master Ballaké Sissoko, and more.

(*Sidenote: See the trailer for Jonathan Demme's film about Enzo Avitabile on Vimeo below.)
