Melbourne Taranta Festival – Australia

Canzoniere Grecanico SalentinoVardos TrioThe “Vardos Trio” will be supporting seven piece band “Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino” (from Salento, Italy - picture above) at the Melbourne Taranta Festival in the Thornbury Theatre, Thornbury, Melbourne, Victoria on March 15th. As well as traditional Pugliese food stalls and Italian wines, attendees will enjoy a variety of music from both groups. The Vardos Trio (picture right) play a variety of Gypsy and folk music.

“Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino” (which includes accordionist Massimiliano Morabito) are exponents in a new wave of young performers re-inventing Southern Italy’s Pizzica musical and dance traditions. The group are said to “make an audience shimmy with the energy of the ancient ritual of pizzica tarantata, said to cure the taranta spider’s bite with its frenzied trance dances.” They also play music by global artists Ballake Sissoko, Ibrahim Maalouf & Piers Faccini, contemporary classical composers Ludovico Einaudi, and pop mavericks Stewart Copeland of The Police.
