Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino dynamic seven-piece band hail from the PUGLIA region.  They lead southeastern Italy's pizzica taranta music and dance tradition while also disseminating a re-invented twist for a global audience. The ensemble, founded in 1975 by Daniele Durante, is now led by his son Mauro, a noted percussionist and violinist. Hamilton says, "this band is high-energy and they bring a wonderful dancer with them. They have made this folk music into a really dynamic new form."

Thrill to the captivating sounds of cutting-edge FOLK music with Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino from LECCE - Regione PUGLIA.

WOW!!! Watch this VIDEO. Fast, hypnotic, tambourine-driven!

The legend is that "PIZZICA" (BITE) music was performed by itinerant musicians to help peasant women in Puglia recover from a Tarantula spider's deadly bite.

Many of the folk dances of Puglia were brought to Italy by the ancient Greeks, for example the famous "La Tarantella" based on the ancient Greek Dance of Dionysus. There has been a huge revival and interest in these ancient dances continues to grow.  Traditional Dance Festivals in Southern Italy have been drawing huge crowds from all over Europe.  The yearly "La Pizzica Festival" (aka Notte della Taranta Bite Festival)  - a frenzy dance festival (The Tarantula is a deadly spider from TARANTO - Puglia region)  drew over 200,000 people to southern PUGLIA from Europe during the week of August 26, 2012.

 


August 26, 2012 @ Melpignano (LECCE) Regione Puglia, “LA PIZZICA” Festival (aka Notte della TARANTA) attracted over 200,000 revellers from all corners of Europe.
