International Heritage Music Series: NEWPOLI
Newpoli carries on a tradition that is so old it's hard to date,

arrangements of traditional music, the tempo is high, and the drama and
passion in their blood can be heard in every note!
Their latest CD, Nun te vutà, features twelve tracks, six originals, six
traditionals, and more then a dozen handcrafted indigenous instruments
played by eight talented musicians. It's an album that deals with
contemporary topics with the help of traditional sounds.
Newpoli will take you to Italy and back passing through decades of musical
traditions. Take a dip in the cultural melting pot that is the south of
Newpoli is part of Mayo Street Arts' International Heritage Music Series. Based on the idea that music is inherent to strengthening community in cultures around the world, the series celebrates regional music and dance traditions.
