As you hear the tamburello pounding out the heartbeat of Newpolis music, the two singers start up a wild, frenetic dance, and you'll have a very hard time sitting still! Welcome to Newpoli live!
The group carries on a tradition that is so old its hard to date, performing music from the South of Italy laced with influences from all of the surrounding Mediterranean cultures. Originals are mixed with exciting 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. Its an album that deals with contemporary topics with the help of traditional sounds.
