Called a brilliant outfit,who grab southern Italian traditional music by the neck and recast it in a dramatic style by Songlines (UK), Newpoli is a unique group with a powerful sound and a 21st century take on their tradition that is beyond comparison.
With exciting interpretations of traditional and originals that draw deeply from one of the worlds lesser known music traditions, Newpoli is Italys next inspiring interpreter of southern Italys taranta tradition.
The group stirs up a mesmerizing sound that melds traditional Italian folk music, Greek and Turkish Grooves, Mediterranean and Spanish colors, and a contemporary sensibility they call Mediterranean Pulse - Ritmi della Terra.
In concert youll hear the tamburello, played by virtuoso Fabio Pirozzolo, pounding out the heartbeat of Newpolis music, the two singers will start up a wild, frenetic dance and you'll have a very hard time sitting still! The tempo is high, and the drama and passion can be heard in every note!
