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 world's lesser-known music traditions, Newpoli is Italy's next inspiring interpreter of southern Italy's 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 you'll hear the tamburello, played by virtuoso Fabio Pirozzolo, pounding out the heartbeat of Newpoli's music, singers Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi 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!

This is the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with the Friends for the Public Library.
