Mediterranean Pulse – Ritmi della Terra

PVDFest June 8, 2019, 1:45-3 PM
The City Stage Sponsored by Waste Management
25 Dorrance St. Downtown Providence*

“a brilliant outfit who grab southern Italian traditional music by the neck and recast it in a dramatic style”
–Songlines (UK)

Southern Italy’s inspiring interpreters of the taranta tradition return to PVDFest with 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.”

The group is fronted by singers Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi, who PopMatters called “visual and musical cynosures with their contrasting looks and twining vocal lines.”

In concert you’ll hear the tamburello pounding out the heartbeat of Newpoli’s music, the two female singers will start up a wild, frenetic dance and you’ll have a hard time sitting still! The tempo is high, and the drama and passion can be heard in every note.
