    From Salento, located in the heel of the Italian boot in Puglia, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino is leading a new wave of young performers who are reinventing Southern Italy's pizzica taranta traditions. The ancient ritual of pizzica tarantata was said to cure a tarantula’s bite with its frenzied trance-dances. Led by violinist and percussionist Mauro Durante, the seven-piece band and the exceptional dancer perform an electrifying, rhythm-driven show full of energy, passion and mystery.
