We are pleased to host Newpoli as part of our integrated series at N4th Theatre, where we bring musicians to perform for the artists with developmental disabilities at N4th and invite the community to come join the fun and see the great work they do there. Community spots are limited to 60 people and reservations are required.
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!
