Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino
Young leaders of Italy’s new wave, this dancer and dynamic seven-piece band hail from the Puglia region. They lead southwestern Italy’s pizzica taranta music and dance tradition while also disseminating a re-invented twist for a global audience. The ensemble, founded in 1975 by Daniele Durante, is now led by his son Mauro, a noted percussionist and violinist. “…their performance was a triumph…. A fiery, rhythm-driven set that electrified the packed Marlin room.” Pop Matters. 8pm. $25, $20 mbrs.
