Stansbury Theater, Music Drama Center
Italy's fascinating dichotomy of tradition and modernity come together in the music of Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. Hailing from the Puglia region, the seven piece band and dancer are the leading exponents in a new wave of young performers re-inventing Southern Italy's Pizzica Taranta musical and dance traditions for today's global audience. Critically acclaimed with 16 albums and countless live performances throughout Europe and the Middle East.
