World Music by a World Class Band
Feel the passion and excitement as the Old Town Center for the Arts hosts Newpoli in Concert, featuring a Mediterranean pulse from Italy – Rimti Della Terra.
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.”
The group is fronted by singers Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi, a pair that PopMatters in 2016 called “… visual and musical cynosures with their contrasting looks and twining vocal lines.”
In concert you’ll hear the tamburello, played by virtuoso Fabio Pirozzolo, pounding out the heartbeat of Newpoli’s music, the two female singers 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!
This is what the press has been saying about Newpoli!
“Among the best of recently released and forthcoming world music albums!”
“Newpoli whirl through the rich, edgy kaleidoscope of southern Italian Music”
“World class album by a world class band.”
“Passion and excitement!”
“A brilliant outfit...who grab southern Italian traditional music by the neck and recast it in a dramatic style.”
“Marsico and Rossi, visual and musical cynosures with their contrasting looks and twining vocal lines.”
