Album Description

CURATOR:
Released:October 8th, 2011
Length:00:35:49
Host: Rob Weisberg
Engineer: Davey & Juan

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino - CGS - from Salento in Puglia, southern Italy, specializes in playing the driving rhythms of the pizzica dance and other ancient rhythms on traditional instruments. The pizzica is the local variant of the legendary mystical spider-trance-dance, the tarantella. Southern Italy has long had a lively traditional music scene teeming with compelling ensembles like CGS - but the bands rarely make it to the US: Though highly regarded since its formation in 1975, CGS is on its first ever North American tour. So it's a rare treat to have this superb group live in studio to play and introduce us to the deep musical roots of the region. - DJ Rob
