Tamburi del Vesuvio
"Canti antichi e nuove contaminazioni"
formazione dei tamburi
The Vesuvio volcano heartbeat pervades the sounds and rythms of popular dances and songs of Campania and southern Italy. For ages this fertile land has welcomed rythms from people coming from abroad, who crossed the "Mare Nostrum", and settled in southern Italy. Today the Vesuvio and its traditional drums leads the rhythm of ancient songs mixed with new interferences.
Nando Citarella, musician, researcher and performer of this tradition created a band of percusionnists, singers and dancers from different cultures and roots who give an archaic atmosphere to the vesuvian magma and its beating drums.
