NEWPOLI

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 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!
