Landfall tonight: Check out the music of southern Italy


Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

CSPS Hall — Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino kicks off the seventh annual Landfall Festival of World Music tonight at CSPS Hall. Though the group is true to the tradition of the pizzica dance music of Southern Italy, their music has a distinctly modern vibrancy, as can be seen in the video for “Nu te fermare,” a song from their 2012 album Pizzica Indiavolta.

Their music is undeniably Italian, yet manages to capture the entire meaning of “world music,” both with their cross-cultural collaborations with musicians from Europe and Africa and by their emphasis on drawing out the Celtic and Middle Eastern influences that left their mark on Italian folk music centuries ago.

With their hypnotizing vocals and frenzied rhythms, the music of Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino underscores the cathartic commandment at the heart of the pizzica tradition: give yourself over to the music.

For more information on this performance and other acts appearing in Landfall, check out the Legion Arts calendar.
