Exploring folk traditions from southern Italy: The "Tarantismo" phenomenon.


Notes

Nine tracks exploring rhythms found in traditional dances of southern Italy. The mix is inspired from the "Tarantella Pizzica" dance with origins going back to the therapeutic dancing ritual of the "Tarantati" (those bitten by the tarantula spider) According to scholars the dance possibly has roots to ancient ritual practices, ecstatic/healing dances found in the Dionysian festivals and Pan worship of Magna Graecia & the Greater Mediterranean region
