The group, regarded as one of Italy’s most prominent and longest-lived folk ensembles, has also been well-received by the audience at the Viljandi Folk Music Festival. The group’s primary interest is in playing and presenting the peculiar Italian pizzica style of music and dance, which is based on the ancient ritual for healing life-threatening tarantula bites called pizzica tarantala, and is connected to the local cultural phenomenon of tarantism. All this includes intense drumming and wild entrancing dance. The concert is like an explosion of life energy: full of passion, rhythm, and mysticism.
