Standing still is impossible at this concert; the ancestral rhythms of the southern music mix up with the sounds of different areas of the Mediterranean in a frenetic dance.
Newpoli concerts are like a hurricane, full of rhythm and dance; they transform the spectators into time travellers through different decades of music, submerging them in the diverse cultural tradition represented by the south of Italy.
Founded in 2003 by a group of Italian musicians who met each other for the first time at the Berkley College of Music in Boston, Newpoli has performed for 10 years across the US and Italy.
