Charming Hostess, San Francisco, CA, 2 Jul 2013

imageCharming Hostess

Excited to open for Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino one of Italy’s leading traditional music ensembles, hailing from the Salento, the heel of the Italian boot. This seven-piece band draws from the ancient ritual of pizzica tarantata, said to cure the taranta spider’s bite with its frenzied trance. Tarantism, the cultural phenomenon of trance and possessions, has endured to the present day in Salento. We will be playing mostly Italian anarchist songs with a little bit of Leone Ginzburg in there for fun. Dance, get sweaty and trance out!
