NEWPOLI with Mediterranean Pulse: Ritmi della Terra

Newpoli carries on a tradition that is so old it’s hard to date, performing music from Southern Italy laced with influences from the surrounding Mediterranean cultures. Originals are mixed with exciting arrangements of traditional music: the tempo is high, the drama and passion can be heard in every note and you will have a hard time sitting still!

Nun te vutà, their latest recording, features twelve tracks, six originals, sixtraditionals, and more then a dozen handcrafted indigenous instruments played by eight talented musicians. It’s an album that deals with contemporary topics with the help of traditional sounds.
