The traveling festival "La Notte della Taranta" makes a stop in Soleto on Aug. 23. Now in its 25th edition dedicated to the theme "The tradition of the new," Italy's largest traveling festival crosses 21 towns in Salento from Aug. 4 to 25, with 43 pizzica concerts, more than 400 artists and will lead to the long night of the Concertone on Aug. 27 in Melpignano (Le), with the maestro concertmaster DARDUST, in the midst of rehearsal activity these days at the Cinema of Calimera together with the Orchestra of the Notte della Taranta.
After the extraordinary success recorded at the International Folk Dance Festival and at the Mediterranean Games in Algeria, Pizzica in Scena, the show of the Taranta Dance Corps with choreography by Mattia Politi, is also back: appointment at 9 p.m. in Piazza Osanna in Soleto. The engaging and explosive choreographies are mounted on songs from the record produced by the Notte della Taranta Foundation in 2018. On stage: Serena Pellegrino, Michaela Coluccia, Lucia Scarabino, Veronica Mele, Cristina Frassanito, Stefano Campagna, Fabrizio Nigro, Andrea Caracuta and Marco Martano.
At 9:30 p.m. the music continues with Rocco Nigro with "Come fece come non fece" Favole salentine, a concert performance that stages through voices, music and live painting a collection of folk tales, recorded and transcribed by Luigi Chiriatti in the book of the same name published by Kurumuny edizioni. The voices of Fabrizio Saccomanno and Antonio Castrignanò, accompanied by the music curated by Rocco Nigro and played together with Redi Hasa on cello, Giorgio Distante on trumpet and Giuseppe Spedicato on bass, tell and sing the atmospheres of villages, smells ancient humble houses or exotic scents of sumptuous castles. Egidio Marullo's brushes evoke distant images, in time and space, of princes and princesses living and reliving among twisted olive trees and thorny prickly pears. Behind each fairy tale is the wrinkled face of an old man who was a child, his breathy voice and the gestures of his gnarled hands telling true stories disguised as fairy tales. The fables were recorded directly from the living voice of the storytellers in Salento dialect and were transcribed into Italian.
Next, the show continues with Enza Pagliara in Fasinfasò. A return to living music, to the pulse that becomes rhythm, to the body that becomes dance. From pizzica to serenades, from stornelli to stisa songs, Fasinfasò, is a concert performance, in which Enza interprets the classics of Salento folk songs, accompanied by musicians who have always been with her and who have arranged and written songs with her. Enza Pagliara will perform with Gianluca Longo, Antongiulio Galeandro, Dario Muci, Claudia De Ventura, Emanuele Coluccia, and Sofia Giordani Pagliara.
