CGS-CANZONIERE GRECANICO SALENTINO with INUDE special guest
The touring festival La Notte della Taranta on Aug. 17 lands in Galatina, where it will also return on Aug. 27 with La Notte delle ronde, immediately after the big concert in Melpignano, for the final leg of the August journey in music and art that has involved 25 locations in Salento and more than 400 artists since Aug. 1. A festival that is embracing multiple artistic expressions: music, dance, theater and, new for this edition: the Talks. Six appointments with big names in literature, philosophy etc to tell and deepen a theme: Identity. And it is precisely in the city of Saints Peter and Paul that the third appointment with the Taranta Talks will be held, at 8:30 p.m. in Piazzetta Orsini in the company of Stefano Massini, the only Italian in history to win the Tony Award, the Oscar prize of American theater. Massini will try to shed light on the theme of identity with the usual trait of his storytelling. The magic of words, the rapture of a story, the ability to stimulate reflections and shift points of view: these are the ingredients of Massini's art of storytelling, composer and "decomposer" of words and stories, investigator of everyday stories and states of mind, with his narrative frescoes he "touches the heart and the mind," excites and makes us reflect.
From 10 p.m. space for music in Dante Alighieri Square with performances by Chi sonä e cantä no nmórë majï and then the historic group of Salento folk tradition, the -Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. And the world-celebrated masters of the pizzica meet the electronic music of Inude, one of the most original and creative realities in the Italian alternative scene, in a brand-new project, a world premiere, that promises an imaginative and psychedelic journey punctuated by the ancestral pulse of the drum.
Chi sonä e cantä no nmórë majï
A project that starts from the Cantori di Carpino, authors and performers of the sonnets, compositions full of poetry, and from a Storyteller, Matteo Salvatore, who told us about hunger, misery and exploitation of laborers, as well as love stories, slices of the South. The journey always skirts the Tradition, sometimes landing on islands of modern-day music. Chi sonä e cantä no nmòrë majï, contributes to keeping alive the enchantment of music in tradition. The lineup consists of: Giovanni Calcaterra (double bass); Paolo Caruso (percussion); Antonio Pizzarelli (sax, clarinet); Guido Sodo (voice, guitars, oud, mandoncello), Michele Russi (frame drums), Vincenzo Aniello(guitars), Antonella Gallo (voice).
Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino meets Inude
" Pulse" Pulse the project that the historic group of Salento folk tradition proposes in Galatina, represents the vital pulse, which pumps the blood in our veins and makes us live. The natural scanning of time, which slows down and speeds up along with our emotions. It is the impulse, physical and electronic, that transmits sensations in every fiber of our body. The urge to move toward each other, to erase distances. It is the rhythm of our being together.

The theme of this 26th edition is IDENTITY, inspired by Italo Calvino, the writer whose centenary since his birth falls this year: "Identity is a bundle of divergent lines that find in the individual the point of interest," Calvino wrote in "Civilizations of Machines." A theme-world to interpret current reality addressed in the lectio magistralis by philosopher Umberto Galimberti guest in Martano on Aug. 24, by Tlon philosophers Maura Gancitano and Andrea Colamedici on Aug. 21 in Martignano, by criminal judge Maria Francesca Mariano on Aug. 19 in Cutrofiano, by journalist Marcello Veneziani on Aug. 23 in Sternatia.
