On stage, the musical space will end with the meeting of Mediterranean rhythms between Salento and Maghreb, in fact, Officina Zoé and Fanfara Station will give life to a great Mediterranean musical party to celebrate the 30 of the Salento group. The long night of the itinerant continues with an evocative nighttime performance at 00:30 in Piazza Cattedrale: "La Balconata con Il Corpo di Ballo Taranta": after midnight in Soleto, the dancers of the Corpo di Ballo della Taranta will give life to a show with a strong visual impact that transforms the balconies of the historic center into the urban stage to be admired with your head up.

FANFARA STATION // MARZOUK MEJRI - CHARLES FERRIS - ICICLES AND SEA BASS
Fanfara Station is a live-looping trio project that combines the power of a brass band, electronics and the rhythms and chants of the Maghreb. Inspired by the memory of Marzouk's father's band, Fanfara Station celebrates the epic of Mediterranean migrant peoples, the musical cultures of the African diaspora and the flows that have always united the Middle East with the Maghreb, Europe and America. A dance party created live by only three musicians and two loop stations for the overlay of tracks and the manipulation of acoustic and electronic sounds. The instruments on stage are diverse: dof, bendir, darbuka in interplay with trumpet, trombone, clarinet, the three Tunisian wind instruments: Nay, Mizued and Zocra as well as electronic instruments like Synth, Daw and Drum Machine. The Jalla Jalla tour in 2023 will take Fanfare Station's music to more than 15 countries and will include more than 50 concerts in total. Line-up: Marzouk Mejri: voice, percussion, Tunisian winds, loops, Charles Ferris: trumpet, trombone, loops, Ghiaccioli and Branzini: electronics and programming.
OFFICINA ZOÉ "I 30 anni" meets FANFARA STATION.
Zoè is a meeting of Mediterranean sounds, where the last piece of Italian country meets the sounds of the Maghreb. The trance of Salento's pizzicato tambourines is in dialogue with Tunisian percussion; Salento's violins and accordions meet wind instruments and trumpets. Electronics also tell their own story, and the voices of North African ancestors overlap with the sounds of tarantismo. Cyclicality, minimalism and the pursuit of dance-like energy are common to both bands. They decide to meet at the festival "La Notte della Taranta" to offer the audience more languages from the same sea that has united peoples for millennia, calling for a return to themselves as a symbol of unity rather than separation.
The Ragnatela della Taranta continues on 23 August Sternatia, 24 August Martano, 26 August CONCERTONE DI MEPIGNANO, 27 August Galatina - Notte delle Ronde. FREE ADMISSION.
