Date(s) and venue(s)
In the South of Italy - as is often the case elsewhere - people sing as a ritual, to give rhythm to their work, to express their feelings and to keep the memory and knowledge of a community alive.
During two days of workshops, the members of Hysterrae will bring you close to these songs, so you can discover their origins and history, their social functions and the legends embedded in these types of popular expression.
And best of all, you’ll get to practice them. Voice and rhythm are equally important, but for this workshop you’ll need to choose... Between:
- songs, and in particular those of the Neapolitan region (from Naples to Vesuvius) and Salento (the South of Apulia)
- or percussion (frame drums), through three styles representing the South of Italy: pizzica (Tamburredhu), tammurriata (Tamorra), and a form of tarantella from Calabria (Tamburello).
At the end of the workshop, the two groups will come together for lu tamburredhu mio, a traditional pizzica that is danced at popular festivals in Salento
