Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino Warms Up New Hampshire

Zach talked with bandleader Mauro Durante via Skype from Italy about Pizzica music, the band's American tour, and if they are bringing enough warm clothes.

But on February 6th at the Spaulding Auditorium in Hanover, the southern Italian band Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino will be bringing their high energy pizzica tarantata music and dance.  Leading a new wave of young Italian artists reinventing and invigorating traditional Italian music, CGS includes six singers/musicians and a dancer.

I think it would be impossible not to have fun at a show like this:
