Tarantella di MontemaranoSaturday, January 11 was presented in Avellino the program of the Carnival of Montemarano 2014 edition. The event – which has an important story both from a socio-cultural and musical sphere – is increasingly becoming a convergence of popular expressions related to different expressive traditions. And, likewise, has become an opportunity to explore some issues on the carnival and music related to it. The series of events will open Friday, January 17 with the celebrations in honor of St. Anthony, and ends Sunday, March 9 with the ritual death of the carnival. During this long period, collected under the title “Carnival of Cultures”, will be performing groups and artists from many non-European countries – among which “City of Rome Pipe Band (Scotland), Marzouk Mejire in Tanit Project (Tunisia), Konkobà (Senegal) – you can watch the traditional parade and listen to the now famous tarantella of Montemarano – characterized by an harmonic structure defined by the overlap of traditional instruments such as the tambourine with accordion and clarinet – and, finally, a lecture by anthropologist, musicians and composer Roberto De Simone, scheduled for Thursday, February 27, entitled “The popular traditions and the Carnival of Montemarano”.
