Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

35-47 Bethnal Green Road
E1 6LA


The seven piece band and dancer make the audience shimmy with the energy of the ancient ritual of pizzica tarantata, said to cure the taranta spider’s bite with its frenzied trance dances. Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino  shows are a life explosion: full of energy, passion, rhythm and mystery, they bring the audience from the past into modernity, and back.

Led by Ludovico Einaudi’s violinist Mauro Durante, Italian stars Canzoniere create a wild spectacle for Christmas, full of energy, passion and stunning dance.
