Hello everybody,

It’s about to start a course of traditional southern Italian dance, La Tammurriata. After the great success of the monthly event Cinempasta which hosts the workshop “La Tammurriata workshop – a dance around the Vesuvius”, the extraordinary response of the public of the “Folkendammer Festival” ( traditional music & dance event in Holland ), time has arrived to start up a school of Tammurriata where getting deeper in the dance and in the music of southern Italian provenience.

La Tammuriata is a music tradition lived in the rural areas around the volcano Vesuvius, in the South of Italy. Throughout the transformation of seasons, the tradition connects the existentiality of the local population with their everyday social lives and work, the earth and the elements of nature, and with their ancestors and spirituality. With utter devotion and care, la Tammuriata has been passed on as a strictly oral tradition over many generations and is today an intriguing tradition transcending the limits of everyday space and time in a powerful ritual to cleanse up the social and metaphysical tensions that obstruct the eternal progression and repetition of life’s cycles.

On Sunday 10 november, there will be a free introductory lesson at OT301. Check the details here:


The course is held on Thursday in Amsterdam.
