La Tammurriata in the southern Italian musical tradition: ritual and myth

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. It exists 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.

Isabella Ruggiero, experienced dancer and choreographer, will introduce the participants to the cultural background of Tammurriata – a combined form of music, canto and dance – as well as to the basic techniques of dancing and drumming.

La Tammurriata belongs to the wide family of Tarantella dances, spread all over the south of the Italian peninsula. Names such as ” Tarantella” or “Ballo sul tamburo” were, indeed, also used to refer to Tammurriata but they have been falling into disuse.
In the inner parts of region Campania, north Apulia, Calabria, Basilicata the folk dance is still called Tarantella.Doors open: 19:30
