Ballroom

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino live concerts are a life explosion: full of energy, passion, rhythm, and mystery, they bring the audience from the past into the present, and back. With a range from the energetic pizzica pizzica and festa-like exuberance of a local band to the tenderness of songs of love and longing, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino provides an intense and atmospheric spectacle. The original brain child of the writer Rina Durante, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino is the foremost and longest standing traditional music band from Salento, in Puglia, formed in 1975. In 2007, the lead passed from the original founder of the band, Daniele Durante, to his son Mauro, a highly regarded frame drums player and violinist who has played with numerous artists such as Ludovico Einaudi, Piers Faccini, Ballake Sissoko, Ibrahim Maalouf, Stewart Copeland and La Notte della Taranta.
