NEWPOli - Southern italian Folk Ensemble

At last the celebrated NEWPOLI will come to Middletown! It will open our 2011-2012 Concert Series. The music of these exceptionally talented young performers is an exciting journey through time, culture and musical styles. The South of Italy has a colorful past with influences from diverse cultures.

All of these influences can still be heard in the traditional melodies and rhythms of the pizzica, tarantella and in other musical styles of the South. NEWPOLI, guided by its passion for playing, singing and researching, introduces the joy and beauty of the music while recounting the ancient stories and rituals described in the lyrics. The group has been enthusiastically received in the United States and abroad since its formation in 2003.
