SOAS Concert Series: Amaraterra by SOAS University of London

By on March 9, 2019

Pizzica is the folk dance of Salento, a region in the furthest reaches of South Eastern Italy (the ‘heel of the Italian boot’).

At a crossroads of civilisations, Salento has preserved its ancient Greek-Roman folk roots, with Dionysian festivals and the mythological bite of the tarantula that induces an irresistible urge to dance oneself into a trance-like state, accompanied by traditional tamburello drumming.

Formed in London in 2011 by passionate expats, Amaraterra has evolved into a thriving and multinational ensemble, while losing none of their traditional southern Italian flavour.

Their monthly sold-out residencies at East London’s Jamboree venue (now closed), are a thing of legend.

SOAS Concert Series: Amaraterra by SOAS University of London will be held on Friday 15th of March 2019.
