PROJECT - BIOGRAPHY

THE PROJECT

The project LassatilAbballari  aims to push their audience to dance, to move, to give expression to their natural instincts through specific cultural patterns.

Human beings, carried away by the music and rhythms of traditional dances belonging to the past- but still living in the present- regain possession of their time, no more marked by nagging problems but by the rhythm and melodies of a tambourine, a guitar, an accordion, a flute, but also of a Zampogna, a Scottish bagpipe or a Galician Gaita.

In this way the public is not passive,  but becomes an essential and active part of the show, through dances such as the Franco-Belgian Bourree, Galician Muiñeire and Alborade, Breton Andrò, Tarantelle, Pizziche and Tammurriate of Southern Italy, Jewish and Eastern European dances, Irish Jigs and Reels and more.

About two hours of music and dance where you can see and hear instruments and music from different European countries.

  

BIOGRAPHY

The LassatiLabballari is born in 2008 as a result of the musical meeting between Michele Piccione and Benedetto Basile. Over the years many musicians have come and gone from the ranks of LassatilAbballari, among them we can mention: Daniele Tesauro, Valeria Cimò, Davide Polizzoto, Paolo De Leonibus.

In 2013, the group finds its final form, with which today appears on stages all across Europe.
