Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino is the foremost and longest standing traditional music band from Salento, in Puglia, Italy. Their 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. Formed in 1975, and the original brain child of the writer Rina Durante, the lead passed in 2007 from band founder Daniele Durante, to his son Mauro. Mauro is 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.
