Album Notes
Newpoli is a group of exceptionally talented musicians, all alumni from Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory and Longy School of Music, who specialize in Southern Italian Folk Music from the regions of Campania, Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia. Newpoli integrates a wide variety of styles such as Tarantella-Pizzica, Tammuriata, Villanella, Moresca and the Neapolitan Canzone, encompassing music from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.

Founded in 2003, Newpoli is an eight-piece ensemble that has performed throughout the United States and in 2008 made their European debut at Diacetum Festival in Tuscany, Italy.

Joining Newpoli on this CD is multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire John La Barbera.
