Lots of dancing!!!! :) And you don't have to know how to! And it's fine just to listen as well!


"World Class!" - Global A Go-Go

"Among the best of recently released and forthcoming world music albums!" - Global Village/NPR

a brilliant outfit,who grab southern Italian traditional music by the neck and recast it in a dramatic style - Songlines (UK)

Newpoli is a unique group with a powerful sound and a 21st century take on their tradition that is beyond comparison.
With exciting interpretations of traditional and originals that draw deeply from one of the worlds lesser known music traditions, Newpoli is Italys next inspiring interpreter of southern Italys taranta tradition.

The group stirs up a mesmerizing sound that melds traditional Italian folk music, Greek and Turkish Grooves, Mediterranean and Spanish colors, and a contemporary sensibility they call Mediterranean Pulse - Ritmi della Terra.

The group is fronted by singers Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi, a pair that PopMatters in 2016 called , visual and musical cynosures with their contrasting looks and twining vocal lines.

In concert youll hear the tamburello, played by virtuoso Fabio Pirozzolo, pounding out the heartbeat of Newpolis music, the two female singers will start up a wild, frenetic dance and you'll have a very hard time sitting still! The tempo is high, and the drama and passion can be heard in every note!

7:30 PM – 9 PM

We're delighted to be presenting this new(ish) ensemble here at Accurate. This is a seated event and there are only 52 seats available, so be sure to buy in advance. This is also Sawaari's last show of 2019.

Michael Rivard – sintir
Andy Bergman – sax, clarinet, hulusi
Fabio Pirozzolo – percussion, voice
Amit Kavthekar – tabla
Jussi Reijonen – oud

Sawaari explores the nexus of Indian taals, Arabic maqams, and trance music from North Africa and Italy, fully encompassing the varied interests and backgrounds of its band members: Fabio Pirozzolo (vocals and percussion), Jussi Reijonen (oud), Mike Rivard (sintir and double bass), and Amit Kavthekar (tabla).

Pirozzolo and Rivard were founding members of Grand Fatilla, with Reijonen a frequent guest. Following the sudden passing of Fatilla member Roberto Cassan, the three joined forces with Kavthekar to continue pursuing their passion for combiningworld music from disparate cultures into a unified and cohesive sound.

With an emphasis on rhythm, the music they create has a searching, exploratory quality that brings together the meditative with the energetic, taking the listener from sparse tranquility to complex syncopations in a moment. Meaning "to ride" in Hindu, Sawaari invites audiences to be transported into a world of rhythm and sound that knows no borders and no limitations.
