A little of Gypsy blood and lots of traditional weddings and feasts all around in Italy: this is ACQUARAGIA DROM. Its original music and dance project will allow you to discover an amazing Italian/Mediterranean-Gypsy style swirling among Rom saltarellos, tarantellas and tammurriatas (folk dances) from the Sinti tribes.
Acquaragia Drom is trying to rebuild the musical journey of the Italian Gypsies of the past, singing melodies that are part of the historical communities living in the country a long time ago, playing, at the same time, rhythms of the new Gypsy caravans nowadays.
A very special musical travel, even in Italy few people knew about it, developed through the Sinti and Manouche swing of the Alpes, the saltarello of the Molise and Abruzzo, the frenetic tarantella from Sicily, the ritual pizzica of Salento.
Acquaragia Drom plays using an "ironic and corrosive" way to present this repertoire in order to make the audience laugh and dance, but also to open their mind about Gypsy problems.
