The last work from Lu Rusciu Nosciu is about the use of pizzica as a healing method to "cure" woman from the Tarantola's poison through the sound of tamburello till the "ill" woman was to fall on the ground in a state of catalepsy. This phenomena, still happening in Salento, are healed through music and the and cult of Holy St. Paul. Pizzica tarantata is the music to heal these "cases" (that in real life are connected with depression) and is the most frenzied dance that get out in a real "raving dance".
Another success for this well-famous group that has chosen to record all the classics songs from the repertoire of pizzica tarantata.
