Lizard Lounge is proud to welcome Newpoli to the stage on January 18 for an unforgettable evening of music!

Newpoli is a unique group with a powerful sound and a 21st century take on southern Italian tradition that is beyond comparison. With exciting interpretations of traditional and originals that draw deeply from one of the world’s lesser known music traditions, Newpoli is Italy’s next inspiring interpreter of southern Italy’s taranta tradition. Expect an evening of 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.”

Singers Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi were described as “visual and musical cynosures with their contrasting looks and twining vocal lines” by PopMatters, and full of "passion and excitement!" by fRoots, UK.

At Lizard Lounge in Porter Square, you’ll hear the tamburello, played by virtuoso Fabio Pirozzolo, pounding out the heartbeat of Newpoli’s 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!
