The multi-instrumentalist returns for concerts in New York and Boston. This time he’s showcasing the tradition and flavor of the taranta. "I hope that Italians and the children of Italians will attend, those who have connections to the music’s historical roots, but we also hope to attract a local audience."
Mauro Pagani has been a steady presence at the Notte Della Taranta as its “Maestro Concertatore” from 2007 to 2009. Other than being a key figure in folk music, he was also a member of PFM, the historical progressive-rock band and first Italian group to achieve success abroad in both the British and American charts. He worked side by side with first-class singer-songwriters such as Fabrizio De Andrè (as its co-author, arranger, and artistic producer, winning two ‘Album Of The Year’ awards), Ornella Vanoni, Roberto Vecchioni and Gianna Nannini.
