After the huge success of the previous editions, the 2014 edition of The night of Taranta will take place in and around the striking landscape of Salento from August 5 to 23.
As underlined on our previous post about the captivating Apulian folk dance, this Italian music festival aims at promoting and valorizing the Salento's folk music and its fusion with other types of music – from world music to rock, from jazz to classical music.
The night of Taranta is a traveling festival and every concert will have a different location: Grecìa Salentina, Alessano, Cursi, Galatina and Lecce. The Festival’s grand finale helds in Melpignano and will be attended by more than one hundred thousand fans from all over the world, for a night dedicated to music and dance.
“La notte della Taranta” is able not only to engage and captivate locals and travelers with dance and music, but it is also a great chance to discover Salento and spend a holiday in Puglia under the rhythm of music.
