Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the Ambrassband
An extra festive Boxing Day evening with the Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the brilliant Ambrassband from Belgium. Ambrassband is an international 12-piece fanfare that was put together in Antwerp by Gregor Engelen (Antwerp Gypsy-Ska). Their music is virtuoso, raw, and stomping.
Thursday 30 January 2020 – Tarantella Frenzy
Amsterdam Klezmer Band with Vincenzo Acquaria Castellana (Sicily)
The Tarantella, a fast and frenzied dance, comes from southern Italy; it is one of the most well-known dances in the country. Its oldest form is called pizzica. The name is thought to come from the tarantula spider, whose deadly bite could be cured only by dancing wildly for hours. Could this be true? No spiders this evening… but you’ll dance till you drop!
