Album artwork for Taranta Project by Ludovico Einaudi

Taranta Project is the result of a process of revisiting the work Ludovico did in August 2010 and 2011 as Conductor of the La Notte della Taranta music festival.The material from the festival, a bursting kaleidoscope of musical evocations, has since been experimented with more deeply, as illustrated in this album. The vision with the Taranta music, was to try to breathe new life into the ancient folk songs of the Salento (the ‘heel’ of the Italian boot), which once served as a means of driving out the world’s ills, by building a network of connections with other musical traditions and cultures, aspiring to create a universal language where ancient and modern, sacred and secular, and written tradition and oral tradition can coexist in harmony.
