• Ludovico Einaudi has collaborated with a group of the world’s most talented musicians to make an album inspired by the passionate rhymical dance music that originated in the Salento region in the southernmost tip of Puglia in the heel of Italy.

• Recorded live on tour and in the studio. According to Einaudi “It sounds like a studio album but with the energy of a live performance. My idea was to bring this music to a more universal level connected to other traditions.”

• The taranta tradition, with its elements of healing trance, dates back many centuries. Says guitarist Justin Adams: “Repetition is part of it because it begins to really go into your soul. That and also an almost operatic sense of dynamic, so epic one moment and the next minute absolutely intimate.”
Reviews For Taranta Project
Mojo - John Bungey
Italian maestro of classical-lite turns up the volume with a Taranta dance blowout. The results are operatic, over the top and often rather wonderful ****
fRoots - Chris Nickson
It's swaggeringly confident, often lush, but always retaining that raw edge that keeps the emotion high. It's a bit of a triumph.
Songlines - Jon Lusk
From the suspenseful orchestral arrangement and accordion drone that opens this diverse, deeply engaging album, it's obvious that this Turin-born classical pianist and composer has ambitious and enjoyable plans for tarantella musics *****
