Product Description

Dedicated to Tarentism, this project tells the story of a centuries-old choreo-musical ritual from Southern Italy, mobilizing frenetic rhythms and maniac dances, designed to exorcise women from a mysterious evil caused by the bite of a spider.

This double LP captures original field recordings of musicians-exorcists registered by Diego Carpitella, Ernesto de Martino and Alan Lomax in the late 1950’s in Puglia as well as six unique reworks by contemporary vanguard electronic musicians and producers such as Bjorn Torske & Trym Søvdsnes, LNS, Uffe, KMRU, Bottin and Don’t DJ.
