About the Event

Sanacori is a Southern Italian idiom for 'heart healers'. They are also a versatile and vibrant music ensemble reinterpreting traditional songs from Italy and the Mediterranean (Albania, Greece, Spain). Tastefully combining traditional and contemporary elements to their performances with soulful singing and storytelling.

Songs of love and longing, resistance and rebellion, with passion and cheekiness, elemental traits of Italian attitude and culture. Sanacori often work with Melbourne School of Tarantella. Tarantella is a dance of many different codes and symbolism that allows individual expression in a group setting, still a useful tool of communication. Together they create a welcoming and supportive environment where people of all ages and cultural backgrounds can connect and cooperate while learning the richness of this forgotten tradition.

Sancori is: Rosa Voto (vocals, tamburello, whistle, dance), Phil Carroll (accordion, ciaramella, flute and nay) and Renato Vacirca (guitar, percussions, vocals).

Pop by on Sunday 12 March you'll see Vinod Prasanna and Leo Dale rehearsing all sorts of interweaving melodies on bansuri, saxophone and more.
