Tarantella is a music genre from the south of Italy. The music exists in many variations, depending on the region it comes from. For example, in Salento they call it pizzica, and in Naples they call it tammurriata. Together with special guest Pierpaolo Sicuro from the Thessaloniki-based folk band Grikanta, volunteers Filip and Arianna explore this genre in this episode of Music Odyssey. Enjoy!
