Tarantella!
Rhythms of the Old Mediterranean
Last summer’s “Mediterranean Roots” program raised the rafters, and now it returns in a fresh, new version. Soulful singers Amanda Powell and Brian Kay celebrate the common ties of Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Arabic cultures, along with a colorful ensemble of plucked instruments, recorder, strings, hammered dulcimer, and exotic percussion. The Lautenwerck – a beautiful lute-like keyboard instrument – makes its debut on the AF stage at the hands of Jeannette Sorrell.

Mediterranean Roots
Dances & Romances from the Ancient World
The waters of the Mediterranean carried ancient traders from Spain and Italy to Greece, North Africa and the Middle East. Their songs, dances, love stories and laments went with them. Guest co-directors Amanda Powell (soprano) and Brian Kay (oud and plucked instruments) lead a colorful ensemble of exotic winds and percussion, fiddle, and hammered dulcimer (cymbalom) in this program celebrating shared multicultural traditions.
