Let’s Celebrate with a Sicilian Tarantella


Let’s celebrate! It’s the first day of summer! Today, my band Villa Palagonia is participating in Make Music New York 2014 in New York City. And although we won’t be dressed like the dancers painted on this traditional tamburello that I photographed in a tailor shop in Palermo’s historic center, I will be playing my modern Sicilian tamburello purchased not far from where this was taken.

Join us in Central Park at 2:30PM and Pera Soho at 7:15PM tonight. See the Events page for locations.
