Artist Profiles: Acquaragia Drom

Acquaragia Drom
Acquaragia Drom

Acquaragia Drom is an Italian band with a little Gypsy blood and lots of experience performing at traditional weddings and feasts all around in Italy. Its original music and dance project is an amazing amalgam of Italian and Mediterranean Gypsy style swirling, including Rom saltarellos, tarantellas, pizzicas and tammurriatas (folk dances) from the Sinti tribes. Acquaragia Drom plays using an "ironic and corrosive" way to present this repertoire in order to make the audience laugh and dance with them.

Elia Ciricillo: voice, guitar, tambourine, dance
