                "We are all one"




Hailing straight from the boot of Italy, Tarantola is a Mediterranean Gypsy-Folk band that brings "Taranta", the traditional music of Salento to the British music scene. 

Tarantola comprises six energetic musicians who come from different corners of the world - Italy, Brasil, Spain, China, Cyprus and England – and who share their diverse musical influences to bring vibrant energetic performances to international audiences. Their shows combine elements of circus and a strong sense of theatre together with captivating songs that will not let your feet keep still!


Their EP, "Rogue Rouge Circus", containing four singles, each released monthly, from the 18th of January 2019 to mid-June 2019! 


Each song brings to life an episode, an intriguing and provocative story, about the relationships, adventures and mysteries, behind the canvas doors of the circus tent.

You will hear authentic tambourine rhythms grooving with enchanting whistles and violins, reminiscent of the circus, the sea, the tradition, the legend and the mysticism belonging to "brown skin people" of the Mediterranean lands.

Tarantola will be touring in England, Italy, and Spain for the summer of 2019.

You'll enjoy a perfect communion of wild gypsy music and Latin vibes with breathtaking circus performances.

Tarantola bites her victims and steals their souls, making them dance without rest in a unique live show.
