Mar 15, 2016 770

Hailing from Italy's red hot Puglia region, and hot on the heels of their Fall '15 US debut concerts, Kalàscima announces a pair of showcase appearances at the annual SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. The Salento-based 6-piece band's innovative mix of Electronic Music and Southern Italian Folk has made them a festival favorite for the past fifteen years — from La Notte della Taranta to international tour stops in Australia, Latin America, the Middle East and Northern Europe. Leading off with a set at Russian House on Wednesday, March 16th, Kalàscima hits the SX16 stage again on Thursday, March 17th at Flamingo Cantina. On Friday the band make a dash back across the Atlantic for a Saturday, March 19th concert at the Babel Med Music event in Marseilles, France.

A Top-10 entry for "Psychedelic Trance Tarantella" in the global trend-setting World Music Charts Europe for April 2015 marked Kalàscima's second album and their first release on Ponderosa Music & Art, also the label home to Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino and Ludovico Einaudi's Taranta Project. "Psychedelic Trance Tarantella" features the piano work of maestro Ludovico Einaudi on the track "Due mari" (Two seas). It was nominated for 2015's Best Album in Dialect by Italy's prestigious Tenco Prize.
