Alessandra Belloni and Steve Gorn - "Rhythm is the Cure"
Alessandra Belloni is a singer, percussionist, dancer and actress who stands as one of the most important voices of traditional southern Italian music and dance today. She is artist-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and Artistic Director and Founder of I Giullari di Piazza (the "Players of the Square"). For her mastery of musical styles... both at home and abroad... she has been acclaimed as one of the greatest living percussionists in the world, and has her own signature series of Italian tambourines designed with the largest percussion industry in the world, Remo Inc.
Tonight's performance will be Alessandra Belloni on percussion and vocals, with Steve Gorn on bansuri flutes and saxophone.
