Emanuela Lodato (Italy)

We are happy to welcome the Sicilian musician and dancer Emanuela Lodato for the second time at the Tamburi Mundi Festival!

Emanuela is specialised in music and traditional dances of southern Italy. She studies percussion with Massimo Laguardia, and travels through southern Italy to learn dances. She teaches in various cultural centers in Italy and abroad (Macedonia, Tunisia, Poland, Belgium).

Content of the course:


The tammurriata, or "ballo 'ncoppa' o tammure" (dance on the drum) comes from Campania. It is based on a binary rhythm, on which the dancers in couple (mixed or not), move according to a circular scheme and an intense dynamics of the hands, arms, and bust.


The purpose of the workshop is to transmit the basic steps of this traditional dance, the dynamics, the relation with the drum and between the dancers, being based mainly on the "agro nocerino sarnese" style.
