MediTamburi is a show-concert imagined by the passion and the work of Paolo Cimmino, by his intense experience of percussive music lived as exchange-meeting-crossing the rhythms.

In the short and dilated time, which is that of performance, the ensemble leads the audience in a fascinating journey, sometimes oneiric, arm in arm with the drum.

The traditional musics of different peoples and cultures, expand and  merge, giving rise to a new form that escapes all definition of "genre" of music.

The frame drums of Southern Italy and the Mediterranean sound, alongside the typical Latin American rhythms.
African percussions communicate with the Indian ones and fuse through sophisticated melodies and powerfully evocative vocality.
