Viamedina (Viamedina)

Via Medina is a street of Naples by the Port, a sort of borderline between the city and the sea, a meeting-point of different cultures and people. Once, in the nearby alleys there were a few nightclubs where tangos and tarantellas, blues and Tammurriate, jazz and popular Neapolitan songs were played and mixed together. Now that the clubs are gone, Viamedina gets a new life in this interesting musical project that, starting from the dialect, the melodies and the instruments of the Neapolitan tradition, takes different roads in order to put a new lymph in an already rich heritage of ancient memories.
