We love Italian Music!
The Tarantellas are a remarkable acoustic duo that specialize in playing the "Legendary Favorite Songs of Italy". With an Italian Bowlback Mandolin, Accordion or Acoustic Guitar, Chromatic Mouth Organ, Friscalettu (Sicilian Cane Flute),and Harmony Vocals, their sound evokes the sunny skies and love for life of the Italian culture. Romantic Love Songs, Classical Waltzes, haunting Sicilian Mazurkas, and wild Tarantella Dances are all part of the authentic mix of Melodies Italiano.
Anyone who loves Italian food and wine, (and who doesn't?), will be enthralled by the beauty and grace (and sense of humor) of Italian Music. Unlike today's pop songs which come and go, many of these tunes have endured for hundreds of years, and are known and loved the world over. The melodies and rhythms are irresistible for young and old alike, and The Tarantellas will make them come alive for you!
The Tarantellas are available to entertain you and your guests, both as a Duo or as a Solo performance by Richard Sclafani, at Weddings, Receptions, Concert Halls, Private and Corporate Parties, Wine Tastings, Ethnic Music Events, Retirement and Assisted Living Communities, Italian Restaurants, Birthdays, Festivals etc.
We can perform acoustically, as "strolling musicians", or with amplification using our PA System or yours.
