Southern Italian and Native American Ritual Drumming and Dance. Special Guests: the SilverCloud Native American Singers & Dancers. In "Drums of Illumination" Alessandra Belloni unites two great cultures: the powerful Native American, and the passionate Southern Italian, for a journey back in time into a world of ritual drumming, voice and trance dances. Internationally renowned singer/dancer/percussionist Alessandra Belloni and I Giullari di Piazza present "Drums of Illumination," a program of ritual drumming, trance dances, and chants representing two great cultural traditions: Southern Italian and Native American.

Belloni and I Giullari will be joined by the SilverCloud Native American Singers and Dancers, completing a remarkable group of percussionists, vocalists and dancers, all specializing in healing and ritual music and dance. The happy and successful relationship between Belloni and I Giullari and Muriel and Kevin Tarrant goes back to 1992, when they worked together in the I Giullari production of "Earth, Sun and Moon," a spectacular show that was commissioned by Lincoln Center and received both critical and audience acclaim.
