Italian Gypsy virtuosos OPA CUPA perform dinnertime show Sunday at Tangier!

OPA CUPA (Lecce, Italy) 7:00p

Opa Cupa! (read: "Opa chupa"), it's a shout of exhortation to the dance used by gypsies of South-Eastern Europe. Musicians coming from different cultures (Bosnia-Erzegovina, Albany South Italy) gather around the leader, the trumpeteer Cesare DellAnna.

This 12 piece band play a "marginal" music, blending the kaleidoscopic sounds and fascinating melodies of ancients Balkan songs with the traditional music of southern Italy.
