Shakti Sisterhood Guest Artists

Alessandra Belloni

Director of New York’s Italian theatre group I Giullari Di Piazza and author of the book/DVD Rhythm is the Cure, Alessandra will introduce us to the rich rhythm and dance tradition of Southern Italy known as the Tarantella. Originally done mainly by women, it dates back to the rites of the Mother Earth Goddess Cybele, now worshiped as the Black Madonna. Alessandra guides us in experiencing the healing and stress-relieving effect of these rhythms and dances.
