The voices, sounds and rhythms of the sea, travelling from the Arab-Andalusian culture, which was a "gateway to the East", and drifting to the other side of the Atlantic, where we find the Latin- American resonances of the Spaniards, finally come home and disembark in Naples, "the gateway to the Mediterranean". Many sacred and ritual elements of the folk traditions and cultures that we encounter on this journey across the music where the seas have their common denominator in the different instruments or voices and drum, which - although its shape and sound may change - still today has a key role in the rite and the celebration.
