Today I stumbled upon: Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS), formed by writer Rina Durante in 1975, a traditional music ensemble from Salento, Italy. The seven-piece band and dancer perform a contemporary style of Southern Italy’s traditional Pizzica music and dance. The track Lu Guistacofane is taken from their album Canzoniere. You would have to be pretty stiff from the waist down if you failed to move to this beat.
