NEHH and Mediterraneo Present: Mediterraneo Opening Party
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Mediterraneo is bringing Africa, southern Italy and Scotland crashing into Summerhall for a huge festival opening party. A wild night of live Italian pizzica, Zimbabwean Jit-jive, and electrocharged Scottish folk music. Three bands and 18 musicians, complete with furious tambourines, fiddles, guitars, pipes, marimba and dance moves from three corners of the world. Pizzica and tarantella exponents The Badwills are joined by Zimbabwe legend Rise Kagona (ex Bhundu Boys) with his mighty Jit Jive Band, and Scotlands psychedelic ceilidh maestros Awry.
