Tamburreddhu – Resistenza sonora Salentina
Salento is a peninsula in Apulia, the southwestern tip of Italy. This is the birthplace of pizzica pizzica, a traditional dance accompanied by singing and a drum called the tamburreddhu.

The documentary shows the struggle to preserve the precious instrument, clarifying its difference from the tamburello, a cheap tourist object with no history.
