Global Mashup Concert: Southern Italy Meets Senegal Meets Klezmer

Klezmer star Frank London joins Italian songstress Alessandra Belloni and Senegalese drummer Alioune Faye in Flushing Town Hall’s Next “Mashup” Concert.

Series curator and acclaimed Klezmer trumpeter and composer, Frank London, will join this program’s featured artists as a special, musical guest.

Alessandra Belloni is a singer, percussionist, dancer, and actress. She specializes in traditional Southern Italian folk dances and percussion combined with vocals. Her voice has been described by The New York Times as “exultant.” The Los Angeles Times says Belloni is “a virtuoso” with “an enormously powerful presence.”

Born in Rome, Belloni is committed to preserving the strong and rich traditions of her culture. She is the founder, artistic director, and lead performer of “I GIULLARI DI PIAZZA,” an Italian ensemble in residence at New York City’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine and designer of a line of tambourines belonging to a signature series made by Remo. She has performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Joe’s Pub, and Madison Square Garden, as well as at drumming and world music festivals across the globe.

Alioune Faye hails from a long line of Senegalese drummers and griots (wandering musicians, poets, singers, and historians). He has worked with such greats as Youssou N’dour, Stevie Wonder, and Peter Gabriel, as well as with Senegal’s premier sabar ensemble, Sing Sing Rhythm. He plays sabar, tama and djembe. Currently based in New York, Faye is the leader of the group Yakar Rhythms.
