Phil Manzanera and Paul Simonon have teamed up with Tony Allen

Phil Manzanera and Paul Simonon have teamed up with Tony Allen and a number of other musicians to perform at an Italian music festival.

Manzanera, Simonon and Allen will be joined by Italian musician Ligabue, Columbian singer Andrea Echeverri and London-based violinist Anna Phoebe for a performance at the La Notte della Taranta, taking place in Salento in the south of Italy on August 22.

Manzanera serves as the festival’s Maestro Concertatore this year.

“I’m delighted that La Notte della Taranta has attracted such wonderful artists,” says Manzanera. “And it’s a tribute to the fine local muscians and dancers that they want to be part of this incredible concert. I’m hoping that this year, all of us performing can ensure that one of Italy’s best kept secrets, reaches a wider international audience.”
