You Are Not Alone

Tarantola is a London-based Reggae-Dub band that comprises five energetic musicians from Italy, Brasil, and England – and who share their diverse musical influences to bring vibrant, energetic performances and music releases to international audiences.

Mauro Lacandia, the prominent member of the band, hailing straight from Italy’s boot, seeks to recreate the legend of ‘Taranta’ (the traditional music from Salento).
