Saltare brings together musical and dance traditions from around the world and explores the many ways that dance music is shaped and understood. Saltare originally met in the New England Conservatory of Music’s Contemporary Musical Arts department, where they played in the Middle Eastern Ensemble. They have since moved into many other types of music, including Irish, Transylvanian, American Old Time, and Klezmer music, original compositions, and arrangements of European Classical Music. Each of their ventures explores the ways that rhythm, melody, and groove can create an immersive experience of energy and emotion, and express the joy from movement and dance.
