Inspired by homonymous Apulian folkloristic events, Sagra Elettronica is an experimental multidisciplinary festival taking place in a Masseria – a fortified farmhouse building, typical to the region. The one-day festival aiming to push the boundaries imposed by superstructure, tears apart the categories and genres that have defined discrimination, and houses a hybrid civilization which thrives in a renewed collective consciousness.
From dusk until well beyond dawn, the twelve hours will be brimming with pulsating rhythms spanning from early, noir dub and digi-dancehall to avant-garde electronic and fast club-culture. The esoteric ritual of Tarantata and diverse body performances will enchant guests, while local heroes and well known artists like Aisha Devi, Nkisi and Jay Glass Dubs will deliver steady doses of transcending tunes designed to liberate minds.
The event will be complete with food stands selling a wide choice of local specialties, craft beers, as well as a dissident book corner and an alternative market selling a mix of original fashion, hand-crafted accessories, unique gifts and everything in between. This mystical experience will be further intensified by other stimulating inputs, like, for instance, the timeless connection between expressionist Ugo Tapparini’s retrospective paintings and contemporary installations about dramatic Mediterranean realities – specifically, the international “Fata Morgana” exhibition by photography artist Alessia Rollo, plus other coherent art showcases.
