Italian octet Newpoli has helped redefine continental folk music for the third decade of the 21st century. Melding a variety of Mediterranean influences with Turkish rhythmics and Spanish-style melodic romanticism, the band—fronted by vocalists Carmen Marsico and Angela Rossi—plays at the Albuquerque Special Collections Library on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at noon. The concert is free and meant for all ages. It's also being held in one of Albuquerque's most enchanting Pueblo Revival buildings, a registered city landmark built in the style popularized by John Gaw Meem in the mid-1920s. Taken together, this concert experience is sure to be a highlight of the weekly cultural outings available only in The Duke City, N.M. (August March)
