"Ms. Belloni sang in an exultant voice. The songs blazed with an age-old momentum."Invocations and work songs, exorcisms and lullabies shared the program of ''Rhythm Is the Cure'' in a chapel of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. With combination of voice, hand drums and rustic fiddling, The musicians on Friday night were Alessandra Belloni, a singer and Neapolitan tambourine specialist who has researched ancient songs from southern Italy that show deep Arabic and African influences; Glen Velez, a virtuoso on frame drums, the percussion family that includes the tambourine and the Irish bodhran; and Siba, the leader of the Brazilian band Mestre Ambrosio, which is steeped in the folk styles of northeastern Brazil. The three musicians shared and traded songs, nearly all of them driven by tambourine patterns so fast that the drummers' hands became blurs.
