  • 9 p.m at Scotto Garden 

DAVIDE AMBROGIO, EVOCATIONS AND INVOCATIONS - RITUAL SONGS OF ASPROMONTE. Davide Ambrogio masterfully captures the vast tapestry of Mediterranean culture, which extends from Albania to Greece, from Italy to the Arab world. Raised in a small town in the Aspromonte, a mountainous area in the extreme south-west of Italy, in Calabria, David was surrounded by ancient religious rites and devotional songs still very alive. Attached to his Calabrian roots, he drew on the region’s oral traditions to create his own distinctive musical language.
In live, the Calabrian artist builds around the voice an immersive show through the use of lyre, guitar with pencils, frame drum, zumpettana, zampogna and live electronics. In the research of timbre, melodic and rhythmic, the show tells an intimate and current truth, able to evoke different suggestions.

  • 10 p.m. at Scotto Garden

RAIZ sings SERGIO BRUNI with RAIZ and RADICANTO. Raiz is a multifaceted artist who travels between music and cinema. Leader and voice of Almamegretta, in recent years he has also established himself as an actor acting in various films (Passion of John Turturro; Ammore and Malavita of Manetti Bros; Mixed by Erri of Sidney Sibilia) and fiction (Mare Fuori). In February 2023 he released the album Si ll'ammore è 'o ccuntrario d'a morte, dedicated to Sergio Bruni and arranged by Giuseppe De Trizio, who takes on tour in Italy and abroad together with the band he has collaborated with for years, Radicanto.

The project in fact involves Radicanto, a formation born in Bari in 1996 by Giuseppe De Trizio who together with Adolfo La Volpe is to lutes; they accompany Francesco De Palma to percussion, Giovanni Chiapparino to accordion, Giorgio Vendola to double bass. The set list of the show includes some of the most famous songs by Sergio Bruni, a well-known Neapolitan author who died in 2003. Among these we remember Carmela, Na' Bruna and Indifferentemente. Raiz will also pay homage to the public with some of his best-known pieces.

Event in collaboration with Ass. Studentesca Ritmi Meridiani. Free admission.

SATURDAY 6 JULY - from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Jazz Lab in Via Bovio

VOICES LISTENING.  Singing workshop with Davide Ambrogio

The aim of Voci In Ascolto is to deepen the instrument-voice through songs from the repertoire of oral tradition of different parts of Italy. In live meetings the study of these polyphonies gives the opportunity to know and learn new aesthetic and interpretative elements, so you can enrich your musical vocabulary in technical and artistic terms.
The melodic, timbral, harmonic and rhythmic aspects of the songs are analyzed through an oral approach focused mainly on play, imitation, improvisation and the development of memory related to sound and words without the help of lyrics and scores.

Initiative in collaboration with Ass. Studentesca Ritmi Meridiani
Self-managed activity carried out with the financial contribution of the University of Pisa. Free admission by reservation.

THURSDAY 18 JULY - at 21.30 at Scotto Garden
