Sounds of the Dolomites: HalliGalli Quartet
High altitude concerts in Val di Fassa with the best music interpreters
Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival, which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea behind this initiative is simple and fascinating: combining the great passions for music and mountain, for art and environment, in a series of concerts in the sign of freedom and nature. The festival features internationally renowned artists. Organised by Trentino Marketing, in partnership with Val di Fassa Tourist Board.
Sounds of the Dolomites: HalliGalli Quartet. Jazz. Col Margherita (San Pellegrino Pass - Moena), at 12.00 p.m.
Programme: virtuosity and improvisation resound from the string instruments of HalliGalli Quartet. A musical encounter that spans the boundless lands of different musical genres. HalliGalli Quartet is formed by Christoph Mallinger (five-stringed violin as well as voice, mandolin and snare drum with brushes), Elia Bastida (voice, violin and shaker), Marta Roma (voice, cello and tap dance), and Pablo Lòpez (voice and guitar). Swing, gypsy jazz, and rhythms evoking the warmth of Africa and Latin America are woven together by these one-of-a-kind players. Thanks to their signature arrangements, HalliGalli Quartet has crafted its own niche in the musical landscape. Virtuosity and irony, playfulness and elegance will intertwine on the scenic stage of Col Margherita, where the quartet will push every boundary by taking the audience on a journey through unknown shores and daring dances.
