Sounds of the Dolomites: Penguin Cafe

High altitude concerts in Val di Fassa with the best interpreters of the music

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 is simple and at the same time fascinating: to combine the passion for music and the mountainsart and the environment, in a concert programme celebrating freedom and nature. Participants set off from the valley floor and head for clearings and hollows near the mountain refuges, natural theatres in which the music is performed in complete harmony with the surroundings. The festival features internationally renowned artists who, instruments on their shoulders, display their shared regard for the environment by joining the public in walking to the concert venues, on what is both an art and a nature trail. It’s the outcome of the cooperation between Trentino Marketing and the Val di Fassa Tourist Board.


Sounds of the Dolomites: Penguin Cafe. Music for explorers of boundless spaces. Ciampac (Alba di Canazei), at 12.00 p.m.

Programme: arthur Jeffes is the son of the sculptor Emily Young and Simon Jeffes, who in 1974 founded the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, one of those groups that left an indelible mark on the history of contemporary music, so much so that their first album "Music from the Penguin Café" - released by Brian Eno′s Obscure Records in 1976 - is considered by many to be a forerunner of world music. In fact, Simon Jeffes had developed a keen interest in ethnic music and African styles which he then brought to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra in that unique mix of attention to melody and desire to experiment. This hybrid approach moves across different geographical spaces and different musical periods and it infused all their albums until the death of that extraordinary musician. Arthur Jeffes, eclectic musician and composer, a pianist with an interest in the music of space and who has written several pieces for NASA′s Kepler project, is now frontman of Penguin Café, founded after the 2007 tribute to his father and the formation of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. He went on to transform the line-up bringing in musicians that included Cass Browne of Gorillaz, Neil Codling of Suede, Oli Langford of Florence and the Machine and Darren Berry of Razorlight. The three albums they have released retain the basic musical structure of Jeffes senior, but it is combined with new sensibilities brought by Arthur and his companions. The result is a pervasive and at times celestial music, always inquiring and with the ability to bring distant universes together.


Getting there: from Alba di Canazei on the Ciampac cabin lift and then on foot. Walking time 20 minutes.
