The Sounds of the Dolomites
Jazz music - Vallesinella Alta.
Gianluca Petrella once again steps out on our festival’s green carpet, this time rolled out in the form of the meadows of Vallesinella Alta, before the Brenta Dolomites. He will take to the stage alongside Riccardo Onori, with whom he shares a particular kind of creativity as well as many job titles: in fact, both are composers, instrumentalists, producers and, above all, musicians unconstrained by any preconceptions.
They roam freely and with ease between jazz and electronica, pop and psychedelia, as well as more classical musical styles, all in an attempt to capture both experimentation and tradition in a richly woven process. Both artists have built up careers involving close associations with the singer Lorenzo Jovanotti and through smooth polyphonic projects such as Onori’s Sonoristan and the more recent album The Invisible Session. Echoes of Africa, on which the two collaborated together.
This is a meeting of two constantly evolving creative minds, which listeners will perceive as a fusion of simultaneously historical and contemporary musical influences. This duality allows the pair to embody the complexity of infinite worlds, capable of overcoming dichotomies and rigid ways of thinking and of tearing down barricades, starting by dispelling sensorial and mental barriers from the very first beat.
