Recognised by Downbeat’s Critic’s Poll as a Rising Star, American saxophonist Caroline Davis’ (USA) persona is unique to all her projects – from angular instrumental outfits to soulful song writing.
Her latest album ‘Alula’ stands on the shoulders of pioneering musical activists, providing creative reflection on the injustices present in the system of incarceration in America. It highlights the strength of those who have been, and those who are still incarcerated.
Debora Petrina and Giovanni Mancuso (Italy) present their innovative combination of live music and film.
On stage Mancuso plays pianos with multiple small instruments (toy piano, percussion, synthesiser), and Petrina sings in unknown languages, while simultaneously playing various instruments and running an original film in the background.
Journey with them to another world through their collage of 1930’s silent films, anonymous Super 8 home movies from the 1950s and 60s, and expedition documentaries.
