At NaturArte, in Viggianello, the province of Potenza (Italy), will perform the duo of accordionist Luciano Biondini and Javier Girotto, argentine saxophonist and flutist. The concert is scheduled for 6:00 am on Saturday 20 July, that is, more or less at dawn.
The project that sees these two musicians work has been tested on many occasions and in different forms, in the context of a trial and an amalgam that made the famous duo, both for live performances, marked by profound empathy, lyricism and depth, both for the record productions, in which flow international jazz matrices and a set of originality and folklore.
El Cacerolazo is the duo’s first album, dedicated to the people of Argentina and anti-war protests that have been made the bearer (the term “el cacerolazo” indicates their peaceful protest during which they are beating the pots). It is dated 2002 and was produced by the Philology. In 2005 they published, for the label Enja, Terra Madre, a larger project in which the dialogue between the two musicians become more intense. As you can read on Jazzitalia, in one of the many reviews of the album: “Free to chase, seek, find, sustain itself. Weaving minute by minute the plot of a musical symbiosis absolutely perfect, magical, real, full of music, stories and poetry. Biondini and Girotto thake the same thin thread that unites them and they rush where they did not know to be able to reach. Track after track discover such an affinity that becomes more remarked right in the moment in which one becomes the complement of the other”.
