A journey through the most beautiful songs, from the Beatles to Radiohead with:
Sara Bergamini, Voice
Francesco Annunziata, Drum
Damiano Calloni, Keyboards and Bass
A journey through the most beautiful and significant songs of modern music: a journey made of sounds and emotions that has its roots in the American and English tradition but also in its most international declinations. This journey starts from the Beatles, passing by Stevie Wonder and Radiohead, revised in a jazzy key, and with soft and sophisticated sounds, in a perfect mix of up-tempo, medium-swing and ballad to please the most refined listeners, but also those who approach Jazz for the first time. The songs transform, dilate their structures arriving at improvisations originally foreign to the song form. It is here that the world of music, rock and jazz blend, in a unique and particular way, that distinguishes the unique sound of this project.
Sara Bergamini. Singer-songwriter and performer, at the age of ten he began to study piano and modern singing. He began to approach jazz in 2008 thanks to the musical movement of Barga, in particular thanks to M Giancarlo Rizzardi, founder of the Barga Jazz Festival. He attended the three-year academic Jazz Singing at the Conservatory of Livorno directed by Mauro Grossi, is part of the “Jubilum Jazz Chorus” directed by Piero Gaddi, takes care of various acoustic projects and teaches singing in some music schools in his area. She joined the project of the “Campus della Musica”, directed by Claudio Fabi, in 2016. Growing up listening to Chopin and Zucchero, influenced by the sounds of Celtic music and jazz, his style and character remain strongly linked to the rock of his beloved Beatles, pop rock and contemporary songwriting. He manages to mix all these wonders to create his own recipe, expressing himself with a mostly acoustic sound with a bit of Country nuances.
