Luca Ciarla solOrkestra

Italian violinist Luca Ciarla draws a new musical route in the Mediterranean with a loop pedal, his voice and a few toy instruments. He performs in solo and strictly live all his band score, playing the violin also like a guitar, a cello or percussion. In this imaginative musical landscape Luca sings, whistles, plays other instruments or adds new improvisations; music is continuously evolving into a dazzling solOrkestra. The program Mediterramìa features unusual arrangements of traditional Italian folk tunes, music from the Mediterranean area and original compositions. “…a magical acoustic seduction where everybody can find familiar influences…from genuine folk to sophisticated jazz.” Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italy)

In collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago
