SPECIAL ENCOUNTERS...

 
The friendship of the two internationally renowned artists spans long decades, they have played together several times during their careers in larger formations, but tonight is a very exceptional occasion: this is the duo’s first open-air performance. The program of the concert is made up of a wide variety of sometimes very distant musical genres, which miraculously meet in the end in the performance of the two artists, thus creating a new, exceptionally colourful world of music. Through their performance, they create their own form of music giving a new, particular interpretation of jazz, world music, Argentine tango and the music of the Balkans. Their concert is a perfect occasion to discover the rich colours, real musical depths and humour, offering an unforgettable experience for the public and the artists as well.
