DC JAZZ FESTIVAL

LUCA CIARLA IN CONCERT

JAZZ VIOLIN 2.0

The Italian Cultural Institute of Washington DC, in collaboration with the DC Jazz Festival, invite you to attend the concert Jazz Violin 2.0, presenting Luca Ciarla.

Italian musician Luca Ciarla redraws the borders of jazz violin with a loop pedal, his voice and electronics. One by one, he performs live all the roles, playing his instrument like a guitar, a bass, or a percussion, unfolding new improvisations and virtuoso passages. In this imaginative landscape Luca sings, whistles, plays other little instruments; music is continuously evolving into an astonishing solo jazz band!

Jazz Violin 2.0 features unusual arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions.

A creative and surprising violinist, Luca Ciarla easily transcends the boundaries among genres to trace an innovative musical path, a magical acoustic seduction in perfect balance between written compositions and improvisation, traditional and contemporary sounds. He has successfully performed in jazz, classical and world music festivals and concert series in almost 50 countries in the world; from Montreal Jazz Festival to the Hong Kong Performing Arts Centre, from Celtic Connections in Scotland to the Villa-Lobos Festival in Rio de Janeiro, from Melbourne Jazz Festival to the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Italy. “…one of the most interesting violinists nowadays on the international scene, capable of browsing around different sounds and genres without ever losing his unmistakable style.” la Repubblica (Italy)
