Music, Paolo Fresu Quintet jazz up India
(May 14) - The best Italian jazz music to celebrate 20 years of the Italian Culture Centre in New Delhi. The show will be the beginning of the celebration that will highlight the versatility of the centre: music, art, literature, science and food. Protagonist of the concert will be Paolo Fresu, renowned Italian trumpet player, with his quintet: Tino Tracanna, tenor and soprano sax, Roberto Cipelli, piano, Attilio Zanchi, double bass, and Ettore Fioravanti, drums. Their performance is scheduled for this evening at the Siri Fort Auditorium in New Dehli. It is a rare opportunity for jazz enthusiasts in the city to see them live, because though the award winning group has performed extensively worldwide, and recorded for international radio and television stations, this is their first visit to India. ICC director Angela Terezza commented the upcoming show, "It wasn't easy to bring them to perform here because of their packed schedule, but we're very happy we managed as the public for jazz here is big now. Jazz is a universal language, and even those who are unfamiliar with the genre will love the performance." The event is organized by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy. (Red)
