The nonconformist musical multi-instrumentalist Enzo Favata brings a new band to the international scene.

The Sardinian saxophone wizard has an unquenchable spirit of adventure, and here he is with a new band that makes his music seem even more vital and essential. It is a fresh musical mix, with vibes and electronics, electric piano bass synths and live electronics, drums that create wonderfully light and springy atmospheres for Favata's slender soprano and delightful deep, dark clarinet.

To interpret new suggestions and new sound colors, Favata brought together the pianist and composer Simone Graziano, in an original guise of synth bass, keyboards & live electronics. To the vibraphone Pasquale Mirra, considered one of the masters of this instrument. He completes the Marco Frattini quartet on drums and drum machine.

Music opens up to the world of new generations and to the sounds of current music, but always with a vision that confronts the magical realism of the poetics of the multi- instrumentalist Enzo Favata. The sound alternates between electronic music, jazz, cosmic rock, Ethiopian and Balinese sounds, in a kaleidoscope of colors and melodies.

Enzo Favata: soprano sax, bass clarinet, soprano bandoneon & live electronics

Pasquale Mirra: midi marimba, samplers & live electronics
