MINAFRIC ORCHESTRA - Jazz Live Act in ITALY

MINAFRIC ORCHESTRA Short Info

An italian all-Southern sound which draws from both a Real and an Imaginary South. A land in continuous metamorphosis which has geographically been a natural Bridge and Port throughout the centuries towards the East, the Mediterranean, Africa, the Balkans and today towards the New Europe. MINAFRIC ORCHESTRA is a Warm and Generous Sound, tormented and dramatic, where the Cry, the Melody, the Rhythm, the Irony and Improvisation work together in a strange equilibrium.
In the MinAfrìc music there’s an irrisistible vital energy that is intrinsic to jazz mixed with popular and ethnic music, both local and music from around the world; in fact it’s impossible not to think of the antique Greek civilization and its forgotten divinity, which, whether we are conscious of it or not, we have all come from. Among the Gods is Dionysus and his imagination, the God of uncontrolled impulses, unrestrained dancing, irrationality, folly.
