Luca Ciarla's “Jazz Violin 2.0” (ITALY)
Luca Ciarla (violin, vocals, live loops & electronics)
A creative and surprising Italian 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. Luca Ciarla has successfully performed in jazz, classical and world music festivals and concert series in more than fifty countries in the world; from Montreal Jazz Festival to the Hong Kong Performing Arts Centre, the Villa-Lobos Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Melbourne Jazz Festival, among others.
In his solo project Jazz Violin 2.0, he redraws the borders of jazz violin with a loop pedal, his voice and electronics. Step by step, he performs live all the parts, playing his instrument like a guitar, a bass or a percussion instrument, unfolding new improvisations and virtuoso passages. In this imaginative landscape, Luca sings, whistles and plays other little instruments; music is continuously evolving into an astonishing solo jazz band!
