Odio l’estate

In an overall view, the Odio Festival in the Summer 2010 boasts an international spirit, ranging from original Italian and American jazz productions to the author’s song to traditional folk music. For the first time the City of Rome authorizes the location of the extraordinary Villa Carpegna, in particular the large area adjacent to the main entrance, for a musical artistic event.

The entrance for all to the concerts will be free of charge, thus allowing total enjoyment by the public, complementing the spectacular event with a social and cultural dissemination service. An exception will be the concert of Gino Paoli “An Encounter in Jazz” for which an entrance ticket is provided.

An international exhibition, therefore, with original projects and productions, for years a characteristic element of the events promoted by the Cultural Association “The Treaty of the Captain” realized in collaboration with the Saint Louis College of Music.

What identifies the Villa Carpegna Festival “Hate the Summer”, characterizing it compared to a simple review, is precisely the presence of completely new projects, designed and thought for the occasion; in this sense it moves all the programming of ROMA JAZZ’S COOL (from 30 August to 6 September) where each concert is unique, determined by the encounter between American and Italian artists, choices operated by the artistic direction of the Festival, in the balance between musical affinities and strong generational contrasts.

Following the natural inclination of Saint Louis, which has as its institutional purpose to train the new generations of musicians, the Festival offers many young talented artists, both with their own formations and on stage alongside the great names. Some examples, the duo of Aaron Goldberg with the eighteen-year-old Alessandro Lanzoni, the group of Ben Allison and Fabrizio Bosso which hosts the young pianist Claudio Filippini, the bassist Gabriele Evangelista who will play with Roberto Gatto and Chris Potter, the quartet of Laura Lala and Sade Mangiaracina, a true pop-jazz revelation of last year that will open the concert of Gino Paoli, and the very young Atome Primitif, opening act of the concert Simone Cristicchi. And many others.

Each evening includes three appointments
A jazz aperitif with cutting-edge artists and presentations of editorial and discographic novelty, meeting with authors
21 hours CONCERT
At 22.30 a.m. the second evening alternates with new authors proposals, jam session and an original review of authors cinema with live soundtracks.

Project MIGALA

Project Migala is born from the intention of undertaking a musical journey that, starting from the popular traditions of central-southern Italy, reaches to the ethnic sounds of world music.

The group thus sets up a search for sound to respect the Traditions lived in contact with “other musical cultures” within what is now increasingly a “global village”.

Based on this concept, traditional popular songs from central-southern Italy are reworked and characterized by a fusion with Balkan, Mediterranean, Afro and Irish sounds.

The journey within this sound landscape takes place thanks to the diverse musical experience of musicians influenced by popular research, ambient music, blues, Afro-Mediterranean and Irish “ethnic” sounds for a dance of peace between Us, among the peoples.

Francesco Loccisano trio

Francesco Loccisano began his guitar studies at the age of nine, and at ten he formed his first group with which he performed intensely throughout southern Italy. At the age of 22, under the guidance of the Master Salvatore Gullace, he obtained the Lower Completion at the Conservatory of Music of S. Giacomantonio di Cosenza.

He undertook his studies of Flamenco Guitar in Seville by visiting musicians and popular places in Andalusia. Following a research and composition activity with several musicians from the Calabria folk music landscape, he approaches some of the traditional instruments (tamborello, organetto and beat guitar), with particular attention to beat guitar, on which he makes structural changes and develops a personal style of composition.

In the field of Calabria research music, he plays as a guitarist and arranger of several discography works and participates in the most important festivals and reviews of ethnic music (Sanremo 2008, Womad, Tarantella Power, Festival dello Stretto, Paleariza, Sfinks, Stimmen, Premio Matteo Salvatore, Bardentreffen, etc.) In 2005 he accompanied Pietra Montecorvino on the Mediterranean tour of Naples in Italy, Spain and France. For the theatre he composed the music of the brilliant comedy “Il Droghiere”, text by Giorgio Salieri and “IL SONNAMBULO” by Bruno Papalia, produced by the Spontaneo Group of Bovalino.

Guest at the Roma Tarantella Festival, for television he collaborated as a guitarist in the production of the soundtrack of the film “IL PADRE DELLE SPOSE”, directed by LINO BANFI and music by Eugenio Bennato. He currently collaborates as a guitarist and arranger with Eugenio Bennato, with whom he has played at the most important World Music festivals.

Orchestra Roma tarantella

It was born in 1975, preferring in its repertoire the popular music of central-south Italy, the songs proposed in the concerts are the result, both of research carried out in the field, and of the proposal of known songs of the Italian popular tradition.

CavallaroThe group’s curriculum includes participation in important events, including the Concert in the Stenditoio Hall in the monumental complex of San Michele in Ripa – Rome, organized by the Ministry of Cultural Property, Ancient Feast of St John in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, Rome, guest Mimmo Epifani, Kaulonia tarantella festival XIth edition Caulonia -RC, with the direction of Eugenio Bennato, 34th international festival of the harmonica -Castelfidardo – MC.

8 September


It is not possible to speak of Calabria tarantula except as a geographical denominator that fits into a widespread and fragmented universe.

The myth of the tarantula has here generated a music and a dance that in each country assumes precise and different connotations, manifests itself in a variety of versions and styles linked to a history of cultures, exchanges, settlements that have acted in a diversified way in every province, in every valley and in every village.

TarantaThe differences between one area and another are reflected everywhere in an overall way on the structures of the melody and rhythm and therefore on the dance, on the style of the steps, their magnitude, the figurations and the speed.

Mimmo Cavallaro – TaranProjet, is a means for the expression of this articulate musical language by expressing itself through the sounds of ancient rhythms and instruments of Calabria tradition. Epigones of a fabulous past but also witnessing a living and expanding present, they project the Calabria tarantula into contemporary European ethnic music without betraying its origins.

Mimmo Epifani & Epifani Barbes

Zucchini Flowers, the latest album by Mimmo Epifani, materializes the Mediterranean colour and sound of the virtuous Pugliese mandolinist and original performer who, with a good dose of irony, manages to break away from the great popular tradition without ever giving up its deepest roots.

The dialect becomes an expressive language because it can tell stories, facts and anecdotes of an ancient culture linked to the earth, to the rhythms of nature and to a lost wisdom that Mimmo Epifani translates into a heart of sugar and lemon, raped philastrocks, overwhelming pizzicas and hypnotic rhythm.

From the salon of the barber of San Vito dei Normanni near Brindisi, where he learns the art of the mandolin from the masters Costantino Vita, barber and musician, and “Master” Peppu D’Augusta who played the pizzica (a therapeutic dance of the Salento also known as Ballo di Sant Vito), Mimmo Epifani perfected the technique of the instrument, contaminating it with the most diverse musical experiences: jazz, reggae, ska rhythms. Always on a journey, for about twenty years, he has played with great artists such as Roberto de Simone, Massimo Ranieri, Eugenio Bennato with whom he founded the Taranta Power movement and then Antonio Infantino, Caterina Bueno, Matteo Salvatore, Ambrogio Sparagna.

For a few years she has been actively collaborating with Fausto Mesolella of Avion Travel who has curated the arrangements of the latest album Zucchini Flowers and with Danilo Rea, Furio Di Castri, Rita Marcotulli participates in the project dedicated to Domenico Modugno: Uomini in Frac, making a record at the house of jazz in Rome.

His instinctive and profound musicality drives him to constantly search for new territories and modern sounds that make him an international artist with a strong tendency to independence and to explore new cultures. His musical path is intertwined with that of Josè Barros, Ttkunack and in recent months also with Tonino Carotone.
