Candiani Groove, with a beautiful presence
di Redazione VeNews

At the Candiani in Mestre, a program that has never stopped but transformed, like the public of the last two years, continues.

Candiani Groove is the Candiani Cultural Centre programme of live music, which has also been producing streaming events when the circumstances called for it. Today, we are all clear to attend concerts in person again and at Candiani, everybody is ready to enjoy the sound of their excellent offering. On April 1, Fanfara Station celebrates the epic of Mediterranean migration and the musical culture of African diaspora that unites the Middle East with the Maghreb, Europe, and the Americas. A powerful trio will be behind a dance party, with the aid of two loop stations that will allow them to overdub different tracks and manipulate acoustic and synthesized sound.

Another concert you won’t want to miss will be on Saturday, April 23 – Hungarian band Djabe will present their new album The Magic Stag. Their unique sound mixes jazz with elements of Hungarian and world music. Djabe’s head composer is Tamás Barabás, a virtuoso bassist. On May 6, Candiani will host Electric Jalaba, a mysterious, syncretic creation of two experiences that are only apparently distant: on one side, English band Soundspecies, eclectic groove adventurers; on the other side, Moroccan musician and gnawa maestro Simo Lagnawi. The last appointment of the Candiani Groove programme will take place on Tuesday, May 17, with Joey Calderazzo and John Patitucci – one of the best pianists of his generation and a great bassist and Grammy Award winner.
