Marcello Allulli/Giovanni Ceccarelli – “Canto”
Marcello Allulli – tenor sax
Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano
This duo brings together two musicians who have been collaborating for twenty years in numerous projects. Among their common collaborations, multi-instrumentalist Aki Montoya’s group Trioakì focused on crossover music merging North Indian music and contemporary jazz. The trio played in concert with the great, late clarinetist and composer Tony Scott.
Both experienced artists in performances involving different forms of expressions, Allulli and Ceccarelli compose original music which they perform for live soundtracks to silent movies.
“Canto” is the title of the duo’s album which was released in 2019. It presents original music – including two medley of their compositions for live soundtracks – and tunes by composers Hermeto Pascoal and Aki Montoya. Their music takes inspiration from jazz, folklore, India, Brazil, and spontaneous improvisation. “Canto” was produced by Italian independent label ProMu.
Marcello Allulli and GiovanniCeccarelli played together in numerous prestigious venues around the world, including the European Film Festival in Beirut; the Festa do Cinema Italiano in Cascais and the Dia Europeu das Línguas in Óbidos, Portugal; the Italian Cultural Institutes in Paris and Helsinki; the Sensorium festival in Panjim, the Festival of the Arts in Delhi, plus a two-week long tour across all India.
