Sydney – Music, Paolo Angeli stages “Sardinian Landscape” in Australia

The “Vivacissimo” cycle, organised and almost entirely produced by the Italian Institute of Culture (IIC) in Sydney, is at its 4th edition this year. The Foundry 616, a trend-setting venue on Harris Street in Ultimo, will stage a performance by musician Paolo Angeli from Palau (Sardinia) on 9 June. Angeli’s music group combines a wide range of diverse and multifaceted experiences, spanning from songs accompanied by the traditional guitar of the Gallura and Logoduro regions, to rock, folk and jazz. The different genres explored have combined into a unique musical genre over the years, which music experts usually define with the term “contamination”: compositions suspended between free jazz, folk noise and minimal pop music. Of particular interest is the instrument played: a Sardinian guitar made and played with traditional techniques but also using a bow with pedal-operated percussion hammers applied to it. Paolo Angeli has performed with musicians of the calibre of Pat Metheny, Fred Frith, Jon Rose, Carlo Actis Dato, Antonello Salis and Otomo Yoshide, just to mention the most renowned. In his tour of Australia, during which he performed in the Melbourne Jazz Festival and at the IIC in Melbourne, Angeli will present “Sardinian Landscape” from his latest release, S’U. On 10 June, he will perform in Canberra’s Street Theatre, another event organised by the Italian Embassy and Institute of Culture in Sydney. At The Foundry 616 and in Sydney, he will be accompanied by Mirko Guerrini, a well-known sax player on the Australian music scene. Guerrini, an eclectic composer and multi-instrumentalist, settled in Australia several years ago and has played with Billy Cobham, Brian Auger, Mark Feldman, Stefano Bollani, Enrico Rava, Stefano Battaglia, Paul McCandless, Caetano Veloso, Hermeto Pascoal, Ivano Fossati and Giorgio Gaber.
