Etnopolis in Dublin

Luca Ciarla is simply one of the most creative and surprising violinists nowadays. His music 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.

Francesco Turrisi has been defined a “musical alchemist” and a “musical polyglot” by the press.  He left his native Italy in 1997 to study jazz piano and early music at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where he obtained a Bachelor and a Master’s degree. Since 2004 he has been collaborating with celebrated early music ensemble L’Arpeggiata.

Andrea Piccioni, one of the greatest exponents of the art of frame drumming, has developed an extraordinary capacity to move through various musical genres and styles, re-elaborating the language of the Tamburello and various frame drums in a truly personal manner, both virtuosic and expressive. Andrea holds regular workshops and masterclasses at prestigious festivals worldwide, including Big Bang Festival (Dublin, Ireland).
