Riccardo Tesi: diatonic accordion
Vieri Sturlini: guitar, vocals
Francesco Savoretti: percussion
Riccardo Tesi - internationally renowned accordion player and composer (Banditaliana, Bella Ciao, Accordeon Samurai...) - presents his new solo album La giusta distanza (Visage Music).
His nature as an experimenter, in constant search of renewal, led him to surround himself with new collaborators for the occasion. Thus was born the Elastic Trio, sparkling and malleable, devoted to inclusion, ready from time to time to welcome on board musicians travelling on the same route.
On percussion is the acrobatic Francesco Savoretti, who combines the irresistible groove inherited from his past as a drummer with the colours of frame drums and ethnic percussion, of which he is a true master.
Despite his relatively young age, Francesco Savoretti already has important collaborations to his credit, ranging from world music to early music via jazz, with an intense international concert activity.
On guitars - acoustic and electric - and vocals, the surprising Vieri Sturlini, who boasts an eclectic background from classical to jazz, from folk to singer-songwriter
and various collaborations including Neri Marcorè and singer-songwriter Giua.
