Musician

Antares Flare

Active since:

An international sextet based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Antares Flare is making music that is as grounded in earthy rhythms as it is in sonic journeying.

Guitarist Piero Conte, the creative force behind this eclectic setup, is inspired by the entrancing sounds of the Congo rainforests but also the electro-psychedelic atmospheres of Jimi Hendrix and Clever Austin. Taking cues from Jorge Luis Borges and the magical realist movement, he creates a sound that is rebellious and decidedly modern, interspersed with moments of profound clarity.

Since their inception in 2018 the band have played various festivals and clubs in the Netherlands and Italy, also being finalists of the 2021 Erasmus Jazz Prize Competition. Their eponymous debut album was recorded at Labrstract Studio in Rome and distributed on vinyl by Amsterdam-based label Wicked Wax in 2022.

Alessandro Bertozzi

Born:

Nel 1998 ho inciso il mio primo lavoro da solista “BIG CITY DREAMER”, grazie a Lorenzo Poli e Alberto Tafuri che mi hanno dato una bella mano perché io (ma non solo io) mi considero bravo a produrre gli altri ma meno bravo a produrre mè stesso, non è facile essere obiettivi. Nel 2003 sono andato un po’a New York e ho registrato il mio secondo Cd “TALKIN BACK” con tanti musicisti italiani (Lorenzo Poli, Marco “Nano”Orsi, Giorgio di Tullio, Lorenzo de Finti, Alfredo Golino, Giovanni Guerretti, Alberto Venturini, Riccardo Fioravanti, Andrea Carpena, Mario Chiesa, Alberto Tafuri, Erminio Cella) e ospiti americani (Hiram Bullock, Bob James)

Thandi Ntuli

Born:

Exploring the fullness of who she is – who we are – in her personal and collaborative projects, Thandi Ntuli negotiates a wide palette of sound and genre. This approach is a proud embracing of having grown up with the family lore of a classical singer aunt, after whom she is named; an uncle (Selby Ntuli) who was a member of Afro-rock band Harari; and a grandfather (Levi Godlib Ntuli) who – while living with his young family in 1940s Sophiatown, a cultural hub not unlike 1920s Harlem in New York – fostered among his children a tradition of composing, playing and singing music together. This tradition still lives on.
