Lisipi

Three musicians with different backgrounds met in a home studio and realized it was the moment that they had been waiting for all their lives: Liliya Akhmetzyanova on piano; Silvio Canargiu on bass; Pierpaolo Frailis on drums. Liliya is a classically trained pianist. She graduated from Russian conservatory. Always hated jazz and thought that all jazz players are pretentious nerds. Ironically, she met Silvio Canargiu, who is a jazz musician, fell in love with him and, automatically, with jazz. Silvio Canargiu started his professional career in 1992 with sardinian pop bands as guitarist and later singer/guitarist. Went to Sanremo for a pop festival with Nicola Marogna then he played for a long time with Stefano Puddu in France recording a couple of albums such as Zamballarana with Jerome Casalonga's 15 elements ensemble.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
