Novara, Italy

Canaja Brass Quintet

The brass quintet Canaja Brass was born within the walls of the Conservatorio Guido Cantelli in Novara. The ensemble proposes varied programmes, which captivate the audience in a journey through time and places, without detracting from the irony and irreverent aspect that make five guys true... canajas.

Varese, Italy

La Luna a Mezzanotte

La Luna a Mezzanotte is an acoustic duo featuring Greta Ricciardi (vocals and acoustic guitar) and Gianluca Vasco (vocals and electric guitar).
Both in love with music, the musicians of the Varese duo perform covers of Italian and international artists, all arranged in an acoustic version, focusing on the communicative power of music and the emotions contained in the songs' lyrics.

Today, the group's repertoire ranges between the sounds of Bruno Mars and the Pinguini Tattici Nucleari amidst rhythm, colour and versatility.
