Mario Caroli – Flute, Manuela Cigno – Piano: The design of its programs and the breadth of repertoire show a unique and authentic approach to the profession, as well as a highly personal artistic trajectory. In his recital he is switching from Ferneyhougha Marin Marais with the same disarming simplicity. In his art there are no barriers between the repertoires, and he rejects the classification of “specialist” of a limited kind of repertoire: Mario Caroli belongs to the small circle of artists able to play a classical concert and the most complex contemporary with the virtuosity and the same vivid musicality.

Lello joins all the effects in TINTURIA band, in 1996, started playing keyboards, before becoming the lead singer and frontman of the group.

The artistic vein creative and ingenious of Lello soon becomes the expression and light and irreverent image, but never banal, of the TINTURIA. Author of texts and music, Lello flows in TINTURIA project all his creativity, able to effortlessly from pop to reggae, from funk to rap-with a dash of folk in his Sicilian roots innate moored in Sicilian sea.
