The genre-spanning music made by the Luca Ciarla Quartet is “neither jazz nor classical, contemporary nor folk. It contains elements of all these styles and even more, but the most prominent characteristic is imaginative power. It is music with color and feeling, music without limits” (Volksblad, South Africa). Led by Luca Ciarla (pronounced chee-ar-lah), a highly creative, virtuoso violinist from Italy who has taught violin and improvisation for several years, the band combines touches of jazz, classical and world music into an unclassifiable global fusion that has mesmerized audiences at festivals and concerts in more than 30 countries around the world. A pervasive Gypsy vibe animates the distinctively Mediterranean sound of the quartet, which includes, in addition to Ciarla on violin, Nicola Di Camillo (double bass), Vince Abbracciante (accordion) and Francesco Savoretti (percussion). They will be here for one set only, on Friday June 29.
