A trio that mixes and interprets ideas, cultures, sounds and rhythms of their places of origin: Italy, Brazil and Argentina. An eminently acoustic sound where the accordeon, guitar and acoustic bass return with the strength and personality of the individual performers the vibrations of popular culture with the most elegant air of jazz. The recently established trio is made up of artists who in various capacities have trod the main stages in the most prestigious festivals around the world, suffice it to mention collaborations with Al di Meola, Mercedes Sosa, Juan Carlos Caceres, Jairo, Paolo Fresu, Enrico Rava, Franco Ambrosetti, Randy Brecker, Rita Marcotulli, Jaques Morelembaum. An ensemble full of artistic ideas and different musical colors, which does not fail to amaze also for the intense interplay, the indispensable feeling inside the trio, and for the energy that it manages to convey to the public with each note. Italy, Argentina, Brazil, three musical traditions strongly identifying and at the same time deeply interconnected, for centuries.
"One of the greatest lessons I learned from staying in South America is that singular and plural are not antithetical terms, rather they seem to be like oxygen and hydrogen to water. Tres Mundos testifies to the meeting of three wonderful artists who measure themselves with depth and simplicity, with the desire to put his plural being back at the center of music, his natural propensity to 'get together', to make us 'feel together', worlds and ways that mix with each other, coming to constitute a single music, made up of many music that merge and merge, losing their original meaning, indissolubly binding together, simply creating Humanity. Carlos, Fausto and Roberto provide us with perhaps unscientific proof, but certainly poetic - and therefore valid for me in all respects! - that identities are created not by subtraction, but by addition." (Gabriele Mirabassi).
