Discover the new sounds of the burgeoning Italian jazz scene as I-Jazz brings together O-Janà and Hobby Horse.
They’re two acts whose music would be equally at home in a jazz club or a nightclub. O-Janà – a collaboration between vocalist Ludovica Manzo and electronic musician Alessandra Bossa – create new forms from a blend of free improv, electronics and songwriting.
Hobby Horse bring together a similarly diverse set of influences, borrowing from slam poetry, techno, bossa nova, prog, hip-hop and beyond. At times it’s a squall, at others, it’s hypnotic – and it’s always totally captivating.
