Event Details

Italian singer Maria Pia De Vito is one of the leading improvising vocalists in Europe. She studied operatic and contemporary singing, piano, percussion and ethnic polyphony before turning to jazz. Testament to her incredible versatility - from scat singing to human beatboxing – De Vito’s performances featured artists such as Joe Zawinul, Michael Brecker, John Taylor, Rita Marcotulli, Paolo Fresu, Norma Winstone, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Dave Liebman and Rama Mani. 

 

For this concert, part of our Women Who Jazz series, Maria Pia De Vito will perform in duo with Julian Oliver Mazzariello, an extraordinary pianist, renowned for his sensitivity and irresistible touch.

 

Central to this musical encounter is the southern Italian city of Naples, whose popular songs have been celebrated by the virtuosic but earthy De Vito on many recordings. Their joyously spontaneous interaction has a drive to walk new music paths, in which the Neapolitan dialect meets original compositions as well as classics by Brazilian authors such as Chico Buarque and Guinga, in an always surprising combination of piano textures and inventions.  

 

 

This concert will be broadcast on WPFW
