PANO – A concert, “Dialektos”, will take place in Hanoi on December 9 th and in Ho Chi Minh City on December 11 th by the Embassy of Italy in Vietnam, with the sponsorship of DDP.
The event, in the framework of Vietnam-Italy program, is organised on the occasion of the 150 th anniversary of the unification of Italy with the aiming of giving Vietnamese audience an insight on Italian jazz culture.
The concert will see the present of the famous Duo Maria Pia De Vito and Huw Warren from Italy. Maria Pia De Vito, Italian jazz and classical singer, composer and arranger, is one of the most original figures on the Italian jazz scene. She has worked with visual artists, choreographers, and musicians such as John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, Miroslav Vitous, Joshua Redman, and Italian Enrico Rava and Paolo Fresu. In 2008 and 2009 she has won the Critics Top Jazz Award as best singer, and in 2009 she has also won the critics award for her record ‘Mind in Gap’, as best international production. In 2010, the magazine ‘Jazz It’ elected her as best Italian singer.
Pianist and composer Huw Warren never ceases to amaze audience as an intriguing and thrilling musician and composer. The winner of this year’s highly coveted BBC Jazz Award for innovation, Huw has established an international presence in recent years, as a musical director/pianist for contemporary folk diva June Tabor for well over a decade, and for his current work with ex-Austrian Musician of the Year bassist Peter Herbert and NY violin virtuoso improviser Mark Feldman.
Dialektos is a fruitful collaboration between the two musicians, as it reflects their mutual love for folk roots, energetic rhythms and strong melodies. Its cultural fulcrum is the southern Italian city of Naples, with popular song the virtuosic but earthy De Vito that has been celebrated on previous recordings.
