Music : TooSeriouslyCommittedPeople feat. Maddalena Ghezzi. Friday 10th May 19:30

TooSeriouslyCommittedPeople is a duo from composers and improvisers Stefano Grasso and Alessio Dal Checco.

Both rooted in jazz and active in many different musical situations (from ska to hip hop to afrobeat to radical improvisation), they gather in a shared approach to total music, expressing their love, suffering, gratitude to life. Clashing explosive sounds melting in wavy drones, organic rhythms, whispers from mountains to above.
Their first album, Truth Seeker, is out for the experimental italian label Mupe Records (MUPE 004, Oct 22nd 2023).

Doors 7.30 | music 8pm | £10

Maddalena Ghezzi is a London based singer, composer and improviser. Her voice was described as ‘ethereal’ and her approach as ‘giving the sensation of something ancient but also otherworldly’ by JazzWise Magazine. Ghezzi has released four EPs as part of her series Minerals that feature on BBC Radio, Jazz In Europe and Bonafide Magazine. Maddalena collaborates with Maria Chiara Argirò, Anything Pointless, Ruth Goller and has performed at Moment’s Notice alongside Matana Roberts.
