Anais Drago: violino, live electronics;
Violinist and composer, Anais Drago began studying from an early age, mastering and immersing herself in the classical genre. She sees music as an instrument of personal expression and as a language which transcends time and countries. This has led her to deepen and combine different musical genres, while maintaining its classical and jazz origins.
“Solitudo” was born from the synthesis of two different researches conducted by herself in the solo dimension: the “electronic” one of the project “Da Erik Satie a Frank Zappa”, in which attention to the arrangement and minimal construction of compositions prevails, mainly unpublished, where the solo violin can make up for the lack of other instruments by modifying the sounds. And the “acoustic” one experienced in the “Exodus” project, which is based on the timbre research of the instrument in its acoustic form and freer improvisation.
The originality of the project has brought Drago among the winners of “New Jazz Generation”, an initiative of I-Jazz, the National Association which brings some of the most followed and well-know Italian festivals, created to promote young musicians nationally and internationally.
