Toronto Jazz Festival: O-Janà and Rosa Brunello



Toronto Jazz Festival: O-Janà and Rosa Brunello

June 24 | 7 pm | Venue: Church of The Redeemer | Free Admission

O-Janà | Rosa Brunello

O-Janà is a duo that brings together singer Ludovica Manzo and electronic musician/pianist Alessandra Bossa, two composers and improvisers with different backgrounds. The combination of these two artists, each charged with spontaneity, curiosity and audacity, is exciting and the result of it is a music which moves from electronics to songwriting to free-improvisation.

The main characteristic of the duo is to expand boundaries in exploring and experimenting in the field of song composition and free improvisation, working on their own original material. Compositions are characterized by smooth and liquid soundscapes with melodies lying on a mix of prepared piano and electronic sounds while their lyrics are, by turns, funny or poignant or thought-provoking.

Although they are always looking for the clear structure and the “song” form, O-Janà’s concerts have a strong free improvisational component where sounds can sometimes evolve into distorted beats and jagged lines.

O-Janà has performed in several festivals and venues in Italy and abroad. Their first self-titled Ep was recorded at The Academy of Music and Drama of Göteborg, Sweden and released in May 2012. An extract from this album was also used as the soundtrack for the shortfilm Tram Mob, by Maude (2012) and for videos “Il mondo in un minuto” of Repubblica Tv.

Since 2013 O-Janà have collaborated with percussionist/drummer Michele Rabbia and in 2018 they release the album “Inland Images” (Folderol Records) in which also appears the norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset.
