Filippo Dall’Asta’s
Mediterasian ALBUM LAUNCH

Gypsy Jazz meets Indian music!


Filippo was 16 years old. His father gave him a Django Reinhardt record as a gift, and the very first time he listened to it, he was hooked for life. There was something about Gypsy jazz music that spoke to him, and he knew that this was his calling in life.

Since then, he has trained with Gypsy guitar masters in France and Holland, soaking up every lesson that he could. Their history rife with pain, repression, and persecution, the Gypsies play music that is reflective of both sadness and joy – that joy coming from the strength that they feel to keep moving forward. In that way, Filippo believes that this music captures life in all its beauty, the happy and the sad together as they are.

During a six-month backpacking excursion in India, Filippo fell in love with classical Indian music. Its sounds resonated with him deeply, waking up something ancient inside him, telling him things that he had always known but perhaps forgotten. Traditionally connected to meditation, Indian music has been proven to have a restorative and calming effective on the mind and body.

"Mediterasian" is Filippo Dall’Asta’s attempt at fusing Gypsy jazz and Indian music, in order to impact people’s bodies and souls positively. He wants people to start healing through Indian music and to live their life with the passion of Gypsy music - to heal their wounds and then move forward with joy.

Join us for this very special concert, where you will also be able to purchase the newly released album!

"Filippo has the magic balance of talent and drive and both serve each other perfectly. He positively glows in his numerous musical endeavours, is boundlessly enthusiastic and he has the skills to back all of this up. Further, he is a pleasure to play with and I expect big things from him."
John Wheatcroft
