Time & Location
About the Event
Daniel Weltlinger (violin) and Filippo Dall'Asta (guitar) join their unique musical backgrounds on stage to discover a fresh and energetic take on Gypsy Jazz, Klezmer and Mediterranean melodies...all in a vibrant, powerful yet mesmerising listening experience.
Born in Sydney, Australia in 1977 and of French-Austro-Hungarian-Israeli family background, the critically acclaimed Berlin-based violinist and composer-producer Daniel Weltlinger has long been renowned worldwide for his distinctive warm sound and innovations within the genres of Gypsy-swing, jazz, Yiddish-klezmer and experimental/free-improvised music.
He is frequently in demand in a recording or performance capacity, often in collaboration with an array of top musicians and ensembles in a variety of different formats, and is highly sought after for his technical and musical mastery on his main instrument.
Filippo Dall’Asta is an Italian Gypsy jazz guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger, mixing the sounds of Gypsy jazz with bebop and classical music, to forge his own style of progressive guitar playing. Filippo began playing at the age of 5 in Parma, Italy, and studied music in his native country as well as Germany, France, Holland and India.
In 2010, at the age of 23, he arrived in the UK where he toured and recorded with hundreds of artists such as Mozes Rosenberg, Lollo Meier, Giacomo Smith, John Wheatcroft, Duved Dunajevsky, Rares Morarescu, Gypsy Dynamite, Harp Bazaar, Tara Minton (Björk), Mehboob Nadeem, The Onironauts and many more. His touring resume covers Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain, England, Malta and Russia, with notable appearances at The Royal Albert Hall, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, the Union Chapel, and many festivals in France and Italy.
Filippo released his first solo album in December 2018: “Mediterasian”, innovative album featuring over 20 musicians in which the erratic energy of Gypsy jazz combine with the meditative sonorities of Indian music. The album was praised as "one of the best instrumental albums of 2018" by LA Music Critic Awards.
