Due Laghi jazz festival – 31° edition

The Due laghi jazz festival, an event with the patronage and contribution of the Municipality of Avigliana, reaches the milestone of the 31st edition inaugurating the new decade of challenges faithful to its successful formula, with the presentation of rising stars, young talents and consolidated careers of the international jazz panorama.

This year’s edition, entitled Pianissimo!, will be mainly dedicated to the piano in Italian and international jazz. The focus on the piano will open on July 17th in Condove, with the presentation of a new jazz star, Francesca Tandoi. In Avigliana the main stage of the festival will host, from 18 to 20 July, a group of great pianists and friends, including Luigi Bonafede, Antonio Faraò, and the Canadian Yves Leveillé. The night-time jam sessions will be opened by as many Italian piano stars as Fabio Gorlier, Roberto Tarenzi and Sergio Di Gennaro.
As an absolute novelty of the postponement of this edition, on July 26th in Almese, the festival will move for the first time to the UNESCO site of the Roman Villa, with the quartet of the New York saxophonist Harry Allen, considered by international critics to be the “Frank Sinatra of sax”.

On July 27th we will have another novelty: the churchyard of the church of Sant’Ambrogio in Turin, the municipality of the Valsusino jazz district which takes over from Rubiana, will host from Philadelphia the American quartet of one of the greatest vocalists on the international jazz scene, Denise King.
At the end of the event – in collaboration with the Turin jazz festival Piemonte, the Piemonte jazz consortium and the Piemonte live foundation -, the Magnetto Theater in Almese will present the show “Storyboard”, by Gwen Cahue and Baptiste Bailly.
