This year Musica sulle Bocche Festival gathers again the great master of percussion and the three Sardinian musicians. What brings together these three artists is the restless pursuit within a common language, the language of jazz and improvised music, without setting any boundaries among genres. The project includes multiple cultural references, an authentic musical journey through countries like India, Sardinia and the Mediterranean, Africa and Brazil, beside others matrices.

Enzo Favata, Marcello Peghin e Salvatore Maiore collaborated together at the beginning of their career and in the last year they met again to develop their trio project that grows in a free and balanced progression of original music, at the boundary between jazz, world and electronics.
