There were many musicians who took turns in demos and live performances. From the tribal and Neapolitan sound of Tony Esposito to the rock baton of Luca Martelli, drummer of Piero Pelù, from the classic notes of the Delfico youth orchestra with the students of the Liceo Musicale of Teramo coordinated by Prof. Irene Tella to the unmistakable melodies of Max Tempia and Massimo Zagonari, musicians and people in charge of the sound of famous TV programs including Maurizio Costanzo Show, Buona Domenica and The Best Years.
And then the musical refinement of the duo Francesco Bissanti on the piano and Angelo La Manna on the marimba, a particular percussion musical instrument of the idiophonic type that has African origins, also widespread in countries such as Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca ; the funk jazz of the 3G Hammond trio with Glauco di Sabatino (drums), Fabrizio Ginoble (hammond) and Giovanni Baleani (guitar); the overwhelming energy of Federico Paulovich, a young drummer appreciated all over the world; the live of the percussionist singer Giovanni Imparato who currently performs with Renzo Arbore and the Italian Orchestra; the medley of the most famous pieces of Elio e le Storie Tese performed by the official guitarist of the Cesareo group; the performance of the Christian Grassart duo (collaborations with Patrick Rondat, Andrea Toffanelli) and Gianni Di Carlo (collaborations with Gianni Morandi, Ivana Spagna and Antonello Venditti); Ciro Manna’s guitar, which boasts artistic experiences with Richard Bona and Peppe Vessicchio, accompanied by Marco Galiero’s bass and Antonio Muto’s drums; closing the exciting concert by Maurizio Rolli and the Conspe Big Band of the Pescara Conservatory, with the extraordinary participation of Greg Howe, Michael Jackson’s guitarist, Enrique Iglesias and Justin Timberlake.
All this and much more was Musica in Fiera which also hosted many musical demos, conferences, a very successful Drum Circle experience, moments of music therapy and the “Dj Award 2019” event curated by Giorgio Santovito.
8000 square meters involved for the initiative, three pavilions set up, 60 exhibitors present with the most representative brands in the world of musical instruments, 40 live performances and certainly a lot of good music, the glue of an experiment that is already projected towards the second edition.
