Alice Ricciardi, voice, and Pietro Lussu, piano, are two artists bound by a strong harmony, which led to an intense collaboration.

They recorded their music for prestigious labels and performed at the leading international festivals and the most famous clubs and theaters worldwide. Over their individual careers, Alice and Pietro collaborated with important Italian and American artists.

In their first album with the fascinating duo formula (“Catch a Falling Star” released for their newborn label, Gibigiana Records) and in their live performances, Ricciardi and Lussu draw from a very diverse repertoire. It goes from American standards to pop music of the 50s and the 60s (Perry Como, The Beach Boys), from fine jazz to original compositions. In such an eclectic musical program, the common thread is the sound and their approach to the duo formula: Alice shares her knowledge of the jazz vocalism, the inclination for the melody, the interpretation of the lyrics and the music of the classics; Pietro is a counterpart, a sensitive and inspiring partner who combines creativity with elegance, irony, tradition, and unexpected twists. The duo embraces music with curiosity, bravery, and spontaneity.
