Anaïs Drago “Solitudo”
The winner of the “new talents” category of the 2021 Top Jazz Awards, Anaïs Drago is a violinist, composer, and improviser. Her eclecticism, which is also the result of a “classical” music education that culminated with a diploma at the Conservatory and then focused on jazz, allows her to move with ease among jazz, rock, world music, and experimentation. Recently, she became interested in the solo performance, both with the electric and the acoustic violin. Her album, “Solitudo”, surprises for its harmonic and timbre richness: with her, the violin, in complete solitude, fills the room.
People should keep an eye on this unconventional artist: one of the new names on the jazz scene, despite the term being simplistic in her case.
Besides her concert at the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria, Anaïs Drago is the guest of Accordi Disaccordi (as was at Umbria Jazz 19 and the recent winter edition in Orvieto).
