Maria Pia De Vito: voice, electronics
Huw Warren: piano
Nelson Veras: guitar

An intriguing concert brings together singer Maria Pia De Vito and the British pianist/composer Huw Warren: two remarkable artists who have decided to blend their wide-ranging musical experience to construct a project in which the infinite shades of the voice fuse with innovative piano playing. The results are outstanding. On the first CD that emerged from the encounter, "Diálektos", the two musicians involved one of Europe's most distinguished clarinettists and boast of Italian jazz Gabriele Mirabassi. The second CD is forthcoming and will feature the Brazilian guitarist Nelson Veras. For the first time the trio will appear together live in public for festivalfilosofia 2008.
De Vito, whose hallmark is her taste for melody, rhythm and risk-taking, finds an ideal natural partner in the musical personality of Huw Warren, an unpredictable, minimalist and contagiously rhythmic composer. Winner of the BBC Jazz Award for Innovation in 2005, Warren is a versatile and creative musician who has played with the likes of Andy Sheppard, Ian Ballamy, Mark Feldman, Theo Blackmann and folk singer June Tabor.
Ranging through jazz, contemporary and experimental song, Maria Pia De Vito is one of Europe's most refined vocalists. Much admired for her versatility and extraordinary vocal gifts, she has worked with Italian and international jazz greats such as Joe Zawinul, Michael Brecker, Miroslav Vitous and Kenny Wheeler.
The duo with Huw Warren is the latest chapter in her research on the voice as defining human feature which brings the world into being. Their intense repertoire ranges from original compositions by Warren, words in Neapolitan by De Vito, to re-readings of Brasilian classics by Hermeto Pascoal, Chico Buarque. It also includes "Si fosse n'auciello" by Totò.
