Gianni's soundscapes and musical research have been strongly influenced by a two-year world- tour, masterclasses in international conservatories and academies, and above all by several collaborations with musician of different cultures and traditions. "Kala" is a musical and geographical journey exploring the nuances of saxophone sound and the boundaries of world music. A journey that connects Morocco's darbuka to Dakar's balafon, the melodies of Indian raga to the African-American jazz improvisation.
Kala, "time" in Sanskrit, collects 6 songs. The saxophone is the absolute protagonist in this mixture of world music, electronics and jazz. Denitto's album crosses the traditional African sounds in Touki Bouki, the rarefied atmosphere of Northern Europe in Tillsammans and it balances the traditional sounds and the underground scene of the new China in Air China. Special guests: Zion Train, Masia One, Roots by Nature, Supriyo Dutta, Cheikh Fall, Djiby Diabate.
