We are happy to announce a new addition to our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents the Brixia Trio.
The Brixia Trio named after the wonderful town of Brescia in northern Italy, is a jazz ensemble based in Dublin, composed of Anna Bignami (Brescia, IT), Otso Kasperi Mielonen (FIN) and Enrico Goffi (Brescia, IT). The Trio doesn’t have a leader, it represents a communal effort and musical commitment. Each of the members present their own compositions to be then workshopped by the other musicians to create ONE sound without annihilating the individual’s intent. They have performed in various venues such as The Music Temple (Brescia, IT)
