The Jaffa Cakes
We are happy to introduce the Swing part of our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents The Jaffa Cakes.
Can you imagine a cover band who arranges the most famous songs in different styles and genre, still keeping their “sing-along” peculiarity? Miss Phoenix & The Jaffa Cakes is an original band based in Dublin that twists world famous songs into different unique versions, mostly jazz, swing, blues, combining post-modern flavours creating their own signature sound.
Started as a standard Jazz duet (piano and vocals), they found this new way to perform almost as a joke, but given that the result was unexpectedly remarkable, they decided to leave the standard jazz project and create the Jaffa Cakes. All the performers are Italian.
They met by coincidence in Dublin and after a jam session decided to work together. Paolo Zuddas on the drums, Dario Rodighiero on the piano and vocals, Plinny Phoenix as lead singer.
At the Radio Dublino Festival, The Jaffa Cakes will go back to origins, performing again as duet, piano and voice.
