Filippo Gambetta – Carmelo Russo
A new collaboration between the Genoese accordion player Filippo Gambetta and classical guitarist Carmelo Russo.

Carmelo Russo has worked with Jesús Lantermo, Max Manfredi, I Suonatori delle Quattro Province and “Passione Mediterranea” a large ensemble involved in the proposal of his own music.
Filippo Gambetta has proposed his music worldwide both in solo, duo and trio; he is also a member of Liguriani, Voyage de Nuit and ChocoChoro, he plays the Brazilian mandolin.
