A concert that crosses newly composed music, traditional Italian tunes (especially from the Ligurian Apennines) and European themes (the trait d’union is the “bal folk” repertoire), with particular attention paid to the repertoires of Central France and the British Isles. These are the ingredients of Filippo Gambetta’s solo concert, traveling among multiple musical suggestions to discover the ancestor of the modern accordion, the diatonic button accordion. The Genoese musician Filippo Gambetta has proposed his music in the main folk festivals of the world such as the Edmonton Folk Festival, Kaustinen Folk Festival, Festival d’été de Quebec, Vancouver Folk Music Festival. An established accordionist, he has collaborated with important musicians including Nuala Kennedy, Jean Michel Veillon, Max Manfredi, Riccardo Tesi, Jaron Freeman Fox, Oliver Schroer. He is a member of the trio Maestrale, of the Duo Choropo and of the trio ChocoChoro. In duo with the Canadian pianist Emilyn Stam he has given concerts in Canada and in Europe. His album Otto Baffi won the twelfth edition of the Premio Nazionale Città di Loano as the best traditional Italian music album. He played in the Liguriani group.
