Described by Guitar Techniques' John Wheatcroft as "the magic balance of talent and drive" Filippo Dall'Asta is an Italian Gypsy jazz guitarist, composer, bandleader and arranger, mixing the sounds of Gypsy jazz with traditional Indian music to forge his own style of progressive guitar playing.
He has toured and recorded with artists such as Mozes Rosenberg, Lollo Meier, Giacomo Smith, John Wheatcroft, Tara Minton (Björk) and many more. His touring resume covers Germany, India, Italy, France, Spain, England, Malta and Russia, with notable appearances at The Royal Albert Hall, the House of Parliament, the Tower of London, the Union Chapel, and many festivals in France and Italy.
Filippo released his first solo album in December 2018: Mediterasian, which was praised as "one of the best instrumental albums of 2018" by LA Music Awards.
Tonight, he will perform with his quartet. An evening not to be missed.
