EFG London Jazz Festival - The Grammy Award-winning singer, banjo and fiddle player and the Italian multi-instrumentalist.

 

Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi on Friday 22nd November 2019

Music that flows across continents: there is no Other is a collaborative album from the Grammy Award-winning singer, banjo and fiddle player and the Italian multi-instrumentalist.

With a voice that can’t be ignored, Rhiannon Giddens sings out the soul of America through gospel, jazz, blues and country with a devastating emotional range.

When Giddens met pianist, percussionist and ‘musical alchemist’ (Irish Times) Francesco Turrisi, they found that her reclaimed 19th century American minstrel banjo tunes and his traditional Sicilian tambourine rhythms fit naturally together.

They soon discovered why – their respective roots coexisted in the past. Pictures of early minstrel bands all represent banjo and tambourine together.

there is no Other, is at once a condemnation of ‘othering’ and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.
