After three years of hiatus Upperground Orchestra – led by Rabih Beaini and featuring Piero Bittolo-Bon, Alvise Seggi, Tommaso Cappellato and new entry as an additional drummer Daniele De Santis – will be performing at legendary techno venue Berghain-Panorama Bar in Berlin, Germany as part of a label two-nights event presenting four new releases.
The Upperground Orchestra LP, titled Euganea, was recorded at the Renaissance-era Villa dei Vescovi outside Padua in 2016 during the Musica Veneta residency supported by Fondo Ambiente Italiano. It’s the four-piece electronic jazz group’s first release since 2012’s The Eupen Takes. The lineup for Euganea features Beaini on electronics and spatula, Tommaso Cappellato on drums and percussion, Alvise Seggi on bass and oud plus Piero Bittolo Bon on woodwinds and electronics. The five-track LP is out October 7th.
