SOLO LIVE PERFORMANCE
TOMMASO CAPPELLATO SOLO PERFORMANCE
Italian hybrid drummer, producer, and Dj Tommaso Cappellato is a musical maverick, from free‐form electronics to hip‐hop beats and jazz improvisation. His seemingly unorthodox breadth of style and vision gives us a truly unique new school artist – from building his jazz chops as a resident drummer in NYC, to hip hop excursions alongside Brooklyn MC’s, traveling to Senegal to meld with local world music masters, to collaborating with experimental electronica and techno artist Rabih Beaini, and visionary Egyptian producer Maurice Louca.
Tommaso leads his own award‐winning spiritual jazz project Astral Travel, presents his Hybrid Drumming Workshop around the world, has released his solo artist project “Aforemention” which he also now DJ’s, and his latest acclaimed release “Butterflying”, bringing together his lifetime of artistic exploration and exposure to create his own concept of a jazz informed experimental electronic soundscape.
Tommaso was recently seen as an artist in residence at NYC’s Pioneer Works besides appearing on Maurice Louca’s album Elephantine and has recorded and co-produced a new album with Mark de Clive-Lowe. He appears frequently on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.
