The band came together in the winter of 2009 when local musicians Alessandro Rizzardi (mandolino), Keane (Percussioni), Fabio Guazelli (chitarra), Leo Gnesi (contro bass), and Andrea Gonnella (cantante) found each other in Aristo’s enoteca, with instruments in hand, and exciting ideas in mind and of course, passion in heart.
Focusing mainly on forgotten swing Italiano from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, The Aristodemos welcome you to jump back in time and into their salotto. You may also hear something contemporary swung into Aristo gear.
Standing in for the Aristodemo’s usual bass player, Leo Gnesi was the fantastic Renato Marcianò plus special guests from Loch Lomond, Scotland – Linsey Aitken & Ken Campbell, one of Scotland’s most distinctive duos, with their wide ranging influences and unusual instrumentation and pedigrees ranging from Celtic traditional music, contemporary song writing, to classical, baroque and orchestral.
“All that is best about Scots music and song, integrating myriad strands to produce memorable and well-crafted songs. Two highly accomplished and polished musicians, with many years of experience, combine flawlessly, each seamlessly complimenting the others skills with beautiful harmonies provided by the other. – their new CD can be seen and heard here
