Umbria Jazz Spring

April 1, 2019 By News Comments Off

Umbria Jazz Spring is done in four: #GOSPEL, #SOUL, #BLUES & #JAZZ. All these musical genres are closely intertwined, in substance even before in the formal aspects, and are sometimes difficult to distinguish. Together, they define the contours of the best #blackmusic born in American territory.
All this is inspired by the spring musical festival of #Terni, which includes #events concentrated in the # heart of the city and without interruption. During the period of the #fasquali festival Terni hosts the most substantial and articulated Black Music program on a national level. The choice of spaces was made in coherence with the musical genres: in clubs, therefore, jazz, to recover its historically more typical atmosphere; in the Sanctuary of #SanFrancesco, a place of prayer and meeting place for the community of believers, the gospel; in the @caos_centroarti, space of art, cultural production and aggregation, the blues, the soul and the more transversal strands.

Papigno, a small village of stone and rocks, then as now unknown to most, is revealed in its singular position, in its picturesque appearance and its archaic charm.
It represents an ideal of primitive beauty and technique for the artists who dedicate to him the extraordinary number of drawings and paintings, making this Umbrian town one of the most represented in the history of landscapes.
Like the village, the painters, especially plenarists, love the surroundings, in particular the secular woods that surround it and the panoramic views towards the Terni valley
