With their unique sound, which combines jazz, opera and world music, the members of the trio take you on a musical tour of the "Mare Nostrum" of their origins. If you close your eyes, you will feel immersed in a film by Fellini, with, as your only luggage, emotion, humility, musicality and generosity. The three Barolo musicians are always ready for new encounters, new collaborations, new dreams. After five years, more then eighty concerts in France with more and more enthusiastic audiences, a first CD, "Le Ballet des Airs", recorded at Roberto Lioli's, Enrico Rava's sound engineer, the Barolo trio's second album, "Casa Nostra", recorded at the La Buissonne studio in January 2017 is about to come out.

CASA NOSTRA,is, for us, the sacred, universal, deeply human place, shared with the audience: the stage.
CASA NOSTRA,is also music, the inspiration, the breath which nourish our lyric jazz.
CASA NOSTRA,is, lastly our mediterranean origins, our migrations from harbour to harbour, stages to stages.
