Marco Lo Russo returns from Cuba, then flies to Gabon in Central Africa

Marco Lo Russo
The concept-concert ‘Made in Italy’ by Marco Lo Russo does not allow for any breaks!

Returned from two recent Caribbean tours where he presented the world premiere of the concept-concert on the occasion of the Italian Culture Week, organized by the Italian Embassy in Havana and the 21st International Festival in Ciudad Movement in Havana, Marco Lo Russo is already in preparation for performances in Libreville, Gabon, in the heart of the African continent.

The prestigious invitation, received by the Italian Embassy in Gabon in Libreville, involves ‘Made in Italy’ concerts, organised by the Embassy itself, on Thursday June 2nd at the Embassy and on Saturday June 4th at the Resort Village Akouango, on the north shore of the estuary. Lo Russo will perform his music full of pathos and feeling, accompanied by the singer Maria Francesca Bartolomucci, and also partnerships with Riccardo Cocciante in the musical ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and the role of Bloom in the ‘Winx’ musical.

Among the many recent events in the Caribbean, there was a concert at the Theatre on the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana during which Marco Lo Russo performed a world premiere of a remake of the song ‘Un día de noviembre’, a tribute to the composer, guitarist and conductor Leo Brouwer. The famous composer was in the audience, and appreciated the arrangement of his composition in a jazz style, and also the flamenco versions of some of his compositions on the CD ‘Brouwer Flamenco II’, recently published as an international production signed by guitarist and composer Josué Tacoronte, winner of Cubadisco 2013.

The discographic work, nominated for the Cubadisco 2016, is the result of the collaboration of well-known musicians from 5 countries, saw the special participation of Marco Lo Russo as accordionist and was recorded between Mexico, Cuba and Italy in Rouge Sound Production by Marco Lo Russo in Sermoneta, Latina.

There was also a collaboration, with the company Danza Teatro Retazos, directed by Isabel Bustos, in which Marco Lo Russo as musical director, sound designer and accordionist, created the spectacle of the conclusion of the ‘Week of Polish Culture’ in Havana. The contribution of Marco Lo Russo has been critical to the realization of the show thanks to the experience gained in Poland in several years of artistic activities with numerous concerts held in Poland.

Thus ended the Cuban experience for Marco Lo Russo, who has now relocated to Gabon. There will be appearances in Poland in July where Lo Russo will be present with his inseparable friend, the accordion, during the ‘Night of Jazz Fair Play’, performing in many important artistic and musical events.
