Last Show: Tuesday 13 th November 2018

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Soho’s jazz audience can experience the artistry of the Sardinian duo of Marcello Peghin on 10-string guitar and Salvatore Maltana on double bass, creating an intimate atmosphere with originals which fuse traditional tunes, Afro-American rhythms and Brazilian melodies. London-based Italian vocalist Marta Capponi joins the duo from Alghero as special guest to present original tunes created for this occasion, before the award-winning vocal wizard Cleveland Watkiss takes to the stage. Blending improvisation, counterpoint harmony, electronics, break-beat loops and bass lines, the award-winning vocalist creates a unique orchestral soundscape in Vocal Suite, drawing on the mood and ambience of the jazz club and its audience.

"Watkiss can create any of these sounds in live performance... he can be a one man band.”

Sardinian Extravaganza - Theatralia Jazz Festival 2018

London meets Alghero - Alghero incontra Londra

In 2018 Theatralia Jazz Festival is dedicated to the encounter between London and Alghero, the gorgeous Catalan town in Sardinia, an island in the island. A unique crossroads of cultures that, in addition to the beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea, preserves an ancient history, protected by the imposing walls that embrace the city.

This project is also a bridge between the Theatralia Jazz Festival in London and Jazz Alguer, a monthly jazz festival directed by jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu, that offers the opportunity to enjoy the music of international jazz stars in amazing locations in Alghero throughout the year.
