Manziluna, in Arabic “our house”, is a project born in 2008 realized by Fabrizo Brusca and Leonardo grimaudo on guitar, the saxophonist Calogero Genco and Carmelo Graceffa on drums. Four musicians who ever since have been working on timbre and compositive research by comparing the sicilian culture with contemporary music languages. In 2009 they recorded their debut album “Manziluna” which came out two years later edited by the italian label “Fitzcarraldo Records”. In the meanwhile the project took part in several festival whose are worth mentioning, among the others , “Winter Jazz Itineraries 2009”(Sicily), “Yhan-La Sorgente Della Musica 2010(Sicily)” with the singer Sanem Kalfa as a special guest, “Trytone Festival, New Way of Jazz 2011”(Amsterdam,NL). 2012 was an inspiring year for the band, in fact the exploration of their musical origins through jazz improvisation, middle-eastern melodies, acoustic, electric sounds and complex polyrhythms was the beginning of a new approach for their music, moving towards other musical colors and adding the Cello was the singularity of “Secretum”, a triptych of compositions written by the guitarist Fabrizio Brusca. In 2013 Manziluna plus cello were involved in very important festivals such as “Palermo Jazz Vanguard”, “Ras Al Jazz” and “Arcosoli Jazz Festival. Back to the original lineup, the quartet have just recorded the new album in Groningen (NL) at the beginning of 2014 which will come out soon with the dutch label “Cantina Records” and this time with a new guest, Cinzia Catania on vocals who has joined the band for a few songs.
