The saxophone player and flautist Manuel Hermia, voted "Confirmed Artist" 2017 by Sabam Jazz Awards, invited in Berlin Jazzfest 2018 has cemented his reputation as a European musician at the top of his game !
In HERMIA / DARRIFOURCQ / CECCALDI, MANUEL HERMIA collaborates with two of the most oustanding musicians of the french jazz scene : drummer SYLVAIN DARRIFOURCQ and cellist VALENTIN CECCALDI.
The trio has been a highlight of the recent Belgium Jazz Meeting and has been selected for the European show-case in JAZZAHEAD 2018.
From experimental jazz to classical, VALENTIN CECCALDI could be presented as the new revelation of cello. We can feel his strong complicity with the incredibly precise drummer SYLVAIN DARRIFOURCQ, and together they develop an unpredictable and inventive music, weaving the ideal groundwork for the overlapping sax of MANUEL HERMIA who furrows the roads of world music while carrying strongly alive the primal scream of a furiously libertarian jazz.
