Not only engines and car horns follow you throughout the cold days of November, but in the city we start also to feel guitars, saxophones and voices. Milan warms up the atmosphere and the city comes alive with concerts and music festivals. From jazz to rock, through the folk and the Afro funk, we are happy to suggest you some events which will unleash your music desire!
From Friday 4th to Tuesday 15th of November the festival JAZZMI is back on stage with 80 concerts and a rich line-up of national and international artists, among the most successful in the contemporary jazz scene.
This modern and dynamic festival will see the alternation of musicians on the stages of historic clubs like the Blue Note, the al Verme Theatre, the National Theatre, the Santeria Social Club, the Teatro Manzoni and the Circolo Magnolia.
If you are interested now, wait until you see the entire line-up on jazzmi. We’re revealing you only a few names among the more than 300 artists in the programme: Tino Tracanna & Acrobats Quintet, Ron Carter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Avi Lebovich & The Orchestra, Ilhan Ersahin, John Pizzarelli, Freddy Cole, Randy Brecker & Balaio and many others.
After collecting an enthusiastic acclaim from the public and critics, Orlando Julius returns at the BIKO’ stage, in via Ettore Ponti, on 11th of November.
The Nigerian saxophonist and singer-songwriter began his career in the ’60s by matching African sounds with American R&B and soul. Now is on the stage of BIKO with the London band Heliocentrics, the same with whom he recorded his latest album, a special concert of afro funk notes.
If you are looking for an adrenaline rush and the typical rock energy, write on your agenda the name of the American rock band Wilco, in concert at Fabrique on November 12th. The band, founded by the composer Jeff Tweedy, is coming back to Italy to present their latest album, Star Wars, released in 2015 accompanied by some of the old tracks from their eight previous albums.
To end the month of November on the warm notes of overseas, our suggestion is to spend the evening of November 29th at Santeria Social Club, where Ryley Walker will perform presenting his new album “Golden sings That have been sung” .
The American singer-songwriter, who grew up in the punk scene of Chicago, is an acoustic talent. He is leaving a well defined mark with its folk sound, born from twists of voice and guitar. The musician has already an average of 200 concerts per year after the success of his album Primrose Green, published in 2015, and the evening of the 29th of November will be a unique opportunity to listen to him and his band.
Milan, once again, gives unique emotions to those who visit and those who live it every day, with its secret beauties that let themselves be discovered little by little. With the tune of your favourite song in your head, we wish you good listening.
