Ilaria Graziano & Francesco Forni are from Italy, however their music is a cosmopolitan mix of folk, blues, and la dolce vita. Singing in English, French, Spanish, and their own native Italian, their performances are fascinating travelogues that take listeners across Mexico and Texas, into the American heartland of blues and folk, and beyond into Argentinean Tango and Neapolitan songs. The duo also travels through time, with references to tradition living alongside contemporary style. Through all this variety, the duo’s repertoire is tied together by the exchange between the soft and warm sound of Francesco’s guitar, and the evocative, hypnotic voice of Ilaria.
