Kekko Fornarelli Trio plays in Belgrade

“As long as there are musicians as open minded as Kekko Fornarelli, jazz will carry on being the World’s music. Kekko’s intimacy is made of rich melodies and chord progressions which evoke some delicate forms of modern jazz, but are translated by that particular touch which makes him one of the most interesting young pianist of the moment” (Paolo Fresu).


More eclectic than ever, three years after his last album, Kekko Fornarelli changes his skin, breaks the mould, and clears the way for a more and more universal vision of the music. This renewed way of conceiving his music is the project “KUBE”, which is an attempt to create music to observe, more than just to listen to. The album “ROOM OF MIRRORS” is the centerpiece of this research, its objectification.

Various are the reference models of Fornarelli’s music, which join together giving birth to an original colorful harmony made of electronic components and  acoustic instruments, modern northern European ideas and neoclassical lyricism, filtered by the unique pen of this southern Italian talent.

His piano trio is a dive into a vortex of changing feelings, from the darkest to the clearest, from luxury to simplicity. A new voice in the Italian jazz scene.

Fornarelli proposes its own particular style, mixing the lesson of EsbjörnSvenssons with his Mediterranean character.

Kekko Fornarelli triio performs in Belgrade on Feb 26th at 21.00 at Studio 6 of Radio Belgrade. The concert will be broadcasted live on Radio Belgrade 3 and on TV channel RTS Digital
