Marcella Carboni - Jazz Harp Concert - FREE EVENT

FREE ticket registration:


Italian harpist and composer, Marcella Carboni is considered one of the most active jazz harpists in Europe. Her performances are often defined as a balance between jazz and European music, played with impeccable technique and enchanting sound, and despite a strong dedication to Afro-American music she kept exploring all contemporary styles.

The encounter with NY harpist Park Stickney revealed the potentiality of the jazz harp to her and inspired her to develop an original style. Since then Marcella Carboni has been participating, with her electro-acoustic harp, in seminars, workshops, jazz and postgraduate studies in Italy and abroad.

Despite the unusualness of her blue harp in the jazz environment at that stage, thanks to her musical abilities she was able to collaborate with important and well known musicians like Enrico Pieranunzi, Bruno Tommaso, Paolo Fresu, Riccardo Zegna, Roberto Cipelli, which led to the recording of her first solo CD “Trame”.

She took part in movie and theatre projects and easily manages to suit her instrument to soul, pop or electronic music. To this day she still is the only harpist who has appeared in the Italian Top Jazz musicians ranking as “best musician of the year” and “best new talent”.

Her collaborations in the jazz field have been frequent and prestigious, having played together with the likes of Rosario Giuliani, Bruno Tommaso, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Paolo Fresu, Anthony Braxton, Edmar Castaneda, Javier Girotto, Daniela Spielmann, Enrico Fink, Ricardo Zegna, Paolo Damiani, Fabrizio Sferra, Yuri Goloubev, Gianni Coscia, Peter Waters, Joanna Rimmer, Elisabetta Antonini, Max De Aloe, Riccardo Fassi, Gabriele Coen, Francesco D'Auria, Francesca Corrias, Susanna Stivali, Aldo Bassi, Giacomo Uncini, Mario Corvini, Roberto Olzer, Simone Alessandrini.

She has performed in important music festivals, seasons and live-halls: Madrid Jazz Festival, Jazz at Kitano (New York), Barbès (New York), Settimana Cultura Italiana (Rio de Janeiro, Brasile),Torino Jazz Festival, Dialogo (Roma, Auditorium Parco della Musica), Roma Jazz’s cool (Casa del Jazz), Time in Jazz-Berchidda (OT), Nuoro Jazz, Musica sulle Bocche-Santa Teresa di Gallura (OT), European Jazz Expo (Cagliari), Tuscia Jazz, Artusi Jazz Fstival (FC), Woma Jazz (Modena), Iseo Jazz, Vivere Jazz a Fiesole, Viggiano Jazz (PZ), No borders Jazz (Gubbio), Latina Jazz Winter, NonSoleJazz Festival, Legnano Jazz, Jesi Jazz, Ivrea Jazz, Terre di Siena, Elba Jazz.

Besides her intense musical activity she is also engaged in teaching jazz harp in Italian harp music schools, the Conservatories of Matera, Benevento, Pesaro, Torino, Parma, Brescia, and in several Harp Festivals like Salsomaggiore (Italy), Ligerz (Switzerland) and Perpignan (France).
