The Italian Cultural Institute, the Italian Embassy and Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres are pleased to present Suono Italiano in 2019, as part of an ongoing partnership of presentation.

This unique Italian duo, consisting of internationally renowned harmonica player Gianluca Littera and pianist Fabio Gorlier, have been collaborating for many years playing original compositions as well as songs from the jazz repertoire, and engaging in a playful exploration with the harmonica across musical genres. This performance is a rare opportunity to encounter these two extraordinary Italian musicians on tour in Australia for the first time.
