Ilaria Graziano & Francesco Forni

// Italy //

New Album – TWINKLE TWINKLE – digital Exit(Release) worlwide 27 in April – physical Exit(Release) France in September 29th, 2018

guitar in the male and an ukulele in the feminine. Ilaria Graziano and Francesco Forni propose a show between folk song, blues which feels well the dolce vita!
This great duet sings as well in English, in French, in Spanish and of course in their mother tongue Italian.
Their show is a journey fascinating, traveling the lands of Mexico and Texas, mixing with fluidity the blues, the folk song with accents of Argentine tango and the tunes of neapolitan songs.
