The debut album of Gli Archimedi, Forvojaĝi, is not a simple anthology, but rather a sort of manifesto in which the three musicians declare their identity and their intention to make music through new languages. They start from three main strands related to jazz, classical-ancient and folk music. In Forvojaĝi (from Esperanto “leaving for a journey”), songs that have made the tradition of these three currents follow one another and gradually outline the musical image of the trio. The three arches allow themselves freedom of experimentation, juxtapose different styles, revealing an intense work of adaptation and reinterpretation. The public can expect the “unexpected”: the cello becomes a Greek bouzouki, an Armenian duduk or a manouche guitar, while the violin transforms into a North American banjo, a klezmer clarinet or a 1950s electric guitar, and finally the double bass in a “dance hall” violin, in an Irish Bodhran to finish with a strange South American percussion. But the discussion does not end there, because the trio can change shape into a real jazz trio!
