Influenced by a fusion of jazz, 80's boogie, world music, italo house, balearic beats and funk, the debut album from the italian quintet Aura Safari is a sublime mix of various individual tastes, backgrounds and different musical eras. Their eponymous LP is full of diversity and unpredictability. An example of their genuine love of music spanning across a variety of genres.
Swift percussion, sexy trumpets, funky piano chords and flowing melodies are only the tip of the iceberg of the creative complexity of the album, which is masterfully mixed. The sound is, in fact, divine. Released by Church, one of the best contemporary labels, the sonic signature of the Aura Safari LP is shaped by years spent in the local scene of Perugia (Italy), attending the Umbria Jazz Festival every summer, and winter nights at the legendary Red Zone Club. Available in digital formats, the vinyl edition can be pre-ordered through the best online stores.
Aura Safari are: Alessandro Deledda, Andrea Moretti, Lorenzo Lavoratori, Daniele Melloni and Nicholas Iammatteo.
