Elias Stemeseder “Serpenti a Sonagli”

Eldar Tsalikov – saxophones
Elias Stemeseder – piano
Igor Spallati – double bass
Ugo Alunni – drums

Serpenti a Sonagli is a collective ensemble featuring four protagonists of Berlin’s creative music community. Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of musical idioms, their music synthesizes these heterogenous influences to create a sound between groundedness and fluctuation. Aware of the reciprocity of tradition and innovation, the quartet navigates polyrhythmic structures, songforms, timbral explorations, folkloric elements, and – of course – the blues, with the elegance and viciousness of a serpente a sonagli. The first reunion of this group after almost three years will feature some new compositions and newly revisited older ones (some of which can be seen/heard here:
