Lisipi Lisipi

Three musicians with different backgrounds met in a home studio and realized it was the moment that they had been waiting for all their lives: Liliya Akhmetzyanova on piano; Silvio Canargiu on bass; Pierpaolo Frailis on drums.

Liliya is a classically trained pianist. She graduated from Russian conservatory. Always hated jazz and thought that all jazz players are pretentious nerds. Ironically, she met Silvio Canargiu, who is a jazz musician, fell in love with him and, automatically, with jazz.

Silvio Canargiu started his professional career in 1992 with sardinian pop bands as guitarist and later singer/guitarist. Went to Sanremo for a pop festival with Nicola Marogna then he played for a long time with Stefano Puddu in France recording a couple of albums such as Zamballarana with Jerome Casalonga's 15 elements ensemble. Mr. Elvis Costello judged this album as “ONE OF THE 500 BEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIMES”

During that period Canargiu played different styles such as blues at the Rocce Rosse and Blues Festival (as opening act for B.B.King and John Mayall) with his acoustic trio Walking blues or jazz with Federico Vassallo, Vittorio Sicbaldi, Sandro Fontoni and many others, funk and rock with Silvano Lobina, Davide Sanna, Michela Calabrese and most of the best sardinian musicians available at that time.

In 1996 started playing Bass with a MPB band in Cagliari.

In 1998 he released his first album with his name on called D'improvviso.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
