Formed in 1974 in Turin, Italy – Still active as of 2017
Outstanding fusion band from Italy. All the power delivered by the insane drumming of Furio CHIRICO is counterpointted by the beautiful violin passages, as well as the killer guitar work. On their early albums, ARTI e MESTIERI made a dynamic, complex and elaborately crafted rock, folk, and fusion blend, that featured much violin and keyboards.
ARTI & MESTIERI, considered one of the most influent cult bands in the italian and european prog scene will astonish the audience confirming, 25 years after its release, that “TILT” is still a milestone for two generations of fans. Both albums that came out on CD, “Tilt” and “Giro Di Valzer Per Domani”, are real masterpieces of the genre. A real must for all fusion lovers!
