His passion for jazz and ethnic music lead to his founding of the Florence Jazz Society in 1966, Florence-based group Whisky Trail in 1975, and La Radice Center in 1981. In recent years he has been concentrating on composing and performing his own music, and bringing together musicians and musical styles from many different cultures, both in his recordings and in live performances.

He has played in concert with Andy Irvine and Dollar Brand at the International Jazz Festival of Kalish in Poland, with Jacques Higelin and Manu Dibango in his "Al Kamar" show in Paris, with Benito Lertxundi in Madrid and Oiartzun, and with the African singer Ismael Lo in Milan with whom he received the joint award for "Dialogue with the far Shore of the Mediterranean", from Milan City Council.

Other concert highlights to date have been the Mercat de las Flors in Barcelona, the Arriaga Opera Theater in Bilbao and Victoria Eugenia Theatre in San Sebastian, the Teatro Romano in Verona, Cirque d'Hiver in Paris, the National Gallery in Dublin, Queens Arts Festival in Belfast, Volkshaus Zurich and Ljubljana Stadttheater.

Nairobi is the first port of call, and from there she'll travel overland to Capetown. It is then on to India, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa and the USA. You're invited to read about the journey and people she meets along the way. Enjoy the ride!
