A little about…
Jazz pianist Antonello Marafioti
Born in Rome, Italy in 1962, Antonello Marafioti, Jazz pianist and composer, began playing piano at 7 years of age. By the time he had turned 20 he had been exposed to Jazz through recordings of Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. This encounter permanently altered the course of Mr. Marafioti’s musical focus and direction.
„Jazz, like any true artform, transcends all ethnic, geographic and religious borders.
Jazz considers the individual solely on the basis of his musical capacity and his interaction in a group and should therefore be free of every form of competition.
Jazz is not a well defined, strictly regimented style of music, ordered by absolute laws. Jazz is a path to understand Music based on interpretation and improvisation, open to any kind of challenge.
It is my desire to create a fertile ground in which to plant the talents of diverse personalities from different musical and cultural backgrounds and together grow towards into higher musical and spiritual understanding.„
Antonello Marafioti lives in Berlin since 1994.
