‘Ariband’
Antonio Cotardo - Flutes and Bells. Paolo Pacciolla – Daire, Jembak, Bells, Mbira and Voice.

The Italian duo of Cotardo and Pacciolla – known as ‘Free Dot’ – describe their music as “free from definitions of pre-established limits in which jazz, Indian and Persian music converge creating an original sound. Musical compositions and performances always different in shapes … from instruments of various traditions played freely according to the expressive necessities of the two musicians. The dialogue between Cotardo and Pacciolla creates situations of scenes always changing which alternate moments of lyrical and introspective character to moments extremely rhythmical.”

The critics say:
“This is a splendid, well-balanced recording of mostly flutes and hand percussion or thumb piano. At times Paolo sounds as if he is playing thin sticks or rustling leaves giving the duo a most enchanting, sublime afterglow. Antonio over-dubs another flute or two thus adding an eerie, ghostlike vibe to their sound. The persistent use of bells sounds like chimes being moved by the wind, thus also adding a dream-like quality. One of the great things about this disc and duo is that Paolo often plays his percussion in a most melodic way, the way a great tabla player also assumes more than just the rhythmic role when he or she solos. Ariband is/are one of those enchanting duos I've heard in a long while, occasionally soothing yet consistently mesmerizing” - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, USA.

“Aerial compositions, free and hypnotic, simple and touching flute melodies, sounds like a meeting between Glen Velez and Moe Koffman! HIGHLY enjoyable.” François Couture, Canada
