ABOUT THIS EVENT
IDR’s new album Pandemonium focuses on the crossover between Italian folkloric/early music sources fused with jazz, improvisation & rock!
IDR presents its new album Pandemonium, focused on the crossover between Italian folkloric/early music sources fused with jazz, improvisation and rock, all blended in a Downtown New York sound.
The goal is to excavate the cultural memory of generations of Italian immigrants and explore the musical space where traditions blur and cross-contaminate, memories fade and distort, and new post-immigration sounds are born.
IDR is vocalist Francesco Pellegrino, guitarist composer Marco Cappelli, bassist and clarinetist Doug Wieselman, trombonist Roberto Schiano, contrabassist Ken Filiano, and drummer Jim Pugliese.
The band was founded by Italian-born guitarist Marco Cappelli and American-born percussionist Jim Pugliese, and made its debut at NYC’s Issue Project Room back in 2004. After touring Europe several times, in 2008 IDR released its first critically-acclaimed debut album, featuring special guests Marc Ribot and DJ Logic. Their last tour took place right before the pandemic, and Pandemonium is their return on stage, with a clear political statement against populism and in favor of immigration as a resource to be welcomed in our rich western societies.
