Visit Livorno / Events / NUBRAS ENSEMBLE


At 10:15 PM

Free event

Nubras is an international ensemble formed in 2022 that is dedicated to building a bridge between “Western classical” music and the sonic traditions of the Balkans and the Middle East, bringing together musicians from the worlds of classical music, jazz, and folk music.

An all-female string trio with violinists Carla Mulas González and Giulia Anita Bari (Spain/Italy) and cellist Rachel Blueberger (Poland), along with multi-instrumentalist Giorgio Gadotti (Italy), percussionist Giovanni Lo Cascio (Italy), and accordionist Nino Conte (Italy), come together with Bulgarian dances, Romanian suites, and songs from the Serbian and Macedonian traditions. These are the colors that transport the audience to different dimensions, from moments of celebration to small intimate scenes of Eastern European villages.

The repertoire, rearranged by the musicians of Nubras, comes from travels and encounters made over the years in Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania. Each piece carries a story, an exchange with local musicians and professionals who have been studying this repertoire for years.

In just one year since its formation, Nubras has performed in over 50 concerts in Italy and abroad, and has been selected for a double concert at the FOLKEST 2023 Festival and the Folkest Showcase in 2024, as well as on the stage of the Segesta Theatre Festival among many others.
