Bollani, de Holanda on stage
As part of continuing Istanbul Jazz Festival concerts, two rising stars of the jazz world – Stefano Bollani and Hamilton de Holanda – are taking the stage at the Istanbul Archaeological Museum today.
From classical music and jazz to Brazilian music and pop-rock, Bollani’s music defies any limits. Bollani is also acclaimed for his collaborations with Enrico Rava, while de Holanda is known as the “Jimi Hendrix of the bandolim.”
Bollani and de Holanda will perform classical music, smooth jazz, avant-garde jazz, Brazilian jazz and pop rock. In 1998, Musica Jazz magazine voted Bollani the Best Jazz Talent of the Year.
While he is mostly known for his collaborations with Rava, he has made several albums as a leader and has been favorably acknowledged by several long-established jazz musicians, such as Martial Solal.
