BIOGRAPHY

Maurizio Presidente! is a six piece band based in Berlin, Germany. Coming from France, Italy and Portugal, they play original music and have been performing across Europe for the last four years.

Their multicultural background shapes their sound into a mixture of chanson francaise, swing, balkan and afro-latin rhythms. The result is an exciting and sparkly music that is hard not to dance to. A tight and groovy rhythm section (drums, bass, accordion and ukulele) keeps your feet moving while the trumpet and saxophone, jumping from powerful themes to inspired improvisations, take the audience to an unpredictable journey through many musical traditions. Warm and colourful vocal lines and harmonies, sung both in French and Italian, approach the themes of love, fate and identity in a philosophical, yet playful way.

Three years after producing the EP Majella, the band is going to release their first album Neuland on March 2017, and they are currently planning a promotional tour for it. Thanks to their supportive and loyal fan base, collected by years of touring and performing around Europe, this album was financed by a crowdfunding campaign which reached 113% of the monetary goal.

“If the heathing doesn’t work at home, a great fix to survive the cold winter in Berlin is a concert of Maurizio Presidente!”

Berlino Cacio e Pepe Magazine

“The poetry of the lyrics, the warm rhythms and the acrobatic improvisation make any of their concert a one-of-a-kind experience, a panacea for the health that lossens the articulations and releases creativity.”

“Different backgrounds, different nationalities, different grooves, all forming a joyful musical community that is unique of its kind.”
