Cosimo Keita Trio
Formed in 2017, the Cosimo Keita Trio performs a fusion of rare groove, original music and jazz standards with an emphasis on beautiful melodies and exciting rhythms. With guitarist Francesco Lo Castro, pianist Claudio Corona and drummer Cosimo Keita Cadore.
Francesco Lo Castro, the band’s guitarist has collaborated in the studio and toured worldwide with artists including international multi-platinum artist Patrizio Buanne, Blue Note, best-selling act Us3 and two-time Grammy winner Eric DeFade. Additionally, he has an impressive six albums to his name.
Bruno D’Ambra, sought-after pianist and session keyboard player, has worked on a wide variety of different music projects, ranging from jazz to pop, from electronica to world music, from cabaret to rock and funk. In 2011, he was invited to play for President Barack Obama at the American Ambassador’s residence in Regent’s Park before Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Bruno has recorded with a number of international artists at Abbey Road Studios, Metropolis Studios, and Air Studios. With his own quartet he has played at Ronnie Scott’s and collaborated with artists such as Jim Mullen, Tony Kofi, Fulvio Sigurtà, and the Puppini Sisters among others.
Last but not least, Cosimo Keita Cadore on drums has played in countless venues both in the UK and around the world. Amongst others he has supported Shakira, Lionel Richie, Usher, Ricky Martin, Mariah Carey, Eddy Grant, LSO, Nelly Furtado, Robin Eubanks, Juliet Kelly, Tony Kofi, and was a cast member of the highly acclaimed BBC2 drama `Dancing On The Edge`.
We are excited to showcase the new music written by the band. Karamel is the perfect venue for this with their obvious love for good music and excellent food. For us, as Italians, food is always an important ingredient for a great night out!
This is a free online event organised by Collage Arts, leading arts development charity in Haringey's Cultural Quarter providing artist studios, live events and young people's training programmes.
