Sawaari explores the nexus of Indian taals, Arabic maqams, and trance music from North Africa and Italy, fully encompassing the varied interests and backgrounds of its band members: Fabio Pirozzolo (vocals and percussion), Jussi Reijonen (oud), Mike Rivard (sintir and double bass), and Amit Kavthekar (tabla). With an emphasis on rhythm, the music they create together has a searching, exploratory quality that brings together the meditative with the energetic, taking the listener from sparse tranquility to complex syncopations in an moment. Meaning "to ride" in Hindu, Sawaari invites audiences to be transported into a world of rhythm and sound that knows no borders, no limitations.

Meridian 71 is an eclectic and international ensemble of Boston-based musicians, led by drummer and composer Giuseppe Paradiso.
The ensemble has been active since 2012, releasing that same year the first album "Otherness Collection", featuring all original compositions by G. Paradiso.
The original music performed by Meridian 71 is characterized by a very distinctive and unique voice, as a result of an extensive research into various traditions and cultures, with influences that range from jazz and improvised music to Mediterranean, African and Middle Eastern traditions.

"Music that talks to the listener, rich of several and different cultural elements that Giuseppe and his magnificent band blend wonderfully together with sweetness and energy. Encounter and fusion of melodies, harmonies and rhythms that evoke arcane atmospheres, intense sentiments and distant landscapes, but strongly present and real. Music that makes you travel beyond the boundaries of imagination to offer you swirls of deep emotions."
