Jacopo Gianninoto and Luca Chiavinato – Exciting Projects with…

Jacopo Gianninoto is an Italian lutenist, guitarist and composer. I have found some pictures of a lute and baroque guitar in his tumblr. He currently works as a teacher for guitar and lute at the Assumption University in Bangkok.

He is currently a Full-Time Lute and Guitar lecturer and Special Advisor for the Department of Music Performance at the Assumption University of Bangkok, Thailand and collaborates with several international music institutions.

I have followed his links and watched some videos from his youtube channel and I have discovered some very interesting and exciting projects. The projects were realized in Bangkok, but also in Italy, mostly there were performances that combined music, dance, art, theater and literature. This is a video from the Baroque Me Baby project:

I think it is very exciting to use the ancient instruments like lute and baroque guitar in very modern performances. I recommend that you visit the blog of Jacopo Gianninoto and the youtube channel. On the website you can find several recordings of lute music as free downloads.
