The famous musical band “Italian Doc Remix” will present a love songs concert, which will be organized in collaboration with India International Centre, on 24th September in New Delhi.

Founded by Italian guitarist/composer Marco Cappelli and Italian-American percussionist Jim Pugliese, Italian Doc Remix has carved out a unique musical niche for itself since 2004.

The ensemble fuses jazz improvisation, and Italian folkloric/ early music sources to excavate the cultural memory of generations of Italian immigrants and explore the musical space where traditions blur and cross-contaminate, memories fade and distort, and new post-immigration sounds are born.

As part of the Indian tour, the band will be also performing in Mumbai on 20 September 2022.

Members of the band

IDR comprises of vocalist Francesco Pellegrino, guitarist composer Marco Cappelli, bassist and clarinetist Doug Wieselman, trombonist Roberto Schiano, contrabassist Ken Filiano, and drummer Jim Pugliese.

Background

The band made its debut at NYC’s Issue Project Room back in 2004. After touring Europe several times, in 2008 IDR released its first critically-acclaimed debut album, featuring special guests Marc Ribot and DJ Logic. Their last album was Pandemonium which made a strong statement against populism and in favor of immigration as a resource to be welcomed in rich western societies.
