Young Carnic songwriter has recorded his first solo-album, Conte Flame , in 2015.

Recently, his second album has been released which contains more elaborate songs than the previous ones, written in Friulian and Italian.
21.00 Contrada Lorì – Veneto
It all started in 2012, when Roberto Rizzini, former author, songwriter, music therapist, gathered in his home, in the village of Avesa, some friends, passionate like him about food, wine and music, with the intention to do together a music that tastes the same as true Valpolicella: traditional, local, seasonal, without artifice. The project was called Contrada Lorì, because it was born in a small district on the banks of the Lorì, the torrent of Avesa, just outside Verona. They produced two records: Doman l’è festa del 2013 and Eviva il mar 2015.

21.00 Random Quartet – Italy
The Random Quartet was born in 2006 within the G. Verdi Conservatory of Turin; after the final exam, they continue together a musical discourse even outside the academic environment. Little by little, the idea of a string quartet detached from traditional canons takes shape, in which can coexist genres and tastes of music,that are very different from one anothert. Starting from these premises, develops a 360 degree musical experience, even if based on the solid foundations of the classical tradition. In 2007 the experiments began with arrangements of soundtracks, pop songs, and folk songs until the arrival to rock and metal music, to witness the great versatility of this training and YouTube.
