Attend the very first Jazz à Lisula festival, orchestrated by Munticellu in Festa and the village of Occhiatana!
Experience an exceptional evening with the Mandy Gaines Quartet in an intimate concert in an enchanting setting. A unique musical rendez-vous!
At 9pm, Mandy Gaines Quartet with Mandy Gaines (vocals), Nicola Sabato (double bass), Cédric Chauveau (piano) and Mourad Benhamou (drums):

- Mandy Gaines -
Her powerful voice evokes both the technical perfection of Sarah Vaughan and the sensitivity of Billie Holiday. Mandy Gaines is one of those great black American singers who dazzles with her voice, range, swing, scat, symphonic inflections and stage presence.

- Nicola Sabato -
"A self-taught musician, Nicola Sabato studied with the masters RAY BROWN, PAUL CHAMBERS, OSCAR PETTIFORD, SAM JONES, RON CARTER and others.
He also became a leader, setting up a number of bands which, though all different, have swing and the joy of playing in common.

- Cédric Chauveau -
He is developing his trio with Nicola Sabato (double bass) and Mourad Benhammou (drums). This trio accompanies New York saxophonist Craig Handy on tour in April 2013. A very active member of the Mingus Big Band, he has often played with some of the greats (Dee Dee Bridgwater, Herbie Hancock, Betty Carter, etc.).

- Mourad Benhammou -
Performing at the world's greatest festivals, collaborating with young musicians as well as living legends of American jazz, Mourad has imposed his swing, his musicality and his implacable efficiency. With his playing deeply rooted in the hard bop tradition, he works with jazzmen who have left their mark on the music.
