Born on the island of Sardinia, Italy, Dario Elia is a musician, singer, composer, photographer, writer, and art curator. Having played improvised music since the beginning of the 1990s, he developed a personal modal approach and improvisation technique. In addition to working with his Italy-based band, Dario has toured extensively in Spain, Russia, Thailand, and other countries. On his current U.S. tour, Dario will improvise with local players wherever he plays, and tonight will collaborate with the members of Sugarpants.
Sugarpants is a new trio featuring three of Seattle’s most vibrant and adaptable creative musicians: soprano saxophonist Kate Olson, bassist Paul “PK” Kemmish, and drummer Tom Zgonc. The trio will perform original works spiced with wily improvisation.
