The MinAfrìc Orchestra was founded in 2007 as a natural continuation of Pino Minafra’s Sud Ensemble. The orchestra, which also saw the presence of Livio Minafra as composer and arranger, is composed by the elite of Apulian jazz : Roberto Ottaviano, Gaetano Partipilo, Nicola Pisani, Giorgio Vendola ... There are also some important musicians who shared passions and projects with Minafra from a long time : Sebi Tramontana, Beppe Caruso, Carlo Actis Dato, to name a few. Guests of the album is the vocal quartet Faraualla with their ancestral sound and mystery.
A warm and generous sound, tormented and dramatic, where the cry, the melody, the rhythm, the irony and improvisation work together in a strange equilibrium. An all-Southern sound which draws from both a real and an imaginary South. A land in continuous metamorphosis which has geographically been a natural bridge and port throughout the centuries towards the East, the Mediterranean, Africa, the Balkans and today towards the New Europe.

“It is not just a CD we’re talking about, despite the frankness in which the tracks are presented. It’s a sort of journey, which mutates the traditional perception of space and time. As if we were looking out of the window of a train which departs from Ruvo di Puglia, and we see that the first stop is
Dakkar, the second New York, the third Belgrade, the fourth Buenos Aires, the fifth Istanbul and so on. A journey that only the imagination can make possible. And so, the carriage is departing… no, it’s playing!” Ugo Sbisà
“In the MinAfrìc music there’s an irrisistible vital energy that is intrinsic to jazz mixed with popular and ethnic music, both local and music from around the world; in fact it’s impossible not to think of the antique Greek civilization and its forgotten divinity, which, whether we are conscious of it or not, we have all come from. Among the Gods is Dionysus and his imagination, the God of uncontrolled impulses, unrestrained dancing, irrationality, folly and the creator of wine”. Giuseppe Murolo

Pino Minafra, trumpet player, composer, trumpet teacher at “Conservatorio di Bari”, has founded and directed the European “Europa Festival Jazz” of Noci” from 1989 to 1993; then the “ Talos Festival” of Ruvo di Puglia from 1993 to now.
