The Penticton & District Community Arts Council is proud to present The Sicilian Jazz Project.

Michael Occhipinti’s Sicilian Project has been dazzling audiences world-wide with an intriguing mix of rare Old World Sicilian folk material and the New World sounds of electric guitars, chamber music, funk and reggae grooves, and modern jazz.

Using music sung by Sicilian fishermen, sulphur miners, and folk musicians as a starting point, the music is like a trip on the Mediterranean that somehow manages to detour to Mali, Jamaica, and Toronto.

With astonishing Italian vocalist Pilar fronting the band, the Sicilian Project presents a captivating repertoire performed by truly unforgettable musicians.
