The young jazz-rock fusion virtuoso Matteo Mancuso from Sicily makes his Swedish premiere. Mancuso is a guitar prodigy who has been praised internationally by, among others, Al Di Meola, Dweezil Zappa, Stef Burns, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Vai. Matteo is a multifaceted guitarist and has developed a personal, original musical language. Already in 2009, at the age of twelve, he performed at the Castelbuono Jazz Festival in Sicily. At a very young age, in 2017, he became a scholar at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. The scholarship was awarded at Umbria Jazz. With him is Riccardo Oliva on bass and Gianluca Pellerito on drums.

In addition to the concert, Matteo Mancuso will do an exclusive workshop during the festival.
