Mavì is the title of the Biondini-Godard-Niggli trio’s new album. It refers to a clear blue, the colour seen when looking at the earth from outer space. And it says a lot about the sounds it offers us. We hear music which seems to emanate from the spheres while remaining wholly worldly, emotional and sensual. The trio formed by Luciano Biondini, Michel Godard and Lucas Niggli is unusual in various senses. Firstly the musicians’ nationalities: Biondini (born 1971) comes from Spoleto in the Italian province of Perugia, Michel Godard (born 1960) comes from Héricourt near Belfort in the Franche-Comté in France, and Lucas Niggli (born 1968) is Swiss, a native of the Zürich Oberland who spent the first seven years of his life in Cameroon. So this is a meeting of various cultures and languages.
