Bosco Sacro (IT)

Bosco Sacro is an Italian quartet founded in 2020. Its members have been constantly releasing and performing music within the Italian and European underground scene during the last decade: Paolo Monti (The Star Pillow, DAIMON), Giulia Parin Zecchin (Julinko), Luca Scotti (Tristan da Cunha) and Francesco Vara (Tristan da Cunha, Altaj).

Inspired by visions of sublime, reconciling vastness coming from the contact with nature and landscapes, united by a genuine devoutness to the practice of music as an healing, liberating movement, their style features dreamy atmospheres, slowed-down rhythms and an intense sonic and spiritual depth. Their musical roots come basically from ambient, doom and trip-hop.

The creation of their debut album entitled Gem, came as an impressively spontaneous and clean, natural process, leading to the formation of a sound which unites all past experiences of each individual musician into a new expressive language. With the skilful contribution of producer Lorenzo Stecconi (who, among others, worked with Amenra, Zu, Ufomammut, Lento), “Gem” was recorded in an unique session during the first days of October 2021 at AMM Monteggiori Studio, a peaceful place in the Tuscan hills surrounded by silence and woods.

The album was released the 10th of February 2023 by the cult label Avantgarde Music,  and was followed by an Italian and an European Spring tours, which will continue during the cold seasons.

Bosco Sacro live perfomances bring Gem further beyond its studio form and have been described by audience and critics as  “passionate”, “cathartic”, “explosive”, “ritualistic” and “genre-crossing”. They played throughout half Italy with appearences at Frantic Festival and a European tour.
