“Futura: italian music around the world

Categories: Uncategorized -Culture and creativity -Music and Performing Arts

Online the video concerts by the italian artists who performed at mondo.NYC in 2021.


“Futura” is the project created to support the promotion of Italian music abroad, as a result of the collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Italia Music Lab foundation. It consists of a music video archive that includes performances by Italian artists who over the past two years have played during the digital editions of many showcase festivals around the world.

Mondo.NYC is New York’s Annual Music, Arts & Technology Business Conference & Showcase Festival. Mondo brings together its global community of music, arts and tech industry insiders and innovators, emerging artists and their fans. In 2021, the event took place online and featured several Italian artists: the Italian-Canadian versatile singer Sara Jane Ceccarelli and Julie’s haircut, a band active since late 90’s with a long history of sonic otherworldliness.

Active since the late nineties, Julie's Haircut is a band from Emilia, northern Italy, devoted to spacey, hypnotic sounds. The band’s music has evolved in time, through a series of albums and EPs, from the garage-rock soulful energy of their debut towards more experimental grounds, reaching a kaleidoscopic eclecticism that spans rock and psychedelia, from electronic to minimalism, with echoes of jazz, ethnic, dub and drone music. They have been making music with Damo Suzuki, Sonic Boom, Philip Corner, Valerio Cosi and more. Their latest album "In The Silence Electric" has been released on 4th October 2019 by Rocket Recordings.
