illachime quartet










Illachime Quartet was founded in 2002 after the meeting between two musicians from Naples, Italy: multi-instrumentalist and composer Fabrizio Elvetico and guitarist and multimedia musician Gianluca Paladino. They worked through the years with many musicians and finally the lineup was permanently settled with cellist Pasquale Termini and drummer Ivano Cipolletta
Illachime Quartet has always been faithful to a hybrid musical style influenced by music for film, improvisation, jazz, post-rock and much more, for which the band has come up with the formulas of free-form, and also avant jazz and abstract punk.
