Whether in the cabarets of Berlin, in the palazzi of Rome, or in the streets of New York - the 1920s were alive with an explosive atmosphere. In permissive revue shows, exclusive private parties and dark bars, a music scene emerged, unique in its wild variety of dances, languages and genres. Fluctuating between excessive joie de vivre and melancholy, it reflected the zeitgeist of a torn society between the Golden Twenties and the Great Depression.
As seldom before, we can now feel the dichotomy of 100 years ago. The need to solve social challenges together while uniting respect for grief suffered with a thirst for a new zest for life has emerged.
The Milanese Dixie Blue Blowers under the direction of Mauro L. Porro have specialised in the diverse musical shades of the 1920s as part of the music collective La Boutiquephonie. Together with the singer Sandhya Nagaraja and using original historical instruments, they dedicate themselves to an authentic reconstruction of the sounds and moods of that era.
