An Evening with Renowned Italian Jazz Artist Nicola Conte

Event Overview

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 15, as the City Theater proudly presents an exclusive concert featuring Nicola Conte, the illustrious Italian jazz musician and producer. The performance is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. on the unique stage set between local churches.

About the New Album: “Umoja”

Nicola Conte, along with his ensemble, will be showcasing his latest album, “Umoja,” during the concert. The term “Umoja” originates from the Swahili language and embodies the principles of unity, harmony, and spiritual interconnectedness.

Collaborative Efforts

This event is organized in collaboration with the “RePosition” platform, a key player in Budva’s independent cultural landscape. The concert aligns with the city’s ongoing bid to become the European Capital of Culture for the year 2028, and serves as a precursor to the final announcement of the title recipient.

The Artist: Nicola Conte

Nicola Conte is not just a musician; he is a classically trained composer, producer, and guitarist. He has gained international acclaim for his groundbreaking approach to acid jazz, which fuses elements of bossa nova, 1960s Italian film music, traditional Indian tunes, and more recently, African rhythms.

A Journey Through Musical Genres

Conte’s artistic realm thrives on the amalgamation of diverse sounds and genres. Since founding the bohemian cultural movement in Bari and the Fez nightclub in the early 1990s, he has been a cornerstone of the global soul-jazz community.

The Concept Behind “Umoja”

As Conte himself emphasizes, “Umoja” is more than just an album; it’s a concept. The album draws inspiration from various sources, blending spiritual jazz, funk, and soul to create a tapestry of positive energy. Through its ten tracks, Conte aims to bridge continents and cultures, culminating in a powerful message of unity and light.

The Collaborators

For this album, Conte has collaborated with an impressive roster of international artists. These include award-winning British singer Zara McFarlane, renowned Finnish saxophonist Tim Lasi, American vocalist Miles Sank, South African drummer Fernando Damon, former bassist Roy Hargrove, Amina Salim, and Serbian flutist sensation Milena Jančurić.
