nello - antonello tosto valse naive




A composer, a pianist, an arranger, an improviser and, lately, a video maker. Antonello makes music like shepherds make cheese: with love.

“My music is not really mine, as I am the result of the interactions with all the people around me: therefore my music cannot exist without you.

Enjoy my art so it can exist.
Enjoy my art so I can exist.”



Di Lecce

An artist, illustrator and architect.

“I love to create spaces, real or imaginary spaces.”
