“We never say no to a selected piano performance and here is something great from Igor Longhi. "La Luna" follows a slow note structure with specific peaks and fast dramatic end. Like a flower that blossoms in the last Winter days.”

The moon: fascinating, magnetic, and sensual. Solitary light and beacon of hope even in the darkest night, friend and companion of the most intimate dreams, invisible ruler of time. Thus was born; this dedication to the queen of the night, on a late autumn evening while, sitting at my piano, I was admiring her tall and shining and making her the keeper of a secret between mutual glances and whispered words to my soul.

Pianist and composer Igor Longhi started his piano classical studies as a five-year-old kid.
During his musical life, he explored many different genres, from hard rock to reggae and in 2002, contributes forming the international reggae band Makakojump. From 2002 to 2012, the band released 4 full albums, 2 EPs and toured among all EU sharing the stage with a lot of international artists as Ky-Mani Marley, Manu Chao, Skatalites and much more.

During this years, he capitalizes on his musical influences, resulting from great masters such as Einaudi, Yiruma, Tiersen, evolving into an intimate, expressive music, making of classicism and minimalism his flag.

In 2015 he started writing soundtracks for documentaries, commercials and video clips.
