An Immersion into a unique atmosfere, with an all original sound of cosmic and spiritual jazz, afro grooves, experimental, sounds and improvisation.
The harp, double bass and drums  emerse themselves in the hight and depths of blue inspiring an entrancing sound journey where the voice, percussion, asian and african instruments and sound effects, paint the way with infinite shades.
Australian Harpist Diane Peters here side by side with two well known jazz musicians on both the Italian and International scene 
Enzo Carpentieri e Marc Abrams. 
Right from the start Diane Peters has been inspired by the first non classical harpists such as Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby and by the jazz of the Coltrane era. Diane has developed her own original sound playing both solo and various groups from jazz to electronic music, using both voice, and effects combined with her ancestral instrument, in a modern setting, playing an acoustic electric “Camac Blue.”

ITALIAN
Una immersione in un atmosfera unica con un sound tutto originale tra cosmic and spiritual jazz, afro grooves, sperimentazione, suoni etnici ed improvvisazione.
Arpa, contrabbasso e batteria si immergono nelle alte e basse profondità del blue ispirandosi in un viaggio sonoro avvolgente dove anche voce, percussioni, strumenti etnici da asia ed africa, ed effetti sonori dipingono il percorso con infinite sfumature.
Diane Peters, arpista jazz australiana, è affiancata da 2 jazzisti ben conosciuti sulla scena Italiana ed Internazionale: Enzo Carpentieri e Marc Abrams. 
Sin dall’inizio Diane Peters si è ispirata molto dai primi arpisti non-classici quali Alice Coltrane e Dorothy Ashby e dal jazz dell’epoca di John Coltrane. Diane ha sviluppato un suo sound originale suonando sia da sola che con vari gruppi dal jazz alla musica elettronica, utilizzando voce, pedali ed effetti sul suono ancestrale della sua electro acoustic Harp “Camac Blue.”
