current projects


Music influenced by Funk, Jazz, Post Punk, Hip-hop, Jungle, Noise and Afrobeat. This project is the brainchild of the saxophonist and sound engineer Sergio Pomante. I was very happy when Sergio and Mario asked me to join, the raw material they were working on was incredibly fresh and groovy. We signed for the italian label Overdrive records in 2021 and released our debut album the same year. 


I knew Nicola Manzan during the glorious MySpace era for being the session guitar player of the italian band Baustelle (Infernal Poetry’s singer Paolo Ojetti was working for them as stage engineer). In 2015 I finally convinced Nicola to become a duo (after 9 years of albums and shows as one-man-band), always contributing to push forward his music.


Inspired by the mighty Nate Wood and Josh Dion, I wanted to play many instruments simoltaneously while serving exclusively the songs, avoiding technical complexity and instrumental “olympics”. Lyrically is inspired by the ugliness of contemporary big cities, the new slavery of today’s workers and the decadence of the railways’ surroundings. Musically it’s something between trip-hop, synth-pop, new wave..


Many years ago I started composing songs with a very weird and unique tuning of my guitar: all strings tuned in G. By this mean, what came out was a very martial and epic music that suited well with the Samurai imagery and history.  Now Bushi is a quartet consisting in members of Bologna Violenta, Morso, ex-members of Ulan Bator and Drunken Butterfly.
