Take your party in Italy with La Tosca!
Winner of Chicago Magazine's "Best Cocktail Party Entertainment" award in 2017, La Tosca performs sophisticated, yet supremely danceable music spanning gypsy jazz, Italian folk, classical music, and tango.
Performing songs in five languages, the quintet combines violin, guitars, upright bass, and accordion to create rich, energetic music that defies easy placement.
Their sound evokes images of 1930's Parisian night clubs, South American street festivals, European ball rooms, and sun-baked weddings in Southern Italy.
La Tosca was founded in 2014 by Andrea Falcone, Davide Morelli and Antonio Valdez in the vibrant neighborhood of Pilsen, Chicago.
Since then the group has grown to become a truly international collaboration, with members from Italy, Mexico, Poland, Bolivia, France, the American Midwest, and the Southwest. Inevitably, their repertoire is wildly diverse. Their music is timeless, combining elements of gypsy jazz, classical, latin, jazz, and traditional tarantella spanning hundreds of years of history.
You may feel like in a smoky hot jazz club in 1930s Paris for a moment and in the next, as if you were swaying to the whirling rhythms of a tarantella in 1700s Naples.
With La Tosca we interpret all the classics that have being making great the music history of Italy, starting from the folkloric roots to the songs that have being making memorable the atmosphere of the great Italian movies of Federico Fellini.
We're available for all kind of occasion, ready to delight your time, able to let you travel back to Italy for a day!
