Franco Luciani

Biography

Franco Luciani was born in 1981. His harmonica goes through a wide stylistic spectrum, from folklore to tango with fusion elements. He has performed in America and Europe and has recorded five albums.

Franco Luciani and the Buenos Aires pianist and composer Federico Lechner met in Spain at the 2008 Zaragoza Expo.
Lechner, together with his quartet and Luciani, recorded Falsos límites, an album in which tango, jazz and folklore get mixed. The idea of the album came up during the sessions carried out at the Café Central in Madrid, on September 2009. The album includes versions of folklore and tango classics –“Zamba de Lozano” and “Los mareados”, for example– and also original pieces written by Luciani as well as Lechner.
