Founded by Kari Ikonen (piano, moog - Finland) and Manuel Hermia (sax, bansuri - Belgium), the Orchestra Nazionale della Luna is a modern jazz quartet, both rooted in the tradition of jazz and open to our time and all the horizons of our vast world.

Both the moog and the bansuri expand the field of a classical quartet by inviting the sounds of India, Arabic music, as well as more electronic effects. Piano and sax are supported by the background of an intense rhythmic complicity between Sébastien Boisseau (double bass - France) and Teun Verbruggen (drums - Belgium), who share with the soloists rhythmic and melodic jousting at any moment surprising.

An intoxication of swing rocked by modernism, with this suspicion sometimes of spiritual depth in the music, sometimes of quirky humor almost fellinian, which make this Orchestra Nazionale della Luna a musical meteorite quite unique.
