Anello "Lalloji" Capuano

An Italian-born lute player, percussionist, ethnomusicologist, composer, arranger, producer, and sound designer in several musical fields including medieval, Mediterranean, oriental, world, ethno-electro, and improvised music. After playing in many groups as a jazz & pop musician since the age of 13, he studied for several years Middle-Eastern classical and folk traditional music at the Conservatory of Music in Marrakesh (Morocco) and Indian classical music at the Musicology Department of the Benares Hindu University in Varanasi (India), as well as undergoing private intensive training with many renowned teachers. Since 1982, while living in the South of France (for 7 years) and then in Paris (for 15 years), he has been the leader or a member of several music and theatre ensembles and performed extensively in Europe, the USA, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. He has composed for the theatre, ballet, as well as for shadow plays, films, documentaries, and fashion shows. As a leader or session musician, he recorded over 25 CDs and appeared in many radio and television broadcasts. He has lived in Ubud, Bali since 2006 and, apart from playing with and producing local and visiting artists, he is currently working in his home studio on personal projects that combine the sample computer-based electronic music production of today with the acoustic sound of ethnic instruments of the oriental world.
