The collaboration between Filippo and Emilyn originates from the mutual friendship and musical collaboration with Canadian composer and fiddle player Oliver Schroer, a great artist who passed away in 2008. Emilyn is a Toronto-based fiddler, pianist and accordionist who tours and performs folk / trad / neo-trad styles from Europe and Canada with the bands Lemon Bucket Orkestra, Shoeless and Té (Netherlands). Filippo and Emilyn propose a concert focused on the Bal Folk repertoire proposing both traditional and original music.
The duo presents in 2016 Filippo’s new album Otto Baffi, performing in festivals such as Kaustinen Folk Festival (Finland), FestinVal (Italy), Touscouleurs (Italy). Otto Baffi is Filippo Gambetta’s fourth album of original compositions for diatonic accordion
