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.
Founded by Italian singer and accordionist Andrea Falcone in 2014, the band has grown to include a virtuosic ensemble of musicians from France, Poland, Bolivia, Chile and America.
My name is Andrea Falcone and I'm the lead singer of La Tosca, Italian Mambo Ensemble. I'm writing to introduce an Italian music project that i'm proud to introduce to the community. With my band we interpret all the classics that have being making great the music history of our country, 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!
