The world-touring Filomena Campus Quartet present highly creative jazz sets of "beautifully stylish original song" - as described by JazzUK. Award winning vocalist, lyricist and theatre director Filomena Campus fuses jazz with theatre, literature and poetry, drawing inspiration from a variety of influences such as the Commedia dell'Arte, Theatre of the Absurd and her native Sardinia. With her warm stage presence, fluid middle range and fearless improvisations, she knows how to bring out the sun.
Campus leads the quartet featuring Steve Lodder on piano, Dudley Phillips on double bass and electric bass, and Rod Youngs on drums, performing internationally, with recent performances in Jordan, Marocco, Qatar, Thailand and Italy.
The quartet's new project 'Queen Mab' explores the female side of jazz through the character of Mab, a fairy referred to in Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet, where "she is the fairies' midwife, who helps sleepers 'give birth' to their dreams. Campus compares Mab to the Mediterranean myths of the 'Dea Madre' (Goddess Mather) and the Janas (Sardinian legendary fairies) linking her Mediterranean roots to contemporary jazz with an electronic twist.
