“Su Nichel is Red. Green. Yellow. Don’t think! Feel colours in your mind, paint what you hear!"
Su Nichél is a collective founded by Dean Montanaro and Andrea Carta, whose core motivation lies in making music that can remind people of the power of child-like wonder and imagination.
The band aims for a distinct sound and their music is also rich of ethnic influences, from the vibrant, hectic syncopated beats of Andrea Carta, to the mellow, reminiscent melodies of Qualsevol Nit, a Spanish lullaby, or the 12/8 mantra that is Venolouma, an arrangement of an Aka People song.
Among their more well-known influences we may count the drummer Mark Guiliana, Swedish double- bass player Petter Eldh.Su Nichél were 2021-2022 semifinalists for the KvE Awards.
