  • Antonio Onorato Trio
    an introspective journey around the world, in the countries where Antonio Onorato brought his music and where he confronted himself with different cultures. This musical journey starts from Napo to land in America, Africa and the Middle East, and then returns to southern Italy, where the guitarist-composer originates.
