Marco Marchi & the Mojo Workers

Since founded in 2009, Marco Marchi & The Mojo Workers have been increasingly successful with critics and audiences, crowned in winning the Swiss Blues Challenge in 2011. This gave them the opportunity to perform at the most important contests of the blues world like the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (TN) and the European Blues Challenge in Berlin, and at numerous jazz and blues festival in Europe. The band's repertoire is rooted in the traditional African-American music from the first decades of the last century until the 50s, mixing sounds of blues culture (pre-and post-war blues) with ragtime, early jazz, piedmont, ballads, spirituals ... All songs are interpreted trying to assimilate the original energy and played with passion and authenticity, disregarding the technical virtuosity. Everything revisited with a completely personal style. the result is a mixture of exciting sounds and full of pathos of the past.
