Da qualche anno è impegnato, come concertista e come didatta, nello studio e nella ricerca dei tamburi a cornice e a frizione della cultura popolare dell’Italia meridionale e di tutta l’area mediterranea. L’intento è di diffondere le peculiarità di strumenti considerati “non colti” in più ambiti artistici possibili.

Ha ottenuto l’attenzione di compositori contemporanei italiani e stranieri eseguendo partiture solistiche e improvvisazioni con formazioni orchestrali, big band, ensemble di musica contemporanea, elettronica e con musicisti e gruppi anche extraeuropei con registrazioni discografiche ed esibizioni in importanti festival e teatri in Italia e all’estero.

Ha all’attivo numerose collaborazioni con produzioni e coreografi come musicista/performer e come consulente e autore musicale. Svolge attività didattica con scuole di circo, conservatori e scuole di vario ordine e grado attraverso laboratori e seminari musicali sull’uso del sistema ritmico indiano. Il variegato percorso artistico è documentato con un’ampia discografia tra collaborazioni e produzioni realizzate.

Since then, he had a vast array of musical experiences in varying styles in the area of Jazz, Classical and Contemporary Music, Musical Theater, Dance and Contemporary Circus. For the last few years Pino has been busy doing concerts, teaching, researching and studying the traditional, folk - frame drums and friction drums of Southern Italy and the entire Mediterranean region. His mission is to teach people about the peculiarities of these so-called “unsophisticated” instruments and to share his passion and diffuse his knowledge in as many artistic circles as possible. In fact, as a “tambourine player”, Pino has already drawn the attention of contemporary Italian and foreign composers (in particular, Riccardo Nova, ed. Ricordi) executing solo scores and improvisations with orchestras, big bands, ensembles of contemporary music, electronic and with groups and musicians of various nationalities, with studio recordings and performances at festivals and theatres throughout Italy and abroad. Pino has collaborated with Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, Akram Khan, Roberto Olivan, Loris Petrillo Danza, Cie Twain, Menhir, Fabbrica C (Italy), Ruspa Rocket. In the area of acrobatic arts and the Nuovo Circo, he collaborate both as teacher and music writer, with the school of circus Flic of Turin (Italy) and Codarts circus of Rotterdam (Holland).
