“For his young age, Italian guitarist Luca Zennaro exhibits a strong musical personality” (Jazztrail Journal, NYC). Luca Zennaro (1997, Venice) is an artist who has explored different faces of music in the past years: with his new EP ZENMUSIC (2022) he approaches electronic music in a fresh and interesting way. Luca was 2nd place winner of Riga Jazz Stage 2017, finalist of the prestigious competition “Premio Internazionale Massimo Urbani 2017”, and the winner of “Tomorrow’s Jazz 2018” prize in Teatro La Fenice, Venice.
