  • Standing: Mid price
  • Website

For your wedding I thought of a magical, elegant and certainly very different musical experience.

The Hang or Handpan are the latest instruments invented in the world with an ancestral yet contemporary sound at the same time. The vibrations and the sweet melodies will envelop you and lead you into soundscapes of rare beauty and depth.

I am used to stages of theaters and festivals around the world but I particularly love intimate and intimate concerts.

At your wedding I can perform ONLY - Duo with Cello - Duo with Harp

I like to take care of every detail of my musical intervention together with the spouses or the organizers to ensure the best possible experience during your ceremony and your party.

I used their services for my wedding

I was asked to leave an impression on Davide who played at my wedding which was held at the Castello dell'Acciaiolo in Florence ... Davide is a wonderful musician! I hired him to bring us his splendid music after meeting him at one of his concerts at the "Tiac" Academy of Fine Arts. What can I say .. it fully satisfied us ... my parents and all the guests appreciated it very much.

Davide was accompanied by a beautiful and talented cellist who added even more elegance and magic ...

I know them professionally

As an Event Manager of luxury weddings I have often worked with him in Tuscany.

I have proposed Davide's music several times to the newlyweds both for the moment of welcoming the guests in the villa and during the ceremony. They have always been fascinated and satisfied. Then the instrument that plays divinely is truly magical ... it is as if it were floating in a world of poetry.

I had already seen Davide in concert at the Arcimboldi Theater in Milan and I was very fascinated.

He is also very nice, helpful and super professional

They provided a service in a wedding at which I was a guest

In 2018 I had the opportunity to listen to Davide at a wedding of two dear English friends at the beautiful Castello di Vincigliata in the hills of Florence. I was very impressed by his way of touching the curious instrument and his professionalism. The melodies he played were very deep and lightened the air ... all the guests who gradually arrived were impressed. He was also very elegant and the visual impact of his toolset was beautiful !!!
