Correspondence Vol​.​2 by Francesca Naibo & José Dias, Bandcamp, 2022 on #neuguitars #blog #FrancescaNaibo # JoséDias

Jose Dias is part of the emerging new generation in Portuguese contemporary jazz.
His music is strongly inspired by the visual arts and literature. His projects deviate from the traditional language of jazz, and explore the dialogue between various contemporary sound universes, where experimentation is assumed as a central element. 

Jose Dias Music & Research

Francesca Naibo, guitarist from Vittorio Veneto (Italy) based in Milan, is focused on exploring sound in the divergent yet sonically similar fields of free improvisation, contemporary music and classical repertoire. She’s particularly interested in using both the acoustic and the electric nature of her instrument, adventuring from roaring drones till microscopic vibrations

Guitarists José Dias and Francesca Naibo created a two- volume album based on their musical correspondence across a period of nearly one year (2020-2021). This is not merely a remote collaboration triggered by lockdown, but an intense process of mutual discovery, respect, and cooperation. Dias sent Naibo a set of solo improvisations to which she replied with her own and vice-versa. The album track list is organised chronologically, where each track is the response to the previous solo or group of solos. Both musicians agreed that there would not be overdubbed tracks, as that would not correspond to the way the process was conducted. The album documents their mutual challenging and their personal experiences, with Dias based in Manchester and Naibo in Milan.

This is the second volume of that process, released by Copperfly Records. Both volumes will be exclusively digital and can be downloaded at Francesca Naibo ( and Music | Jose Dias (
