The power of the trio of City of the Sun overturns the perception of the concept of instrumental music, attracting new audiences to such a special genre. Formed in 2011, the City of the Sun are John Pita e Avi Snow on guitars and the percussionist Zach Para. The band's sound has influences that include indie rock, American folk, flamenco and blues: a mix of Rodrigo y Gabriela e Explosions In The Sky.

The trio has quickly established itself as one of the most interesting line-ups on the post-rock scene: it has racked up several sold-out shows at major New York indie venues (Brooklyn Steel, Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theater, to name a few), toured with Peter Bjorn & John, G.Love, STS9 e Thievery Corporation and participated in the soundtrack of the documentaries narrated by Morgan Freeman The C Word. After completing two European tours, in 2017 the band released UNTITLED EPwhose single Perfect Instance is reaching 24 million streams on Spotify. Now, after the release of Chapter I (2019), the line-up announces a new European tour including the two Italian dates.
