Vince Abbracciante is the italian rising star of the accordion, with a remarkable technique, a deep sense of the blues and swing and playes with talent different musical genres. Richard Galliano, speaking about young accordionists in an interview, said: “The person that really impressed me is a young Italian with an origin from Puglia, Italy: his name is Vincenzo Abbracciante. In every piece he embarks on a story which touches me.”
