La Tosca was originally founded in 2014 by Andrea Falcone, Davide Morelli and Antonio Valdez in the vibrant neighborhood of Pilsen in Chicago. Initially performing Italian classics and Latin American music, the band has since welcomed more musicians whose backgrounds have enriched the repertoire of La Tosca. The skills and flexibility of each of the musicians has enabled the band to explore gipsy jazz, classical, neapolitan, and folk music of different cultures and historical periods. La Tosca has also collaborated with rap and hip hop artists - through the Remix project among others - and is in general always seeking inspiration from all horizons. This versatility allows listeners to escape in time and space by imagining the Roman fountain in Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" or feeling the beat of Django in a Parisian 1930's clubs.
