About Trio Lisipi Sometimes jazz happens to you as something least expected. Exactly as it happened to Liliya Akhmetzyanova, the pianist from the jazz trio Lisipi.

Then years of happy sight reading and playing classics by memory got suddenly interrupted by Silvio Canargiu--a guitarist, bassist, singer, composer, producer and such a handsome man. Yes, love happened, they ......
