Guardian spirits placed to protect a geographical area, tutelary deities of a community according to the Shinto religion, the Ujigami give the title to the Ujig family, a Jazz Prog quartet made up of Edoardo Maggioni, Marco Leo, Konstantin Kräutler e Cesare Pizzetti.
“We deeply believe that music should be created by men for men, and not simply generated by computers. In this way, the risk is to make the rhythm become a mechanical issue opposite to the human rhythm, that is to the heartbeat. The nature of music is opposite to the simple concept of entertainment and we think it is fundamental for the intellectual and spiritual health of man, it is a tool in his hands to reunite with universal beauty.“
