"idilio" was formed in 2008 by singer/dancer Chiara Mangiameli, guitarist Diego Alonso, and percussionist Kassandra Kocoshis in the heart of Chicago. The group performs contemporary flamenco music composed by its members as well as innovative interpretations of traditional flamenco songs. Influenced greatly by their upbringing and education, "idilio" writes and arranges flamenco music with subtle jazz, pop, and rock influences appealing to musicians and non-musicians alike. Soon after their debut performances in 2008, the band began developing a growing and loyal fan base and started performing in venues around Chicago and the mid-west. By the middle of 2009 they recorded their debut album entitled ''idilio.''
The groups live performances and CD exhibit energetic and sensual flamenco melodies with powerful dynamics and exciting rhythmic interplay. "idilio''s" repertoire includes contemporary pieces such as Margherita (a flamenco interpretation of a popular Italian song), Onde del Pacifico (a flamenco-jazz-pop song), a few flamenco-jazz pieces, a traditional "malagueña y abandolaos," and a high-energy "tangos" with Arabic percussion.
