Formed in 2004 by four major actors of the Toulouse, France scene Pulcinella plays an omnivore kind of jazz, fond of rock, tango, musette, and eastern Europe music, all in order to serve musical stories and sparkling colors pictures.

For 15 years, this playful quartet has not grown tired of doing everything it wants. With drums, a double bass, an accordion and a saxophone, Pulcinella mixes funk, jazz, Balkan music, electro, musette and progressive rock to create a polymorphic and borderless music. With more than 600 concerts on the clock, the quartet gets real on stage, it has performed in prestigious festivals such as Jazz in Marciac, the Festival Radio France, Rio Loco, Jazz sous les Pommiers, the London Jazz Festival, the Odessa Festival. The band travelled the roads of some twenty countries such as Honduras, Guatemala, Bulgaria, Tajikistan, Moldova, Colombia, India and even Vietnam to celebrate the 1000 years of the capital Hanoi!

Greedy of encounters, the Pulcinella always like to collaborate with other artists. In addition to new creations with different musicians (Émile Parisien, Leïla Martial, Andreas Schaerer, Hervé Suhubiette... ), they like to rub shoulders with other artistic fields: Pulcinella composed the music of theatre plays and film concerts, collaborated with dancers, illustrated text readings, accompanied circus acts... Pulcinella created in 2017 Le Grand Déballage (futuristic dancing ball where mazurka, afrobeat, waltz and merengue clash one on the other) and started a new musical adventure with Italian singer Maria Mazzotta in June 2019.

The new and 6th Pulcinella album titled ÇA ("it" in English) is out now on legendary Hungarian BMC Records (Budapest Music Center). More electric than the previous ones, ÇA hosts a gallery of mutant sounds straight out of an Elka organ and pedals of strange effects... an atypical music serving an ode to the ÇA, a stream of desires without censorship studied by Doctor Freud.
