The recent 2015 ARIA Awards Connected by Telstra marked the third year that Espresso di Manfredi has been the ARIA’s official coffee partner. The collaboration of the two arts – coffee and music – demonstrates ‘Espresso di Manfredi’s dedication to all cultural and creative endeavours, bringing ‘Sprezzatura’ to life!
To celebrate the partnership a limited edition Espresso di Manfredi and ARIA Awards coffee cup was specially created, which Australia’s music elite and industry VIPs sipped their coffees from on the red carpet.
This year’s award winners truly embodied Sprezzatura, being authentic and effortless masters of their art. Highlights of the night included Tame Impala taking home the coveted Telstra Album Of The Year ARIA Award for their ARIA #1 Album, ‘Currents’, and picking up the ARIA for Best Group and Best Rock Album. There were also stellar performances from ARIA Award winners, including Vance Joy (Best Male Artist) who opened the show with his platinum-selling smash, ‘Fire And The Flood’. The crowd were also treated to a performance from Conrad Sewell (Song Of The Year) who closed the show with an incredible mash up of his ARIA Award winning ‘Start Again’ and ‘Firestone’.
Manfredi Martinis were then the flavour of the night at the ARIA’s official after party, which was held at The Star’s stunning rooftop bar, Sky Terrace. With a view almost as exquisite as the crowd, the after party topped off the awards in spectacular fashion.
The 2015 ARIA’s were a true celebration of Sprezzatura, demonstrating Espresso di Manfredi’s creative direction where all things music, fashion and effortless mastery collide. Just like music, coffee is a universally integral part of life, and Espresso di Manfredi is thrilled to be aligned with an industry that shares in their value of cultural expression.
