Sincopatico is the fusion of two words: Sincopation and Simpatico; ‘sincopation’ being one of the elements of jazz and ‘simpatico’ an Italian word meaning ‘likeable, pleasant, nice’.
Sincopatico is a program on Italian jazz. Italy has one of the most vibrant jazz scenes in Europe, with over one hundred festivals, musicians of the highest calibre and excellent recording companies.
Sincopatico mainly brings jazz music made in Italy to the Australian public. Italian musicians coming to Sydney are interviewed as well as Australian artists of Italian descent or having artistic liaisons with Italy.

Pino Scuro has been working with the Sydney radio Rete Italia from 1994 to 1998 as a news and current affairs broadcaster and a jazz music presenter, then with the SBS Radio Italian Program from 1998 to 2003 as a journalist.
