“Cette voix qui ose flirter avec ses limites, tout en gardant sa sensualite’ “ – Jazzques.com

Emilia Vancini is an Italian singer who lives in The Netherlands. Her repertoire ranges from jazz to the canzone d’autore italiana, a collection of songs written by Italian singer- songwriters from the ‘50s to the present day. With a great passion for the jazz tradition, a deep connection to her Italian roots and a solid background in piano and classical music studies, Emilia’s commitment to study and constant improvement has earned her the respect of jazz aficionados and critics alike.

Inspired by her love of literature and poetry from a young age, Emilia’s singing is highly influenced by her analysis of the lyrics of a song, adding extra meaning to her performance. The producer of her four albums as a leader, Emilia is an authentic and elegant singer. Emotion lies at the heart of her music.

My Jazz Story

I was first exposed to jazz when I lived in Berlin in 1988. There was a cafe' in Kantstrasse where a saxophone player performed solo in the daytime. I used to go to the cafe' to do my German language homework but I ended up listening to the music instead. That was the beginning of a love story that continues to this day.
