I am a voice player and composer born in Milan and living in London. I am passionate and curious about using my voice in creative ways to discover new sounds. I am band leader for FUWAH, Stanza Da Tre and Wells Reflections. I collaborate with musicians and artists in different disciplines. I studied jazz singing with Brigitte Beraha. I am currently deepening my research in singing, Libero Canto, improv and composition with Sara Serpa. To broaden my understanding of the voice I have attended workshops in Mongolian throat singing (Michael Orminston and Candida Valentino), Yiddish and Russian songs (Polina Shepherd), Maquam music (Louai Alhenawi) and others. I am currently working on my MINERALS series, solo album, FUWAH’s fourth album and more.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
