Germana Stella La Sorsa

Italian London-based Jazz Singer and Storyteller Germana Stella La Sorsa started performing in Italy at an early age, working her way up through the Italian Jazz scene to ultimately perform at the side of one of the most influential European jazz musicians: Franco Cerri (Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan, Django Reinhardt and many more). After relocating to London in 2017, Germana's unique talent was quickly recognised leading to developing her own projects (including JiC_Jazz in Cinema_Project, alongside the english double bass player Joe Boyle) and performances at most of the main London jazz venues - such as the iconic Ronnie Scott's, Vortex Jazz Club, Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, Oliver's Jazz Bar and Kansas Smitty's. ​The move to London inspired La Sorsa to compose new material and this creative impetus eventually led to the composition of much of the material on her debut album 'Vapour', released on the London based label 33 Jazz Records, and now available on all major platforms.
