This is when she also started teaching percussion instruments and didgeridoo. She attended the Classical Music Conservatory in Italy, where she studied classical orchestral percussion. Thanks to my teacher Gianluca Ruggeri she intensified her skill in minimalist music. These years were very important because they allowed her to develop her personal style. At 21 she created and directed a theatrical multimedia performance called ‘Apologia della Gioia’, involving a live ensemble of thirty artists as musicians, actors, dancers, poets and performers. This is the vision she holds in all my works: different expressions of art all in an unique event.
Now these productions are called Samavesha. While she was living in Rome, she authored and performed various pieces of music for theater, dance performances, exhibitions and soundtracks for movies with acclaimed musicians from all over the world. ‘Mood’ is an album with different songs from these works. For almost two years she also collaborated musically and as assistant composer for Paolo Buonvino, one of the most famous italian movie soundtrack composers. Currently, she is based out of Berkeley, California, where she create soundtracks, performances and concerts with artists of all genres. She is the fonder and the artistic director of Samavesha, a production that seeks to unite different expressions of Art in beautiful, inspiring and unique events. In the past few years, she has discovered the Hang, a new instrument made in Switzerland. ‘Hang: a collection of works’ is an album dedicated entirely to this instrument.
Her research is focused primarily on the Hang although she perform with a variety of instruments and I teach percussion and rhythmic improvisation, didgeridoo and circular breathing, Hang and other workshops.
