About me

Verona, Italy

I am an italian-argentinian celloist. I was trained and I work as a classical musician (I am currently principal cello of I Virtuosi Italiani chamber orchestra in Italy) but in the last years I have also explored different fields of ethnic and experimental music, as a musician, improviser and, most recently, composer. My music tries to criss-cross classical music, electronic music, and the tradition of my homeland, Argentina. I also play in a Tango trio and I like to work with different artists such as dancers, singers and actors in original performances.

Midday Prayer

A middle-eastern bolero combining elements from Iran/Greece/Argentina. A different kind of prayer or confession in the brightest hour of the day when the sun reaches its highest point and nothing can be hidden. Exposed, vulnerable, and yet liberated. Farrokzad, an iconic poetess, a rebel who is moving in the line of the great tradition of Persian poets such as Rumi. Through her verses, Sin transforms and acquires a divine quality. It becomes an anthem of femininity standing against the absurdity and the evolving darkness of our present.
