Singer, Improviser, Composer and Writer
Diana has written several articles for our magazine and works with Fiona Mactaggart on our wellbeing initiatives. You can also often find Diana at our London events, supporting!
Her extensive musical background has crossed the evocative atmosphere of ancient music, the warmth and improvisation of jazz music, the aesthetics of belcanto, the daring singing of contemporary repertoire. The exploration of intimate, versatile and intense sounds, combined with the improvisation experienced as an "expressive possibility" outside the stylistic connotations, are the result of the continuous vocal and musical research that pursues.
Her musical activity consists of performances in jazz clubs, theatrical performances, national and international festivals.
Among her artistic collaborations: M° Ennio Morricone and M° Luca Francesconi for contemporary music (the theatre play "Concerto Apocalittico" with text by Stefano Benni, the recording of the soundtrack for the movie "Vatel, in 2000, director Roland Joffè and music by M° Ennio Morricone), "Ensemble Micrologus" for ancient music, "Kammerton" jazz vocal ensemble by Fabrizio Cardosa.
She has collaborated on the following recording projects: “Lo racconta il mare” by Sabino de Bari (2019), "Live at Acuto Jazz" (2017) and "Maintenant" (2015) by Lucia Ianniello, "Voices" by Sabino de Bari (2012), "Più Nove" (2009), by Angelo Schiavi, "Hospitale dè Pazzi Incurabili" by Fabrizio Cardosa (2004), “Il 13” (1994) by Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso.
Her latest music project as leader "On a Cloud", is a tribute to the art of Jeanne Lee, a jazz singer of rare elegance. The CD has been released in January 2019 for the English label SLAM Productions and it was mentioned among best vocal jazz albums of 2019 by The New York City Jazz Record and Jazz Views.
Graduated in Psychology, she carries out an intense teaching activity as a teacher of modern vocal technique, jazz repertoire, jazz and contemporary improvisation, vocal ensembles and psychology of the performer. She combines her training in the psycho-pedagogical field with her vocal and artistic research. She was invited to present her own research about voice and identity within the conference “Sound is sensitive expression of thought” organized by Ipazia ImmaginePensiero for 'Psyche and art' series. Her speech “The different voice” has been recently published.
She's been living in London for some years, where she continues her activity as singer, vocal researcher and singing teacher.
