Folk Eiserner Eversteiner Award Winner - Germany
Corriere della Sera - “In fact, what is immediately striking about the record is the strongly assertive timbre and the great power of Rachele Andrioli; then, on the thread of listening, all the nuances emerge that the great control of her instrument allows her to give to singing”
la Terrace Magazine - “Rachele delivers warmth and emotion with her powerful voice”
Blogfolk Magazine - “One of the most interesting artists that Salento music scene has expressed in recent years”
L’Italie a Paris - “Deep and inhabited voice”
events.at - “Rachele Andrioli with her deep and unmistakable voice, sometimes breathy, sometimes screaming in a southern Italian temperament”
Rachele Andrioli measures herself with singing, spacing in between traditional music and the role of the chansonnier, from music rooted in Salento to world music, to jazz. She started off collaborating over several years with “Officina Zoè”, one of the first and somehow most radical expressions of music from Salento, Puglia. Together with the band she participated in important festivals inside and outside national borders. Her musical journey continues, ranging from Italy to India, Lebanon and the Americas. The artist features in several discographic productions.
In her musical research, she never forgot her latin soul, open to modern influences and mindful of her Mediterranean roots.
Rachele studied jazz at the “Tito Schipa” Conservatory in Lecce and she now collaborates with the most diverse projects, recently being “Rachele Andrioli and Rocco Nigro”, “Opa Cupa” and “Giro di Banda di Cesare Dell’Anna”; occasionally she plays with “Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino”, “T’amai” (Giancarlo Paglialunga with Redi Hasa and Rocco Nigro), “Project Adria” with Claudio Prima, Emanuele Coluccia and Francesco Pellizzari.
