Luisa is an artist of the voice: voice to her means singing, transforming sounds, composing, improvising, acting and traveling in different cultures, but starting from the culture she belongs to, then drawing from this palette of colors to “paint” her sound projects.
Her latest recording is “Like a tree in winter”, in which voices play a major role. Produced together with Gabriele Bombardini it is dedicated to the North, mountains and metaphorically to the hard life of mankind.
Rumì is also a multimedia event, a concert immersed in suggestive videos and ancient stories: it magically joins together contemporary sounds and words from a past world, progressive-jazz-rock sounds with the colors of the dialect and the imaginative world from Romagna.
