Profile Information

About me:
Italian overtone singer, throat singer(khoomei), musician and flutemaker.

I offer workshops and private lessons using my "4L's method", which allows to gradually learn overtone singing through four paths: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZurQeV5mr8

I fell in love with music when I was a little kid, but I've never been into singing until I discovered the world of overtones.
I always tried to find my own way of expression by learning several instruments, then I finally started singing overtones: since that day I met awesome people all over the world :)
In 2016 I co-founded with Ilaria Orefice the first overtone singing school in Sardinia(Italy): it is called "Sherden Overtone Singing School": we teach how to control breathing and speaking in an effective way, then we train people to discover their own overtones and to use them for creating music or to meditate.
Overtone series is a beautiful gift given to us by nature, so it belongs to anyone.
I also make flutes with PVC pipes, which is fun!
My goal is to bring people together to perform overtone music.
As a band we are:
Sherden Overtone Choir
My voice, fujara(pvc),other PVC flutes, bawu flute, percussions, guitar.
Miroslav Grosser, Huun Huur Tu, Chirgilchin, Natascha Nikeprelevic, Marco Trochelmann, Guthrie Govan, Christian Zehnder, Walter Mantovani

"Concordo con quanto dice Albert. Se ognuno cerca di fare il proprio lavoro e la propria arte in modo leale, preoccupandosi di dare il buon esempio, vedremo la situazione migliorare sempre di più!"
