Soul Vibrations and High Energy into One of the Most Beautiful Italian Voices
Her voice, mighty and sunny, so intense, has already vibrated across the world. Since the successful 3rd place at the Festival of Sanremo in 2004, with her piece “Aria sole terra e mare” (lit. “Air sun ground and sea”), Linda has never stopped and she keeps moving along her way, grabbing new significant goals.
She performs live in the USA, in New York and Atlantic City. She wins first place at the “Megahit” International Festival in Turkey, then scoops 22 competitor nations at the “Cerbul De Aur” Festival in Romania. Indelible are her performances in front of, first, Pope John Paul II and then Benedict XVI, and her participation to the World Youth Day in Bari, Loreto and in Colonia. In the same time, she’s awarded “Young artist for Peace”, in Assisi.
2005 is a crucial year for Linda: a year marked by many events, from discography to the movie world. Her participation to the reality show “Music Farm” on RaiDue channel and above all, the release of her emotional album “La forma delle nuvole ” (lit. “The shape of the clouds”) boasting the collaboration of internationally acclaimed artists, such as the great guitarist Scott Henderson (a real legend), the harmonica player Tollak and Gary Barlow (ex Take That and lyricist for Blue). Same year, in May, she stands out among the protagonists of the “Messa Humilis” lyrical version, in Castel Gandolfo.
One more significant commitment is “Chicken Little“, the first digital cartoon wholly produced by Walt Disney, where Linda plays the main theme “Muoviti”, Stir it up in the English version, sang by two bigwig as Patti LaBelle and Joss Stone. Disney picks Linda for her voice, so unique within the Italian scenario and so rich in soul and black shades, proper of those overseas singers only.
In 2007, she meets a real myth of Italian music: Massimo Ranieri, first for the recording of “Se bruciasse la città” (If the city burned) a track of the Naples singer/actor’s new album, then for her presence as fixed guest in the RaiUno TV show “Tutte donne tranne me” (lit. “All women but me”).
In October 2008 she is present as main musical character during the amazing event highly wanted by Pope Benedict XVI “La Bibbia Giorno e Notte” (Bible – Night and Day), a full reading of the Bible, for seven days and nights. In November 2008 Linda performs in her first overwhelming Jazz concert together with Samuele Garofoli’s group.
In 2009 Blues concert at “Bravo Cafè” – Bologna; Città della Pieve among the “Trasimeno Blues” festival; Blues Festival at Piangipane – Ravenna; “Napoli Mille Colori Project” together with the jazz orchestra directed by Renzo Ruggeri; “Kramer Project” at Castelfidardo’s Festival, with the orchestra directed by Renzo Ruggieri.
At the moment Linda is involved in the realization of her new album in collaboration with Maurizio Fabrizio: the single is available for summer 2010; on September 28, 2010 the entire album, entitled “Tutti quelli” (lit. “Everyone”) will be released.
But it is the LIVE dimension that lets Linda find her natural expression, offering the public thrilling emotions, thanks to her gifted voice of soul, blues with jazz shades singer. Thanks to her versatility, beside the electric performance, Linda is able to perform with a memorable jazz band or in the acoustic dimension, or also with an all women string orchestra, for a highly intense concert.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
