Valentina Magaletti | The Impossible Diary

In her current project, Vanishing Twin she has a more conventional jazz approach that finds its escape in the drone/field recordings of the percussive narrative in other experimental/avant-garde productions. Valentina was born in Bari, Italy, and lives in London.
