Nadia has always loved folk music and the works of Italian, French, Anglo-Saxon and Spanish songwriters. Nadia’s musical style reflects these influence; her compositions are melodic, bordering on sadness, alive with unexpected rhythmic starts and stops. From folk tunes, Nadia takes you on a journey of her own invention.

“Nadia improvises with the heart, looking for the notes on the guitar in a spontaneous way; a rare quality.”

-Beppe Gambetta, acoustic guitar flatpicker and singer, who has been called a "virtual United Nations of influences: Italian, Ukrainian, Appalachian, Sardinian, Celtic".

Mais où vit le silence?

Nadia’s latest CD is the lucky result of an encounter between Nadia and the French poet Claudine. Nadia’s passion for French music allied with Claudine’s ironic and emotional lyrics inspired Nadia’s musical composition and interpretation.

Milano, Stazione Centrale


It’s almost all about the largest industrial city in Italy: Milan. A virtual monograph on the Milanese singer songwriter Enzo Jannacci plus a moving folk song and a couple of Peter Zemp original compositions. Between city and country: refinement and expressive simplicity.

Alle sorelle ritrovate

A. Laterza & N. Gabi

In the mid-Seventies, feminism was the rage in Italy. Young women formed self-awareness groups, attended rallies and sang songs. Antonietta Laterza of Bologna, Italy, was the best singer songwriter to give voice to this movement; she was not only an activist but also a poet and an original, modern musician. The CD was recorded live in a theatre in Quarto Oggiaro in Milan.
