Singer, Translator, and MSc Student in Lund, Svezia
Hej! My name is Alessandra, I'm Italian and I currently study a Master's program at Lund University (Sweden). I'm majoring in East Asian Studies, with a focus on Japan. I have a Bachelor's degree in Japanese Language and Culture. I can speak English, Italian, Japanese and a little bit of Swedish and I've been working as a translator for few years already.
I have 10+ years of experience as a musician and singer. I studied modern and classical singing for many years and sang as a soloist, with bands and with choirs in multiple countries. I was the winner of the "Premio Musicale Giovani Talenti" 2010 held by Rotary Club (Rotary International) in Rome, where I competed against other young singers, bands and musicians from schools all over the city. I am training as a lyric coloratura soprano with a professional opera singer and I was accepted into a Masterclass held by professional singer and vocal coach Freya Casey during fall 2016.
I love to experiment with my voice in order to sing different genres and cross boundaries! From pop to operatic singing and even growls... I have a genuine interest in all the different sounds the human voice can produce. My current vocal range is G#2-F6 (almost 4 octaves!), which, in addition to a unique, warm timbre, makes my voice incredibly versatile but also instantly recognizable. I play the guitar and a little bit of piano.

I am an editor at Femme Metal Webzine, where I write reviews and interviews for music of all genres (via e-mail, skype and face-to-face). You can find all my articles here. For any inquiries related to the Webzine, drop me a line at alessandra[at]femmemetalwebzine[dot]net
