Sade Mangiaracina Trio
Born in Castelvetrano (Sicily) Sade Mangiaracina is a genuine talent in the new Italian jazz. The esteem she enjoys has increased after “Le mie donne”, made for Paolo Fresu’s label Tŭk Music. The album shows a galley of female portraits: great women who left a meaningful footprint in art, politics, and society. Despite being very different, these were the protagonists of their ages and beyond.
Musically speaking, the record combines the jazz language and the free improvisation with Sade’s Mediterranean roots. The esteem for her has grown with “Madiba”, dedicated to Nelson Mandela, released for Tŭk Music. The tribute to the hero who fought against the apartheid of South African racists adds together admiration and passionate nature towards a “romantic” and captivating piano sound.
Sade began to study classical piano at a very young age. After her first successes, she moved to Rome, where she studied jazz with Massimo Moriconi and Danilo Rea. Throughout her career, Sade has worked with Simona Molinari (they performed at the leading international festivals and clubs). She also opened Dione Warwick’s Italian tour dates and participated in the Festival di Sanremo with songwriter Amara. She also collaborated with artists such as Greg Osby, Fabrizio Bosso, Giovanni Tommaso, Luca Aquino, K.J. Denhert, and Francesco Bearzatti. She now works also with the Almar‘à Orchestra, an ensemble of all women coming from the Mediterranean countries and the Arab world.
