Chiara Civello

I am what I am

A live show – between jazz, pop, and singer-songwriter music – to celebrate the career of an extraordinary artist, both a great author and performer. From her beginnings in New York to her Brazilian collaborations and her encounters with musicians from all over the world, Chiara Civello connects her strong international background with her Italian roots, hybridising languages and boldly experimenting. Accompanying her on stage are three versatile musicians – Dario Bassolino on keyboards, Stefano Costanzo on drums and Ameen Saleem on bass and double bass – improvising on a repertoire ranging from Civello's original songs to pieces by other great composers: Michel Legrand, Ennio Morricone, Sergio Endrigo and many others.



Chiara Civello is a singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. Her musical career began in Boston and New York, where she received her artistic training and met Burt Bacharach and Tony Bennett, who called her the best jazz singer of her generation. She was the first Italian to sign with the legendary Verve label. In Brazil she found a new home, collaborating with Chico Buarque, Ana Carolina, Maria Gadù, Gilberto Gil, Daniel Jobim and many others. She is the artistic director of FestambienteSud, the official eco-festival of Legambiente for Southern Italy. An adventurous artist and woman, she has absorbed the different cultures of the continents where she lived. She can speak and sing in English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French.
