RASSEGNA STAMPA

“Touches of the Italian love affair with beauty can be heard in the voice of Emilia Vancini. She exchanged the floodplains of the Po river for the Dutch polders. The landscape might look similar - wide rivers flowing slowly through endless plains - but the climate created two very different cultures. Her voice conjures up images of a cosy kitchen where the family sits down around the dining table, under the watchful eye of la mamma. With the same ease she can summon a feeling of tristesse, like in a fado, or the raucous resignation of the blues.... Living in different countries has provided her with a wide range of musical influences which result in a fresh new sound, surprising, yet so reassuring. Emilia's voice is to the ear what Italian cooking is to the palate: refined yet direct, controlled but exuberant. Like Italian cuisine, it never bores: it leaves you wanting more".
(Joost van Kasteren)
