A renowned singer whose presence has graced the stages of the world, Filippa Giordano’s powerfully beautiful and sweet voice flows from her soul and entire body.
Born in Palermo, in beautiful Italy, Filippa Giordano has always been surrounded by art, especially music. As a child she studied ballet in Rome and a few years later surprised all of Europe with her presence at and participation in the Sanremo Music Festival, which brought her widespread recognition. Since then her career has taken off, smoothly following a meteoric rise to fame: she has sung duets with Fridda of the legendary group ABBA; she is one of Maestro Ennio Morricone’s favorite singers, and she has performed with him on many occasions. She has sung for Pope John Paul II on four occasions and for Prince Charles of England; she has received many international awards, with musical triumphs in Germany, England, Australia, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, and Columbia. Later on she made Mexico a kind of second home when she discovered a connection to and great faith in the Virgin of Guadalupe after she was invited to record the theme song “Flor y Canto” for the movie Guadalupe. She would then go on to pay homage to the Virgin by singing “Mañanitas” at Mexico City’s Basilica de Guadalupe for two consecutive years during the December 12th Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe celebrations.
Likewise, she was invited to last year’s Guadalupe Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, where once again “Flor y Canto” was the theme song for the celebration.
Her album “Con Amor a Mexico” debuted in 2009 and earned a gold record from Sony Music. There is something magical about the voice of Filippa Giordano, an educated magic learned from her study of opera, an art form that Filippa dominates brilliantly proven by her renditions of works by Puccini, Rossini, Bellini, Bizet, Verdi and Schubert. However, the singer has chosen to situate her own songs within the genre of popular music, and she has been extraordinarily successful with this. Her very personal art is a happy and brilliant amalgam of bel canto and pop rhythms, echoes and impressions. All of which contribute to exquisitely produced original works that appeal to a wide fan base.
In November of 2011, she performed at Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes where she launched her most recent album “Alma Italiana, Pasión Latina”, a collection of superb renditions of classic Italian and Mexican songs accompanied by arrangements from the Mariachi Sinfónico.
