The artist from Palermo, and guest of honor at the past NIAF annual gala, will introduce herself by singing and playing at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Merimò.
She’s a young voice between the past and the future. Considered the spiritual winner of “The Voice of Italy 2015,” Salerno’s music is enchanting.
“Alessandra is able to create a world from which I would never leave. When I hear a voice like hers, I want to stay in that world and remain in silence for a minute after I leave it…” (Robi Facchinetti – Pooh)
Alessandra Salerno’s “blind audition” is used as the Promo for the show one week prior to its first broadcast. According to WebTopTrends Italia, it has become a true web phenomenon with over 2 million web views, over 40 thousand shares, and her name at the top ten most commented Tweets. In Latin America, her video has 3 million web views and over 50 thousand shares.
As the original interpreter of Rosa Balistrieri, she has a repertoire that includes various genres. She also has a production under her own name. And surprise–she also plays the autoharp: “I began to study it after falling in love with June Carter and Johnny Cash.”
