-----

Italian harpist and composer, Marcella Carboni is considered one of the most active jazz harpists in Europe. Her performances are often defined as a balance between jazz and European music, played with impeccable technique and enchanting sound, and despite a strong dedication to Afro-American music she kept exploring all contemporary styles.

The encounter with NY harpist Park Stickney revealed the potentiality of the jazz harp to her and inspired her to develop an original style. Since then Marcella Carboni has been participating, with her electro-acoustic harp, in seminars, workshops, jazz and postgraduate studies in Italy and abroad.

She took part in movie and theatre projects and easily manages to suit her instrument to soul, pop or electronic music. To this day she still is the only harpist who has appeared in the Italian Top Jazz musicians ranking as “best musician of the year” and “best new talent”.

Her collaborations in the jazz field have been frequent and prestigious, having played together with the likes of Rosario Giuliani, Bruno Tommaso, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Paolo Fresu, Anthony Braxton, Edmar Castaneda, Javier Girotto, Daniela Spielmann, Enrico Fink, Ricardo Zegna, Paolo Damiani, Fabrizio Sferra, Yuri Goloubev, Gianni Coscia, Peter Waters, Joanna Rimmer, Elisabetta Antonini, Max De Aloe, Riccardo Fassi, Gabriele Coen, Francesco D'Auria, Francesca Corrias, Susanna Stivali, Aldo Bassi, Giacomo Uncini, Mario Corvini, Roberto Olzer, Simone Alessandrini.

Besides her intense musical activity, she is also engaged in teaching jazz harp in Italian harp music schools, the Conservatories of Matera, Benevento, Pesaro, Torino, Parma, Brescia, and in several Harp Festivals like Salsomaggiore (Italy), Ligerz (Switzerland) and Perpignan (France). Since 2011 she is a professor of jazz harp at the Nuoro Summer Jazz Seminars directed by Roberto Cipelli.
