Study, Passion & Love
Study, Passion and Love: Here are the three key words that make Ilaria Della Bidia a sincere artist, versatile, full of energy and emotion to give;
"A voice that now with grit, now with tenderness, invites the soul to dance, leaving it free."
Tuscan, born and raised in the province of Lucca, she approaches the music from an early age, showing since the beginning a love and an innate instinct for singing and music. She graduated in piano at the Conservatory of Lucca "L. Boccherini" under the direction of Maria Gloria Belli and studied and perfected her vocal technique under the careful and expert guidance of Antonella De Grossi in Rome.
The love for the music has no limits and so Ilaria develops her academic-classical studies towards pop-modern and enriches her experience singing and performing as a guest of important stages in Italy and abroad (Europe, Russia, Africa, Usa) creating in 15 years more than 2000 concerts and shows designed to entertain the audience and to share emotions through the combination of the arts, both musical and visual (dance, mime), and acting in collaboration with actors and dancers.
Ilaria sings in Spanish, Russian, Swahili, French, Armenian, Portuguese, Arabic, Jewish as well as English and Italian as a tribute and honour to some of the countries that kindly have hosted her. She has sung some of their most beloved and traditional songs.
