Biography

Grazia Di Michele (October 9, 1955) has been one of the first female italian songwriter. She started playing clubs (Folkstudio, Rome) at the age of 18, accompanied by her sister Joanna. In 1976 she published her first Long Played (Clichè, MP Records) whose lyrics incorporated political and social commentary of the emacipation women movement. The rise to fame started in 1986 with the release of her third album, “Le ragazze di Gauguin”, rich of mediterranean sounds. This album peaked in the top 10 at the Italian hit-parades, but it exists a french version too.

In the following years she published many albums. Her song “Gli amori diversi” won the third price at the Festival di Sanremo, the most popular musical festival in Italy.
She has written songs for the most important italian female vocalists. One of her songs, “Se io fossi un uomo”, has been traslated by Randy Crawford (“If I were in your shoes”) and it has become an international hit.

Her beautiful, particular voice is sweet and rich of vibrations and colours; it speaks about love, fear, faith and all the human feelings of a woman.

Her masterpiece is the album “Rudji” (Sony, 1995), in which she plays a very particular ethnic music. It had a weak promotion by label and nowdays is very difficult to find in the shops.

“Respiro” is her last album (2006); it includes the poetic “Habi” (a female kamikaze’s tale). It won several literary prices because the beauty of the lirycs (Premio Lunezia, LuccAutori).

She is a producer and a talent scout too, and actually works as teacher at “Amici”, a popular italian tv show, and at the “Music University of Rome”: she cares about the emotional aspect of singing.

    ANJO NEGRO Como um relâmpago Ela entrou em minha vida, Tão inesperadamente como saiu. Não me deixou rastros E nem carta de despedida, Meu anjo negro retornou às estrelas. Suas asas cobriram-me, Seus lábios devolveram-me a vida. Retirando-me o gosto amargo de viver, Meu anjo protegeu-me Pousando em meu coração. Meu anjo negro retornou às estrelas Deixando-me órfão Para abraçar o meu/seu vazio. Agora sou um prisioneiro sem cela Que, ao ser despertado pela luz da manhã, Busca refúgio ao final do dia À espera do retorno Que a noite nega-se a permitir. *Agamenon Troyan é poeta brasileiro MSN; machadocultural@hotmail.com SKYPE: tarokid18 BLOG: www.fanzineepisodiocultural.blogspot.com

    oltre ad essere odiosa è pure ipocrita fino al midollo. proprio lei di intonazione non dovrebbe nemmeno parlarne, stonata com'era e come senz'altro sarà ancora. meno male che di cantare ha smesso. speriamo smetta presto anche di fare sermoni sull'intonazione!
