Biography

Laura Inserra was born in Sicily, Italy. At the age of 15 she started studying classical piano, but her passion for research led her to the improvisation style. She played with different musicians and she explored various musical genres, and within a few years she was able to apply the free improvisation technique on many instruments: bass, soprano sax, classical flute and ethnic percussion instruments.

Thanks to musicians and teachers from various continents, she learned to both play and construct native instruments of the world, like the didgeridoo from Australia, the djembe from Africa, bamboo flutes from India and other instruments created by her.


In 1993 she moved to Rome to study psychology. At this point her research intensified, specializing in ethnic/tribal instruments and cultural anthropology. This is when she also started teaching percussion instruments and didgeridoo.


She attended the Classical Music Conservatory in Italy, where she studied classical orchestral percussion. Thanks to my teacher Gianluca Ruggeri she intensified her skill in minimalist music. These years were very important because they allowed her to develop her personal style.


At 21 she created and directed a theatrical multimedia performance called ‘Apologia della Gioia’, involving a live ensemble of thirty artists as musicians, actors, dancers, poets and performers. This is the vision she holds in all my works: different expressions of art all in an unique event. Now these productions are called Samavesha.
