now playing Earlybird: Lefto

Drummers Inc: Valentina Magaletti

First broadcast date: 21 August 2018

Bari-born, London-based Valentina Magaletti is a drummer and percussionist who strategically tries to enrich the folkloristic and conventional palette of the place where she is born, experimenting with new places and sounds.

She worked, performed and co-wrote with Econoline, Bat for Lashes, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Fanfarlo, Oscillation, Lafawndah, Raime, Helm and many more.

In her current project, Vanishing Twin (“Choose Your Own Adventure” out on Soundways), she has a more conventional jazz approach that finds its escape in the drone/field recordings of the percussive approach in her other project Tomaga.

Valentina is joined by Tom Relleen from Tomaga.
