About Andrea Ramolo
Growing up a first-generation Italian-Canadian, award-winning recording artist Andrea Ramolo was immersed in Italian music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. As a singer-songwriter her music has explored many genres, from folk to rock and beyond. Over the past few years, she’s turned her attention increasingly back to her roots, exploring the beauty of Italian culture through music and beyond. Tonight she will share a repertoire of canzoni italiane she promises to deliver dal cuore (from the heart).
