Giulia Tammanini

Born in 1988, in Trento, Italy, Giulia grew up in a very musical family who influenced and inspired her love of music at an early age. She began playing the saxophone at eight years old, and three years later she was admitted to The Bonporti Conservatory in Trento, where she graduated with honours in 2007. During her studies, she had the opportunity to take part in masterclasses with internationally renowned artists, such as Fabrizio Mancuso, Jean-Denis Michat, Sylvain Malézieux, Gilles Tressos, and Federico Mondelci. In September 2010, studying under the noted teachers Armando Ghidoni and Pepito Ros, she received the Second Level Academic Diploma in Saxophone from the Bonporti Conservatory in Trento with top marks and special mention. During this period, she played in the Festival Pergine Spettacolo Aperto Orchestra, the J Futura Orchestra, and in various chamber ensembles: saxophone and piano duet, saxophone and vibraphone duet, saxophone quartet. After moving to Paris in 2010, she continued her studies at the CNR of Boulogne Billancourt, where she obtained the “Diplôme d'études musicales” under the guidance of saxophonist Jean-Michel Goury. Life in Paris proves to be essential for her musical development and gives her the opportunity to meet and work with other artists. Of particular importance is the relationship with the Brazilian guitarist José Ferreira with whom she formed the group Duo in Uno in 2012. Having traveled to and performed several times in Brazil, Giulia expands her experience and feeds her passion for Brazilian music. Nowadays she concentrates her artistic activity performing with the groups Duo In Uno, Trio In Uno, Travessias and Bécots da Lappa. In 2015, she recorded her first album "Lilas" with the group Trio In Uno. She performs in prestigious Parisian venues such as the New Morning, the Studio de l'Ermitage, the Sunset-Sunside Jazz Club, and internationally (England, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Brazil and Paraguay).
