Catali Antonini

Catali Antonini, a native of Corsica, is at the junction of the melodist Italian jazz school and improvised music. She founded the Antonini trio (with Stephane Pelegri - vibraphone & Manu Vallognes - fretless bass) in which she performs as a vocal instrumentalist and is able to explore her own personal take on the European jazz movement and find her place in it. The Antonini Trio appears regularly on the jazz festivals scenes, has recorded 3 albums: «Academy House» (1996), «Chateau de Sable» (2001), «d’antre deux terres» (2005) and won the second prize of the ALLUM’JAZZ competition in 1999. In 2000, Catali was a finalist in the French National Jazz Orchestra european competition (Dir. Paolo Damiani). She obtained the State diploma in Jazz (teaching) in 2007.
