Lina Allemano

LINA ALLEMANO is a Canadian trumpeter, improviser, and prolific composer with an active international career, performing and recording cutting-edge contemporary music primarily in experimental, conceptual, improvised and jazz settings, but also working in a wide array of other genres. Born and raised in Edmonton Alberta, Allemano moved to Toronto in 1993. She is educated in both classical and jazz trumpet and specializes in extended technique on her instrument. Allemano now splits her time between the music scenes in TORONTO and BERLIN, and she runs her own internationally-acclaimed record label LUMO RECORDS.

Allemano composes music primarily for her forward-thinking acoustic quartet LINA ALLEMANO FOUR, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015, as well as her Berlin- based power-trio OHRENSCHMAUS. She also leads the electric improvising quartet TITANIUM RIOT and the trumpet / live-processing duo BLOOP, and is a longtime member of Rob Clutton’s CLUTTERTONES. As well as being a side-musician in many other groups in both Toronto and Berlin, Allemano is also busy collaborating with many of today’s top groundbreaking musicians in countless other international projects. She has been releasing albums and touring extensively with her bands and many others all across Canada, USA and Europe for years. As a session musician, Allemano's trumpet playing can also be heard on countless albums, film and television soundtracks.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
