Luciana Morelli is an Argentine singer and composer living in Basel, Switzerland. In 2014 she released her first album "Mandala" of jazz standards and own compositions. In 2015 the group won the contest "Música en Bares Notables" and has performed in the Buenos Aires International Jazz Festival 2015.
Since 2016 she has been leading and producing the show Jazz At The Movies, an audiovisual jazz and film show with a weekly steady gig at Bebop Club, a famous jazz club in Buenos Aires. In 2017 Jazz At The Movies performed in the prestigious cycle "Jazzologia" at the Cultural San Martin and in 2018 they won the contest "Música en Bares Notables" in Buenos Aires.
Luciana Morelli group presents contemporary arrangements of Argentinian traditional songs and own compositions. The songs are part from a creative process with photographs, dreams and texts in which jazz and folklore are in constant dialogue.
After working extensively on the songs in a trio format, the clarinettist Philipp Hillebrand and the drummer Paulo Almeida join the band. In this new quintet format, the group explores new colours, dynamics and textures in a deeper level with the awareness of what each song needs and acquires a richer palette that combines the imprint of each member of the band and their own personalities, cultural backgrounds, experiences and artistic approaches with a particular aesthetic given by the lyrics and arrangements of the singer, exclusively thought for this group.
