"I'm excited to be back on the stage again, ” Gambi shares. “I believe that live music is a magic cure. It heals the listener and the musician at the same time.”

She has recorded and worked with many renowned artists, including Gato Barbieri, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Gil Goldstein, Wallace Roney, Patrice Rushen, Lenny White, Donald Vega, Helen Sung, Dave Stryker and Antonio Farao.
Letizia graduated with a Masters Degree in Jazz Vocal Performance at the Jazz School “Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado" in Milan.
