GIUNGLA, AKA Emanuela Drei, a one-woman band from Bologna, already singer in Heike Has The Giggles and ex baxist in His Clancyness, leaves in January for an international tour to present her debut EP Camo, which was released in May for the Italian-English label Factory Flaws, produced by Federico Dragogna (Ministri).
Camo was one of the most appreciated debuts of 2016, and thanks to this disc Giungla has performed more than 60 concerts throughout Italy, sharing the stage with bands like Grimes and Battles. Her EP Camo has been internationally praised as “pure minimalism, delicately draped with melodic echos of Beach House and The XX” by Nylon Magazine and “a new dimension in dream pop” by the NME. She has played on big stages in France, Austria and Holand.
GIUNGLA was recently chosen to present her project at prestigious international festivals: Eurosonic in Holand, SXSW in the USA and Canadian Music Week in Canada.
GIUNGLA is one of the 19 projects selected in the call for internationalisation of Bolognese music 2016/17, to help musicians, artists and other workers to perform on an international stage, through participation in festivals, tours and exchanges.
