Baku was like throwing your self down an airplane without a parachute but it was a really fun experience and it helped me to get to know better Ralph Siegel with whom I am glad that this year I am working again.The best part of the Baku experience was the park of the Crystal Hall. And I was live with Sevda Alekper Zadeh in the Jazz Session Breakfast TV during the Eurovision. Improvising and mixing our own personal music and vocals, accompanied with various musicians it was an indescribable experience. It is a very nice way to get to know each other. WOW

How did the 2013 project begin?
After Baku Ralph visited San Marino to see my show “Camelia” and I’ve listened to Crisalide, then he called the poet Mauro Balestri , who is the author of the song, and here we are with this song…

The title of the song is "Crisalide" whats the story behind the song? what did you think the 1st time you heard it?
I’ve felt like a finger touching a wound that was being cured with a very interesting musical harmony such melody was so similar to the type of songs I sing. “Crisalide” is like a breath of life, an awareness of a new truth to help us face courage, a positive message to recover our selves.... distroying all the walls that doesn’t let us to believe in ourselves. The Beatles used to say “Let it be” and I say “Fly”.

Describe your song with 4 words
A breath for life

Myself with a beautiful red color
