Rosanna D'Agnillo's music--global/classical/jazz crossover spanning eras, countries and languages-- is a stylish blend of lush vocals and multicultural instruments: violin, guitar, accordion, strings, keyboard, and woodwinds as well as the more eclectic offerings of santur, dulcimer, harp and oud. Add the soaring vocalizations of mezzo-soprano, Rosanna D'Agnillo and we are left with a rich fusion of music that is both " earthy and elegant" as reviewers have described the group. This is the unique stamp of Liata. "Old wine in new bottles." "The modern voice of romance".
