97. Valentina Raffaelli



"I grew up going to see live opera and the ballet. So all I wanted to play was Verdi [...] something catchy and fun for a ten year-old girl. But all [my teacher allowed] me to play was Bach until my fingers fell off!"


Growing up on a beach resort in Italy, loving opera and Motown, and having a very healthy obsession with good food, Valentina talks on all these things and more. From her former band, Sunshine Superman, to her newer solo work and her work with her folk band, Sparkle Pony, Dan and Valentina cover a lot of ground, and still manage to geek out about food, too.
