Frantic Items: Valentina Magaletti's Percussive Odyssey
London based drummer Valentina Magaletti is extremely busy, constantly performing and recording, deepening a life long commitment to rhythm. Since moving from Bari in Southern Italy over twenty years ago, Magaletti has embarked on a dizzying array of collaborations with many of the finest musicians in the global experimental scene. Aside from unnamed studio sessions and extensive liner notes, special albums by Moin, Tomaga and Vanishing Twin have stacked on top of each other each year at a fast rate, not to mention the exploratory solo recordings. This interview with Magaletti is the base for the first percussion special on Frantic Items.
