For over 25 years, Daniela Nardi has established herself not only as an award-winning musician but as a producer, curator and arts advisor. Through her work in multidisciplinary multicultural performing arts, she has had the opportunity to develop an expansive network of personal and professional contacts which have enabled her to create a well-regarded profile locally, nationally and internationally.
She has had a special focus on Italian Canada. She is the Founder/Artistic Director of Salone di Cultura, a successful series of multidisciplinary cultural exchanges between Canada, Italy and its sizable diasporas. She is the past Chair of the Culture Committee for Villa Charities and the past Cultural Director at the Columbus Centre, where she developed the institution’s forward-looking Cultural Strategic Plan. Currently she is in development for what she calls the Italian Music Experience, a music series and summit titled TEMPOConnect. As a result of these initiatives, she has carved out a place for herself as a recognized and respected curator of Italian arts and creativity.
Musically, Nardi has been making music all her life. She has recorded and toured, performing at prestigious venues like Koerner Hall in Toronto, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Montreal Jazz Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. She has four recordings under her own name and her global music project, Espresso Manifesto. Awards include: Best Female Vocalist - Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards; Best Female Vocalist - Now Magazine Best of Toronto; Best Group Nominee - Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards; and Best World Music Artist Nominee Toronto Independent Music Awards.
She has recently served as the Executive/Artistic Director of 918 Bathurst Centre and sits on the boards of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and SING! Vocal Arts Festival.
Mondo Zoom Conversation: Mondo & CMW Co-Host Be Present Everywhere: Introductions & Connections
5/18/21, 9:00 PM
Join our global town hall as Mondo -- in partnership with Canadian Music Week and LyricFind -- introduces you to the global community of music conferences, trade missions, partners, consultants, organizers and creatives. The panel series, hosted by Robert Singerman, debuted on a Mondo zoom over a year ago at the start of the pandemic and has since brought hundreds of international colleagues and thousands of new friends together to speak at virtual conferences from NYC and Toronto to Kenya, Rio & LA, with other virtual forays to & from dozens of cities and countries spanning the globe to Be Present Everywhere (while staying home). Meet these global specialists w/o the flights, hotels, per-diems, carbon, $$ and family costs. Many thousands of new music community connections have already been made and many more will be made here, through active chats, shared contacts, new business introductions, collaborations and experiential education. It's a lot of fun for all, like a great Mondo/CMW/LyricFind conference party. Thanks much to the amazing speakers joining and all participants.
