A Traveling School Project

Lilly / Liliana Santon / vocalist

Lilly Santon trained as an architect before venturing into the world of jazz and energy therapy. After spending her formative years in Brazil, she attended middle and high school in Padua, Italy and received her degree in architecture from the University of Venice.

Lilly lived in New York and Munich between 1980 and 2003 where she worked as an architect and studied jazz with the likes of Barry Harris, Sheila Jordan, Mark Murphy and Jay Clayton. During the 80's in New York she performed with Don Cherry's Collective Ensemble alongside Jim Pepper, Bob Moses, Dennis Charles and Clarence “C” Sharpe. While deepening her musical studies, she trained in bio-energetic therapy, which has been integrated into her teaching methods in private classes and workshops. In 2003, she moved to Italy and Spain, and co-founded the Cultural Association Traveling School. Lilly performs regularly with Satoko Fujii, Jimmy Weinstein Quintet, and different formations of the Traveling School Band.

Projects include Sten Hosfalt's Microtonal Ensemble Dimensional States; vocal duet improvisations with renowned composer Constance Cooper; 2014 appereances in NYC recording sessions with Jimmy Weinstein Quintet, Noah Preminger.  New collaborations 2016/2017 include Johnny Lapio's Porta Palace featuring Satoko Fukjii, Giancarlo Schiaffini and Natsuki Tamura.  Story Told By Sound a multi-media project with Elie Massias and Jimmy Weinstein
