Singer and songwriter of BARE INFINITY.
Ida Elena is a singer, songwriter and actress from Italy.
After studying at the Achademy of drama and musical techniques from 7 years (she started at 12), she gets a degree and she starts performing in theaters all around Italy.
At 19 she really thinks she only wants to be an actress but when she is invited at the National television to sing in front of 2 millions people (I raccomandati, RAIUNO. 2004) she understands she wants to sing more than anything else.
After some years of practicing in local clubs, she starts to sing with an original rock band, The Dark side of Venus (2010, and with a Blackmore’s Night tribute band: those last ones were crucial to her because, thanks to them, she starts attending Blackmore’s Night’ shows in Germany and so she gets to know the great master of historical instruments, Albert Dannenmann (ex Blackmore’s Night, Cantus Lunaris) and, eventually, the great soprano Gaby Koss (ex Haggard, Cantus Lunaris).
Thanks to the songs Ida Elena wrote (the Ballad of the silver dressed lady, Awakening), she starts working with those two great musicians, first as a collaboration for her solo project and, eventually, as a permanent member of hte Celtic Ensemble Cantus Lunaris (2012) where she was asked to join thanks to her peculiar and very flexible mezzo-soprano voice with a very unique technique.
Thanks to Cantus Lunaris, Ida Elena played all around Germany and Austria, including Cantus Lunaris performance as headliner at the biggest Gothic festival in Germany, WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN 2013.
In January 2014, Ida Elena join the symphonic metal band Bare Infinity!!
Ida Elena recorded one cd as a soloist, (My) World Music (2011) and one cd with Cantus Lunaris “Fabula antiqua (2012/13).
