From the composition on her piano to the sewing machine on which she creates her costumes, through the production of the videos that accompanies her live performances, Alice combines her many talents to give life to her warrior Cigùri. Living in Berlin where she has her studio since many years, Alice originates from the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Her debut album, entitled “Mare Nostrum” from the ancient name the romans gave to the Sea, is now ready.

The music :
This artistic project grows out of the story of Cigùri, a deceased warrior from a secret tribe. The various media used unite to bring this martial tale back to life, and each song bears the witness of one of Cigùri’s past experiences, each one of her future lives.
This dark and melancholic pop with a glimpse of hope, pours out great energy with choirs, electronic and symphonic orchestrations, and, at times, settles back into the fragility and minimalism of a simple voice and piano.
The album :
To produce this album, Cigùri has surrounded herself with an army of musicians, whose brass and chords sublime her compositions. It took a little bit more than two years to finish the 12 titles opus. This album, symbol for the many lives of Cigùri, is an epic poem to the struggle of life and death.
