“I see myself in you, when I was twenty years old too, when my voice seemed to me to be the only certain thing to hold on to, in the sea of ​​insecurities and anxiety in which I floundered every day. It seemed to me that my voice was more intelligent than me, more beautiful than me, more mature, less clumsy… Now I know that a whisper communicates more than a thousand high notes, but you have to learn it… So I try to teach you, because all that feeling that you have inside you must not remain silent but can come out freely and make the hearts of those who listen to you vibrate, including mine”.

Two years ago, Laura Valente posted a photo of her daughter Angelina Mango on Instagram, with this very timely dedication. Angelina made millions of hearts vibrate, winning first place in Sanremo. A stage, that of the Ariston, which her mother also trod three times as the voice of Matia Bazar. His father, Mango, participated in the festival on seven occasions.

Laura Valente, 61 years old, from Milan, is a singer-songwriter and chorister, but also a theater actress. After winning a national competition for singer-songwriters in the Bari area in 1981, she was noticed by Gianni Bella and Mogol and she began some collaborations as a backing vocalist in duets and recordings. Two years after her, her future partner, Mango, struck by her vocal flexibility, hired her as a backing vocalist. “In November 1983, while he was recording “Oro”, we met, through the record’s producer, who was also mine. We began a demanding artistic collaboration, so much so that Pino wrote practically all of my only solo album released in 1995. The friendship and esteem turned into a true and profound bond of love, even though we were quite different in character” Laura recalled in an interview with Corriere.

The general public’s notoriety arrived in 1989, when she took over from Antonella Ruggiero as the voice of Matia Bazar. She will remain in the group until 1998, in the most rock period of the formation. Laura and Mango have two children, Angelina and Filippo. After the experience with Matia Bazar, Valente’s career continued on various tracks, touching on blues, jazz, theater, where she played Maria Callas. In Amici’s school, last year he held a workshop dedicated to singers. In addition to being an interpreter and songwriter, she is also a vocal coach and holds interpretation seminars throughout Italy.

For 8 years he has also lent his voice to the Nazarian Polyphonic Choir, a group made up of judges, lawyers and magistrates, which collaborates with the San Vittore Prison.

“My mother is the person I respect most in the world – Angelina said in an interview – She taught me that the best choices you can make are the ones you make out of love. She actually did everything out of love. My mother built a family for love, she left her job, she abandoned music for love.. what she did was wonderful”
