(Mariangela Bettanini)


From the ages of 10 to 15 she took private lessons in classical piano.
At the age of 15, she started to teach herself to play the guitar - her black “Ibanez”- and sing, following her natural talent.
She finished classical high school and decided to become a professional singer.
At 22 she went on tour with Ombretta Colli in the musical theatre show “Marilyn”, directed by Giorgio Gaber.
In 1983, as a private student, she obtained her Compimento Inferiore for the Diploma of Classical Singing at the N. Paganini Conservatory in Genoa.
In 1989 and 1990 went on a live tour with Sabrina Salerno, in Europe and Russia, as a backing vocalist and solo singer.
In 1991 she approached Hatha Yoga, discovering the benefits offered by relaxation and posture techniques. She gradually came to realise that body, mind, psyche and soul make up the total of the singer’s instrument and are inextricably linked.
From '93 to '98 she lived on the Cote d’Azur in France, singing in the main hotels and clubs of the French Riviera broadening her musical culture substantially and building up an international repertoire from the multiple facets of different musical genres and vocal styles.
In 1995 her quest regarding the voice led her to Louis-Jacques Rondeleux who was co-founder of the Centre Pluridisciplinaire in Paris with Maurice Béjart.
She studied classical singing privately with him for 3 years, developing a technique that would change her voice forever, extending its sound, power and improving breathing.
She took Sannyas in 2001
In 2003 Prayan created “The Fragrance”, an essentially vocal CD, which she sung, composed, arranged, produced and recorded.
In 2005 the Cd “The Soul” was released, duetting with Enrico Pinna from Genoa.
In 2005 her research in the field of jazz music, begun a few years previously, was put to good use in the recording and producing of the CD “Emotionally” with Dado Moroni, Paolino Dalla Porta and Enzo Zirilli.
In 2006 she obtained the certificate of Voicing®, a spiritual and vocal journey which celebrates the expression of our emotions and makes contact with the most intimate reality.
From 2006 to 2010 she took part in the New York jazz scene, holding several concerts and recording the CD "Jazzin' Genova", a tribute to the Genoese School and her city's singer-songwriters.
In 2010, a further spiritual and thus musical transition leads her to express her being through mystical music.
This consequently gave birth to: singing and meditation gatherings entitled : “The Song of Silence”, the Concert “The Divine Melody” and the CD tribute to Christian Sacred Music "O Magnum Mysterium".
She travelled in India and then lived for some time in Konya, Turkey where Mevlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi, the Sufi Poet of Love, was buried and subsequently published her new CD "The Invitation", inspired by the poems of Rumi.
