Irish Women in Jazz Series: LUISA ANNIBALI
Italian-born singer and songwriter living in Dublin, Luisa Annibali is a professional musician who has decided to devote her life to music and performance. She started playing the piano at the age of 7, but it took time to fully realize that music was not just her hobby.
In fact, after high school, she studied law.
During her law studies, she continued to take singing lessons and participate in different jazz, blues and musical theater workshops in Rome and worked part-time as a singer in bars and clubs and during private events. As soon as she graduated from law school, she worked in a law firm. Once she moved to Dublin she started playing guitar and composing her own original music only to realize that her career had to change for good.
In 2017, she applied and successfully entered Newpark College (now at DCU) to study “Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance”.

She is also an experienced vocal coach and music teacher and recently completed her BA in Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance at Dublin City University.
