Giulia Loli is a musician, producer, artist.

She has been head engineer/producer at G.G.S.S/Rocca AlMileda Studio, both fixed and mobile in Brooklyn, Cairo, Tuscany & Amsterdam, for 20 years.
After a long stint of intensive recording/research in the laboratory-cave Rocca AlMileda in the most remote forests of Italy, she recently reentered the world’s atmosphere landing in Amsterdam.
“Plosive Polyrhythmic Instinct Deep Cut with Ancient Future Inscriptions fashioned by Hand, Unfashionably. Purposeful Anachronism for New dance. New spirituals”. “More Lonely Wolf than neoliberal Art-Jetsetter, inspired by Afrocentric ideas.” (Thomas Glaesser).
