Andrea Liarco, literally grew up in music and dance, was born in Rome in 1989, and he started studying Violin and Piano when he was 4 years old.
The passion for dancing was born a little later, starting to break bows while dancing at the same time as playing.
Always torn between understanding how the world works and living it without overthinking, he remains very open to various musical genres, listening to Classical, passing through Jazz to electronic music.
Although already interested in Hip Hop, the first couple dance style he methodically learned was Salsa at the age of 20. From there, over the years, he approached many dance styles, only to fall in love definitively with Blues in 2016.
He is graduated in violin at the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia in Rome, and he also follows the piano program up to the intermediate exam of the eighth year.
He forms himself through high school, sports, the Conservatory, dance schools, but above all, thanks to concerts, theatrical tours, and festivals, music and dance allow him to travel extensively and perform with exceptional artists, broadening his horizons to continue improving.
He decided to specialize in jazz and electronic music, while integrating his knowledge with guitar and harmonica on the one hand, and DJ and music production on the other.
Andrea started to teach music when he was only 16 years old and he still teaching until now, Between 2009 and 2012 he played in the Advanced Junior Orquestra and at the same time he teached like official tutor of the Education department of Santa Cecilia in the “Auditorium Parco della Musica” in Rome.
Then, between 2014 and 2019, he took part like musician, dancer and actor of “Nuda e Cruda” tour with Anna Mazzamauro.
From 2016 to 2020, he worked as a violinist, dj, organizer, and musical coordinator at «La Porta de Principe.» Starting in 2020, he collaborated with the musical events agency of Alberto Tozzi.
In 2019, he joined the Swinghaus team in Rome, giving classes of Blues and Lindy Hop together with his partner Lucía Mendoza, helping to grow the blues scene also in the organization of events, as a violinist / harmonica player, and as a sound technician / lights.
A move to Valencia in 2020 provided an opportunity for Andrea to immerse himself further in blues as a dancer and instructor while also allowing him to embark on his musical projects, like Dandrea, Old Barrels, Revolution Band, and his personal one-man-band project.
Specifically for Blues, he participated in two editions of the Bluesology Teacher Training and The Jump – an immersive week of dance training. He also served as artistic director and music manager for a musical events agency in Rome.
As of 2023, Andrea Liarco continues to evolve and excel in both the music and dance realms, participating in numerous festivals, honing his skills, and embracing the rich tapestry of blues, fusion, and electronic music.
With a newfound passion for woodworking, a Vibelin project, and a dedication to educating others in various forms of music, Andrea’s artistic journey remains as dynamic and diverse as the genres he adores.
