Eliana Fe is a Swiss opera and concert singer who, in her CD Surrender to the Divine, released her own song compositions in 2017. Eliana Fe combines classical singing of the West with ancient Sanskrit mantras (prayers, intercessions) of the East. With these songs she gave her first concert in Switzerland in March 2018.
Eliana Fe received her classical vocal training in Milan from three great musical personalities: Gina Cigna, Carla Castellani and Maestro Carlo Camerini. There she also received a scholarship for opera singing. Further training followed at the NOZ in Zurich (Neue Opernschule Zürich – New Opera School Zurich), and with Hanna Ludwig in Salzburg (voice) and Gert Krämer (acting).
Eliana Fe’s opera debut was as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Magic Flute at Stadttheater Baden. She has appeared in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Mexico and India, mainly as a concert soloist.
Since her childhood, she has intensively dealt with the concept of being and with self-inquiry and has been engaged in the philosophy of non-duality for many years. In several longer stays in India, she devoted herself completely to the concept of being and also became familiar with the ancient Sanskrit mantras and Bhajan texts (devotional), which she has set to music. Since 2010, in addition to her concert activities, she has been conducting silent retreats once or twice a year.
Eliana Fe is the author of two books: Engelchens Abenteuer (Angelino’s adventure) and Ihr seid multidemensionales Bewusstsein (You are multidimensional consciousness). She is currently working on additional songs based on prayers of Christianity and philosophical texts from the West. Three songs for choir and soprano have already been written.
