Ferrari describes her music as alternating at times between “deep pain and … incredible bliss”. These motifs proved critically successful in her debut album “Heartbreak Mixtape”, which was released in 2019 and received extremely well.

Personal journey

Namely, the brave leap she made from a soul-sucking job in the corporate world to her passion: music. With no assurances her career change would work out for her, Ferrari just took the leap, and in doing so, realized many great truths which she weaves into her music.

Closing statement

By itself, the healing power of music is already impressive, it has been recognized as having healing powers for both physical and mental elements across a myriad of cultures, and even Hippocrates recognizes its power.

However, Angela Ferrari has managed to take it to another level through the merging of her music and modern day spiritual teachings to create a positive impact in a widely relatable way.
