LINA ALLEMANO is an internationally-acclaimed Canadian trumpeter, composer, improviser and bandleader with an active international career performing and recording cutting-edge contemporary music primarily in improvised, jazz and experimental settings. Allemano splits her time between TORONTO and BERLIN and is recognized as one of the leading innovative trumpeters on the scene today. She collaborates with a long and ever-expanding list of important international artists as well as running her own successful label LUMO RECORDS and leading multiple groundbreaking projects including her longtime acoustic quartet LINA ALLEMANO FOUR, Berlin-based power-trio OHRENSCHMAUS, electro-acoustic quartet TITANIUM RIOT, trumpet/electronics duo BLOOP, and her solo trumpet project.

LINA ALLEMANO FOUR is an acoustic chamber-jazz quartet that plays bandleader/trumpeter Lina Allemano's ground-breaking new music. Hailed as Canada's leading cutting-edge ensemble, the band is known internationally for their inventiveness and synergy as they deftly blur the line between composition and improvisation. The band has been touring extensively since 2005 all across Europe, USA and Canada. Their music has been described as abstract melodicism, combining lush colours with dense free-flowing rhythmic textures. The band's first 5 albums received many accolades internationally, and their 6th release, Vegetables (Lumo Records 2021), received even more praise and recognition, in many international publications including Downbeat Magazine, The Wire, JazzTimes, and many many more.
