Tiziana Ghiringhelli "Cheyenne crossed the River" vocals-percussions
(author, composer, manager)
Creator and founder of the project, Tiziana is passionate about rhythms. Her stage career started as a flamenco dancer (1995 to 2004), where she discovered the cajòn, originally a Peruvian instrument adopted by the flamenco tradition. Subsequently devoting herself to the congas, she studied at the École de Jazz et Musique Actuelle in Lausanne, where she was inspired to harmoniously combine the two percussion instruments in the rock project KILIRADIO. Tiziana brings a particular touch to their musical style, intensified by her deep and interpretative voice.
Oliver Frei "Oliz" vocals-guitar
Band co-founder, Oliver has always been passionate about the guitar since he was a teenager. After experimenting with various musical styles, he enrolled in the École de Jazz et Musique Actuelle in Lausanne. In the 90s, he played solo guitar in the blues band Jesse James & The Gangsters, selected for the opening act B.B King’s concert in Lugano in 1992. Prolific songwriter, he enriches their style by his deeply captivating and charismatic voice. Currently he teaches music at the Yverdon Conservatory.
Antonio Raimondo bass
Matteo Frapolli drums
CH-Lausanne is the meeting point of the unbreakable founder duo, coming from South of Switzerland, backbone of the band : Tiziana Ghiringhelli (vocals-percussions) and Oliver Frei (vocals-guitar).
After successfully collaborating from 2002-07 in the pop band Tamuera, they formed KILIRADIO with the original intention to propose personal interpretations revisiting 60's-70's cult rock songs. Almost immediately, this shared alchemy full of enthusiasm and creativity gave way to new original groovy compositions, finding their place within the "Adult Alternative Rock" landscape.
Performing with various artists from 2013, KILIRADIO finally welcomed Antonio Raimondo on bass and Matteo Frapolli on drums.
Loved by the public for their empathetic and communicative musicality and peppy interpretations, KILIRADIO is selected for the musical competition TicinoBands Live Contest 2015 and arriving all the way to the final.
