**********************

DEBRA MUGNANI sings in a style that is both sophisticated and emotionally direct. Her interpretations of the Great American Songbook show a deep love and respect for the material while adding a delightful spark of personality. Debra’s influences are Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McCrae and Morgana King. A native of San Francisco, Debra has also been greatly influenced and inspired by vocalists and vocal instructors she has studied with in the Bay Area including Kitty Margolis, Peter Maleitzke, Francis Devlin, Ava Victoria, Claudia Newberry, Faith Winthrop, Jesse Foster, Madeline Eastman and Dena De Rose.

Debra is ever inspired by this quote by Martha Graham. "There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."

She has choreographed, improvised and worked independently, and with local San Francisco Bay Area dance companies, and many accomplished jazz musicians. Her love of movement resulted in a wide vocabulary of movement training that includes jazz, ballet, modern, tap, gymnastics, improvisational techniques, various ethnic styles, and partner dancing, as well as, yoga, martial arts, healing intrinsic movement and energy work. Her main dance teachers include Anna Halprin, Ed Mock and Ann Marie Garvin.
