La noia (2024)


Born in Maratea on April 10, 2001, Angelina Mango has established herself as a prominent Italian singer-songwriter.

As the daughter of Pino Mango, notably recognized as Mango, and Laura Valente, the former vocalist for Matia Bazar, Angelina was raised in Lagonegro within the Potenza province alongside her elder brother Filippo, who was born in 1995. Music runs deep in their family, with both siblings passionately embracing their musical heritage. Angelina’s early musical influences include iconic acts such as the Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and Aretha Franklin, alongside a profound respect for the late 16th to early 17th-century compositions, particularly from the Venetian school composers like Giovanni Gabrieli and Carlo Gesualdo, known for their polyphonic sacred music and madrigals.

Her academic journey led her to a scientific high school in September 2014, which she later paused due to her father’s untimely demise. The family moved to Milan in 2016, where she not only pursued her education further but also ventured into music, performing in a band with her brother on drums.

Angelina’s musical career took a significant leap forward with the release of her debut single “Va tutto bene” on November 13, 2020, setting the stage for her first EP “Monolocale.” The following year saw her opening for Giovanni Caccamo and Michele Placido on the “Parola Tour,” in addition to showcasing her talent during the Milan Music Week in November 2021. Despite participating in the Sanremo Giovani with the track “La tua buona colazione,” she didn’t make it to the final round.

Her collaboration with Sony Music and producer Enrico Brun in 2022 marked a new phase in her career, participating in the Concerto del Primo Maggio and winning the Live Award at “Musica da bere.” This period also saw the release of singles like “Formica,” “Walkman” (produced by Tiziano Ferro), and “Rituali” (featuring Nashley). In September 2022, she appeared on the Rai 3 show “Via dei Matti nº0.”

Angelina’s talents shone through during her stint on the twenty-second season of “Amici di Maria De Filippi,” broadcast on Canale 5, where she not only secured second place but also dominated the singing category. Her achievements on the show included opening for Elisa and performing at the “Capodanno in musica” concert. She released “Voglia di vivere” and “Mani vuote” during her time on “Amici,” followed by “Ci pensiamo domani” on May 12, 2023, which preluded her EP “Voglia di vivere,” released a week later. The EP quickly rose to second on the FIMI Album Chart, earning a gold record, while the lead single emerged as a summer anthem, achieving triple platinum status. She graced several major festivals in mid-2023, including “Battiti Live” and “TIM Summer Hits.”

On October 1, 2023, Angelina previewed “Che t’o dico a fa'” on “Amici di Maria De Filippi,” officially releasing it five days later to platinum acclaim. Her “Voglia di vivere” Tour commenced on October 12, 2023, in Naples, achieving sold-out status across Italy, coinciding with the release of “Fila indiana” for the “Noi siamo leggenda” TV series soundtrack.

Her successful entry into the 74th Sanremo Festival was announced on December 3, 2023, where she performed “La noia” from February 6 to 10, 2024. A highlight was her rendition of “La rondine,” a nod to her father’s legacy, performed with the Orchestra of Rome’s string quartet. Angelina clinched the top spot on February 11, 2024, outperforming Geolier and Annalisa with their respective entries.

By winning the festival of Sanremo, Angelina became first choice to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest. She accepted the challenge. “La Noia” was one of the favourites in the betting odds. In the end, she ended up in 7th place.
