Manuele Frau

Musician, singer, audio engineer, and producer born in Rome, Italy. From a young age, he has been fascinated by music and artistic expression. He started playing electric guitar but soon explored other instruments such as electric bass, keyboard, and drums. This kind of approach gave him a particular flexibility of expression.

During his musical career, he has come across different genres with bands such as Dirty Power Game, Black Land and Der Noir. From hardcore punk to heavy metal, new wave to industrial music, he has performed internationally since 2005, touring throughout Europe and the United States. He has played in small venues and large festivals, opening for bands such as Duran Duran, Uli John Roth of the Scorpions, Voivod, White Hills, Karma To Burn, Farflung, Tribes, Extreme Noise Terror, GBH, The Varukers, and Wolfbrigade.

Currently residing in Helsinki, he moved to intend to develop his idea of sound and expression through new collaborations with local artists. He is now a member of Nona Et Decima and Mortar Devotions. In 2022, he began collaborating as a curator with New Polar Sound, a label born from encountering multiple artistic realities around the Tischenko Gallery in Helsinki.
