“FABIANA STRIFFLER is a very talented violinist who plays directly from the heart. Her beautiful sound is a reflection of herself. Fabiana has a unique balance of keen Intuition and Intellect that allows her to make pure music no matter what creative situation she finds herself in.“ New York 2016, Garry Dial (Grammy “live at the Village Vanguard”)

Born in 1988, Fabiana studied Jazz and Classical violin at the University of Arts in Berlin (UdK) and the Conservatory of Music (Hanns Eisler). Her early years she spent with her lovely family in Italy. During her childhood she was encouraged to engage in a variety of artistic and musical activities. By the age of 13 she was performing music styles other than classical, which awakened her interest in improvised music.
Fabiana is both, a brilliant violinist and a robust fiddler.

She learned with Greg Cohen with whom she has maintained a musical collaboration and a close friendship above all since the beginning of her studies, Mark Feldman, Carla Kihlstedt, Ken Peplowski, Andy Statman, Garry Dial, John Hollenbeck, Kurt Rosenwinkel, David Friedman, Stephan Braun, Ulrich Bartel, Stephan Picard, Dragan Radosavievich and others.
