Born in Atlanta GA, Daniela Sofia Bragnolo AKA Nanu is an Argentinian singer/songwriter rapper currently living in Toronto. She moved to Buenos Aires at the age of 1 where she was raised by her parents and Argentinian Italian grandparents. She showed early signs of passion for dance and dreamed of becoming a ballerina and singer.
At only 5 years old she immersed herself in dance classes, also taking on piano and musical theatre. Fate has its own way as they say and a bad leg injury would have her give up any dream of becoming a professional dancer. She still pursued dancing and studied under Argentinian household names like Valeria Lynch, landing her first roles in a musical for Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory in Miami. She later auditioned and landed roles for The Lion King, Sleeping Beauty and Newsies. Life dramas, her parents’ divorce, health complications and a steady group of naysayers forced her to put her dreams on hold and moved to Canada to enrol at Ryerson University in Toronto, in the Economics and Finance program. After 3 years keeping up with a 4.0 GPA average, an excellence scholarship and president of course union title, Nanu built up the courage to give the music one more try and she did not disappoint.
In just 9 months, she released three singles "Toda", "Diss 2 My EX" and "Ting" and managed to land in the top 10 spot for top female Toronto Rappers on Spotify.
A sensation on Instagram with over 30 000 devoted followers, a Gemini with a cancer moon, Nanu is authentic in her art and only speaks her truth. Wether she is ranting on a song about her ex, or telling the cold truth about mental health, her battles with BPD, or new romances, she sings it straight and stops at nothing to be her authentic self.
