Why 'Copanello'...........As well as being a beautiful town in the Calabria region of Italy, our name 'Copanello' is inspired from Kokopelli, an ancient Indian deity. Folk Lore depicts Kokopelli as the Dancing Man who represents the spirit of music, dance and love, spreading joy to all around him. Copanello represents our joy and love of making music and sharing with others.

“Michael James & Anita de Lisen make a delightful pairing as COPANELLO. They have crafted an entertaining & popular show, presenting a wide range of musical repertoire” – Amelia Farrugia (Sydney Sings)
"Copanello never ceases to amaze me. From their professionalism off stage to their skill onstage, they are a unique and talented performance team. Their hours of painstaking rehearsal pays off and is evident with each soaring note and meticulous harmony. Michael has such a rich and deep voice, effortlessly striking each note. Anita has, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful voices on circuit. They cleverly offer something for everyone in the audience, from popular music to the more operatic classics, they do it all. And with style." - Sandy Bigara StarViking
